What Houzz contributors are saying:
Kasey the Yorkshire terrier doesn’t seem to realize how lucky he is to run around in this Cape Cod, Massachusetts, beach house. Slim steel support beams encased in coffered ceiling moldings replaced the original home’s much larger wooden beams.
The couple loves having guests stay over, so they designed a spacious main floor that would fit the way they live and entertain. Slim steel support beams encased in coffered ceiling moldings replaced the original home's much larger wooden beams. The design — inspired by a photo on Houzz — integrates the coffered ceiling with the fireplace, resulting in a shallower floor structure and a height gain of 6 inches.
