In a previous question about putting wood on the walls, the builder responded to say that it costs about 4x as much to do wood planks instead of drywall. This would likely apply to the ceiling, as well.

dhrohrer - an update to your question from last November - I've just learned that the "inner surround" closest to the firebox is from Eldorado Stone, while the "outer" surround is a wood surround custom crafted by the builder.

I always have and we get a better finish. But there are some new water based products out from Sherwin Williams that we are starting to try. Oil is tough to work with and can yellow over time

Yes. Wood planks are about 4 times the cost of sheetrock installed.

John is the builder of this house, and many other fine homes. The cost factor he provides is a great figure for planning purposes.

I believe SW Pearly White is used in most of the rooms in this house. You can find the resource article on Southern Living for this Idea House.

We are an architecture firm and I don't feel like we are the best to answer that question. I would check with local landscape/hardscape firms.

I'm afraid I can't answer your question. We are the architects and did not select the plants or furnishings. I checked the Resource Guide for the home and I don't see any indication of the plant type.

Thank you for your question. The ceiling is detailed with wood planks. The ceiling height is 9'-4", a bit unusual since this was the renovation of an old home.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Lessons in Living Comfortably: Embrace the Scratches and Dents
Ever so discreetly, timeworn furniture hints at history. I wonder if this primitive table came out of Grandpa's barn or served in Great-Aunt Martha's kitchen during the Depression. In reality, it may have fallen off the back of a truck last week, or been a fantastic garage sale find. Whatever its origin, the dents and scratches make me curious.
Mitchell Parker added this to Photos of 2013: The Most Popular Farmhouse Spaces

Janell Beals - House of Fifty added this to Embrace a Few Beautifully Weathered Surfaces for a Happy, Durable Home
Weathered furniture looks appropriate in both cottage-style homes and tailored and sophisticated spaces. And if you’d like to layer area rugs over those durable floor options, consider sisal, sea grass or jute, which contribute warmth and texture while being durable and stain resistant.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty added this to What to Do With That Fireplace You’re Not Using
A more unexpected approach to placing logs in a unused firebox is to tuck in a basket filled with bundles of cut firewood.
Becky Harris added this to 12 Farmhouse Touches That Bring Homeyness to the Living Room
9. A rustic table. A smaller farm table can work well as a sofa table or library table in a living room. Smaller versions inspired by farm tables make good coffee tables in a farmhouse living room as well.
