I LOVE the artwork over the sofa. Who is the artist or where can I buy this?

    Hi masnis,
    It's furniture that was already owned by our client; we don't have that information.

    Thank you!

    Emily, I just purchased a box of the "half chromes" from Amazon. I'm pretty sure there is still plenty to be had

    upholstered fabric covered panels can be hung just slightly below the beams for a really cool hip look. I see it done all the time in commercial building where all the ducts and wiring is exposed above. Especially in restaurants. It helps hide the framework which can be unsightly as well as add a sound barrier and help with insulation.

    Do you have carpeting with thick padding on the floor above to absorb sound?

    hi there - who makes the light fixtures for the mirrored bulbs?
  • ski4life

    You can get similar light fixtures at most hardware stores for < $2. Chrome tip bulbs are simple to find as well.

    The floor is a Ceramic Tile, 12x24 Exhibition Grey from Dal Tile. Thanks for your inquiry.

    One of the simplest way to warm your existing concrete floors is to cover them with ceramic tile over an electric heat mat. You will probably want to level the floor anyhow since most garage floors slope. Hope that helps.

    We had the ceiling sprayed by our painters. One of the keys to making this work is cleaning and sanding the years of built-up grime from the sub-floor and joists. This is a relatively labor intensive process. Thanks for your inquiry.

How tall is the ceiling? Thank you.

  • mt1652

    Do you know if building code considers the height between joists in an application with exposed joists like this, or do they look at the height to the underside of the joists? We have a basement that is slightly less than the 7' minimum and I was thinking leaving the joists exposed could potentially help us meet the code.

  • davidneham

    Curious about above as well. Did you get an answer somewhere else mt1652? Our ceiling is 6'-10" at the underside of the joists, but 7'-6" to the underside of the subfloor.

    The open joists really accentuate the head height in a low space. We were able to achieve this open look because we are a single family dwelling. Thanks for your inquiry.

    Electric heat mats are a great way to add heating to a space without taking up a lot of room with bulky heaters. To answer your question, you should expect to loose anywhere between 1/2" to 1 1/4" depending on the material used. Please remember that you need 7'-0" ceiling heights in most jurisdictions for habitable space. Thanks for your inquiry.

    The couch really adds to the colorful touch to the room, especially when it's set against the white walls. Unfortunately, the Owner's had the couch in their possession prior to the renovation and we don't have any of the details for this item. Good luck in your search and thanks for your interest.

    The wood is horizontal birch plywood that has been cut down to 1x3 dimensions. It's warm light color adds to the modern feel of the space without making it too stark. Thank your for your interest in our work.

How do you insulate ceiling for sound? Thanks

  • PRO
    Wentworth, Inc.

    Sound transmission is important between spaces. In this project our client's did not require any sound dampening, so there is none. To achieve some form of sound proofing, the appearance would need to be modified or insulation added above what is seen in the image. Thank you for your interest in our work.
