Planning Finishes

This week has been spent gathering information and samples for the small cabin of 860 square feet.  I have options for a heart pine floor new and vintage and a brushed finish for the new heart pine.  The logs are cedar and a natural finish will bring out the warm tone similar to that in the heart pine and  a bit of grey like the color of a weathered barn.  The V-groove paneling is pine and will have a finish that is aged somewhat like the color of the heart pine flooring but not as dark.  The paneling will darken with age as will the logs and the floor.

The bathroom is very natural.  The cabin is small so the heart pine flooring will run into the bathroom.  There are several options for shower tiles.  All the selections are ceramic but look like natural stone somewhat like a split granite.  The shower floor options are various colors of pebble tiles and maybe some special swimming fish (I’m excited about the fish tiles).  We are also working on a vanity design and sink and faucets and lighting fixtures.

The kitchen is also in the planning stage.  We are looking at design options, wood species and finishes.  I have posted some kitchen ideas on my Pinterest kitchen board.  There are many ideas and options to explore before final selections are made.  The photo shows a few of the options I have mentioned.DSCN6605
