The Great Room

A combination living room, dining room, and kitchen, the big problem with it is that it's not very energy efficient, but it is a simple, open arrangement that I like very much. The large beams you see are actually just Glu-Lams© that have been roughed up be dragging a chain saw over them and then giving them a rough sanding. Similarly, the paneling used for the ceiling is the same exterior siding used in the study. Cheap, and no one ever gets close enough to scrutinize it anyway.
