@Heather Moritz: Yes, the floors are engineered wood but they were site finished, not prefinished.

The ceiling height is 10'. The French doors are set at 8'. I'm pretty sure the coffers are 12" deep. Hope this helps.

Thank you..Is it the same color on the beams?? I actually applied special walnut to pine beams and posts( (7 of them) after wood was conditioned and darker than expected.. Now I am afraid the floor in dark walnut will make the room look too dark.. I have light grey ship lap walls so I think I will try the sp. walnut on floor.. This is a mountain house!! Thanks for your quick response.. fabulous room!!

I really like that stain over White Oak. The satin finish looks great.

The rug is a bound seagrass rug. This one came from Myers Carpets in Atlanta, but they are readily available most anywhere.
