Words from Our Project Manager:
“This was a fun project. It started by having two semi-trucks loaded with tongue and groove pine dropped off at our shop. This pine got a custom industrial stain along
with 3 coats of lacquer. All the large beams throughout were stained almost black with an industrial stain and then top coated with a water based clear coat. The duct
work was painted to match the tongue and groove on the ceiling. They wanted that to match the pine tongue and groove. The cedar was way to pink/red to try and stain and get the results they were asking for. So, we bleached the cedar twice to get the pink/red out and then proceeded to stain in which it looked color wise identical to the pine. The exterior fir beams were hit twice with a semitransparent finish. We finished some custom sliding barn doors that lead to the patio with a custom stain in the middle and trim around the outside to match the building.”
