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)

Depending on our schedules, I do what Wallner Builders does either before I go to bed, or first thing in the morning. I love going around the house and fluffing pillows, making sure all dishes are in the dishwasher, recycling items in the garage container, dirty laundry or decide what needs to be laundered today, etc.
Dusting days usually involve 4-5 rooms so it's consistent on each side of the house, same goes for vacuuming. No pets here, but a husband who is rather oblivious to small details. Love him to pieces though!

I agree with Liz and Lisa., There are just some things which make an immediate difference.
For me - no leaving the house for work in the morning without :
1 ) Making the bed,
2) Unpacking the clean dishes from the dishwasher and putting the morning's dirty dishes in - close the door!
3) Hanging the damp bathroom towels outside or somewhere in the sunshine
4) Cleaning the dog bowls once they finished eating and filling up the water bowls.
5) Straightening the throws and fluffing the pillows on the couches.

OK - so that's why I get up an hour before hubby - but it's worth it. Nothing is more depressing than walking into a kitchen with dirty dishes and a bedroom with an un-made bed, when you return from a long day's work. By doing these simple things I get to spend a bit more quality time with the dogs in the evening before I start cooking and doing the washing! Now I must just get hubby to follow suit! Why is it that ( most ) men can not be bothered by these things!

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.

I cannot tell you the model number, but more specifically the sink is a "no-overflow" vessel. That should narrow down the choices significantly.
