Hello. The wood door species is a Douglas Fir and the ceiling at the entry is cedar. Unfortunately I do not recall the stain color of this project as it has been a number of years since I completed this project. Thank you for your inquiry.

I don't recall the actual stain color however, I typically will use a stain with a brown undertone rather than red or yellow. A walnut stain generally will follow this idea. The stone was applied to a 15" framed box. Thank you for the inquiry.

The stone varies in size from 4" to 18" pieces. The wood used on this project is cedar. Thank you for the inquiry.

Hello,

The stone is a manufactured product by Boulder Creek Stone and is a 50-50 blend of Laner and Newbury stone in the Prairie Bluff Pattern. It's one of the most realistic manufactured products I have been able to find. The small boulders along the sidewalk are natural limestone and the pebbles on the front stoop are stones from the Lake Superior/Duluth area. The tile on the front stoop is a porcelain product. Thank you for the inquiry!

Hello Becky,

See the previous thread on the stone pebbles. Surrounding the stone pebbles is a porcelain tile over the concrete poured stoop. No additional concrete was used in this process. Thanks

Hello Bruce,

The tray ceiling is at 10', 9' in the remaining portion. There is a 2" x 6" sheetrock front to the soffit you see here in this photo and a 2" x 4" framing behind it leaving a difference of 8" between the finished area. It was a bit tight but made it work nicely. I would recommend going a bit more in height with the roof trusses, perhaps a bare minimum of 10" between the two to make it a little easier for the finishing crew. Thank you for the inquiry!
