This floor is a 3 1/2" White Oak floor with a mix of DuraSeal Antique Brown and Ebony. This photo is a little deceiving as it looks a little lighter because of the refection of the light but if you look at some of the other photos of this home you will see how it is a little darker.

You have done a super job, we all like it. What do you recommend for dirty / wet shoes / boots, do you prefer them directly (on mats..) on the floor under benches, if done again - would you put a shelf there for them ?

What we recommend depending on the season would be floor mats for wet dirty boots, shoes, etc. Sometime we will put a shelf in but then again you will have dirt on them and will more upkeep on keeping those shelves clean. In the summer the shelves would be great for flip flops and sandals and then in winter you could take out the shelves for taller boots, etc.

This wood for these cabinets would be birch and the stain color we chose was a stain color called Chocolate that we had our cabinet company custom mix. So I don't have the exact product and formula for you...sorry!

These mirrors are a little bit smaller in size, 20" x 27"

Typically we do 3-4" off the 4" back-splash and then the bottom of the light is around the same dimensions so another 3-4 " above the mirror! Hope this information helps!

I called ABC Millwork about the trim you used in this house, but they are a wholesaler and haven't called me back. I'm wondering if the square shoe you used was custom made? I've been looking for it but can't find it anywhere.

We do have the blueprints for this home however we are not able to give them out. Reason being is this was a custom design that the homeowners paid an architect and they have the rights to those plans solely. Sorry!

The laundry unit itself came with the stack kit. Most front loading washer and dryer appliances will come with that option. Then our custom cabinetry company, Christian Brothers Cabinetry Inc, built a custom enclosure for a more built in look.

We love our HanStone countertops! Unlike Granite, it does not require sealing, which is a major benefit. We found a great HanStone slab and manufacturer through Web Don (http://www.web-don.com/our-products/quartz/hanstone-quartz/) They were a great help!!

Unfortunately this is the only photo that I have of this fireplace. You should order a sample board of the stone if you are unsure because the stone always looks a little bit different in the brochure than they do in person.
