    We did shiplap wood walls. No T&G, just used flat side of boards and installed them a nickels width apart. They came out perfect!

    My husband is looking to shiplap on an accent wall, what kind of wood did you use?

    The siding is Southern Pine T & G. The ceiling boards are about 5" wide and the wall boards are about 8" wide. The ceiling boards and boards on three walls are original. The boards on the sink wall are new. All new material was primed and back-primed prior to installation. Original boards were sanded and primed. After installation of the new boards, all were primed again and received two finish coats of paint.

    What a great finish process.

    Hi, Rhea. Thank you for the compliment! You are asking the right questions and I encourage you to talk with your contractor. Every situation is unique. In this particular case, this is wood without a moisture barrier but this bathroom has a free-standing tub with a wrap around shower curtain, high quality ventilation and is minimally used by guests. We would have selected a different system if it received regular use, and/or there was a tub surround. It's important to create the perfect assembly unique to your condition. If it's not correct there will be problems, like condensation happening within the wall system in an unfortunate way. Good luck with your project!

    Vertical might work, but how to attach them? Maybe a circa 1970's wood paneling look, easy to install and probably much cheaper than these. Painted wood paneling finish is one of my personal favorites.

    There is paneling intended for exterior applications (sheds, etc.) called SmartSide Wood Siding Panels. You can get them at Lowes for about$32 per 4x8 sheet. They are pre-primed and are meant to be in harsher environments than a bathroom. They will probably work well and the wood appears to be going vertical.

    With exception for original pieces having been restored, the remaining furnishings and decorative items were obtained at estate sales and auctions.

    Unfortunately we can't answer this question. This is a new bathroom and it was painted the owners' preferred color; we liked it too, as it is a period appropriate color that complimented the finishes in the historic house.

    Accurate Painting of the Lowcountry
    I would suggest a wizzy roller with a 1/8" nap roller. Apply first with the roller and then immediately back brush. The wizzy roller and a grid for it can fit right inside of a 1 gallon bucket. Start at the top working about 5 boards at a time so you can maintain a wet paint edge. In order to produce a smooth paint finish on wood make sure you clean the nap of your roller by rolling it against sticky side of tape before you begin your project to remove any loose nap. Also filter your paint, pantyhose works great in a pinch. Oftentimes even brand new paint from the store needs to be filtered.

    This type of decision is really a personal preference; if you're working with a designer they would be able to discuss the pros and cons associated with your particular application. If not, a paint rep would also be well versed to discuss this with you. Good luck with your project!

    Those are reproductions and I don't have the information on them. But fixtures like this can easily be found online, these were not unique to this project.

    This painting was already in the owner's possession; all we know is it just looked great hanging there!

      Pop It With ColorThe painted example seen here is a departure from the common white, bringing a fresh, new color to the mix for a comforting effect.

      Ventana Construction LLC added this to Measures of Remodel Success: Bathrooms by the NumbersMay 6, 2013

      50: The number of CFMs (cubic feet per minute of air changes) most codes require as a minimum in bath fans. Getting exactly the right number of CFMs for your bath involves calculating the volume of the room and the length of the ductwork. There are charts available online to help with this calculation. Add some bells and whistles to that fan with timers, humidity-sensing controls and other features.
