Sorry, I don't have a written record of the grout, but with this white tile it could be Laticrete "natural gray"; not cool but but just a warm, concrete ish, color of gray. It's probably very close to the color of the counter top, but I always make sure that the grout is less "colored" than anything else in the room.

For this screened porch, the wall is covered in Hardi lap siding, the same as whole house exterior.

The opening is 32" wide x 80" tall. A 36" door was trimmed and split, made possible by an existing vertical center rail in the door.

I'm sorry I don't have a record of the exact color. It's a match to a discontinued Martha Stewart color for Sherwin Williams.

Very nice design, Tim. I love the way the bookshelf is located near high traffic area, saving a lot of space. The TV stands is a timeless beauty. I just wonder whether the electronics (player, set top box, etc) actually are on top of it, or hidden elsewhere.

The components are not located in sight. I believe that they are inside the furniture cabinet as I don't recall a central "home-run" location elsewhere in the house.

Your observation about allowing ventilation is correct spray foam does not include the wide overhangs. The reveal at the top of the stone is in lieu of a typical "brick pocket" trim board.

Does the brick pocket just mean that it is open for ventilation of the air space? Seems like birds would make nests here...

This recess is only about 1 1/2" deep x 1 1/2" tall; there is a solid block at the back to which the stone is laid. (no relationship to ventilation)

7-Day Plan: Get a Spotless, Beautifully Organized Living Room

What works for me is spending 10 to 15 minutes first thing in the morning (making the bed, lick and a promise with the feather duster, wiping around the base of the toilet with a piece of toilet paper); spending 20 to 30 minutes after taking the dog out for his morning walk to make a pitcher of iced tea, run the vacuum, polish any furniture that's losing its shine; another 20 to 25 minutes after lunch to straighten the kitchen and do a quick mop of the kitchen and bathroom (two or three times a week); and in the evening, cleaning the kitchen after dinner and taking care of anything else that needs done before I allow myself to sit down at the pc or in front of the tv.

That means about an hour at best, to less than two hours at worst, spent cleaning every day, which is doable for most of us. It was certainly doable for me even when I was feeling really tired and worn out during the worst periods of my fight against cancer. During periods of being nauseated (like now as I type this) I find having a clean home to be therapeutic. I can't relax (or heal) in the middle of a mess.

The reason it works is because I pick up after myself throughout the day. Keeping my home neat and clean is a lot easier than letting things pile up and then having to spend time cleaning up the clutter. I've never liked doing laundry, but I do it twice a week just to get it out of the way. And now it's time to take the dog out for another walk and then my reward, sitting down at 9 pm to watch "Inspector Morse".

The box gutter, on the front of the house, is sized to carry the rain water to a scupper at each end. Though we haven't seen much rain lately, the system worked in a downpour. Sides and rear of the house are guttered with downspouts that feed to underground rainwater storage tanks.
