  1. Hi,

    I would like to know what type of cedar paneling was used in the bathroom in picture. Was it actual planks, 1/4 inch paneling, or something else?

    Thanks
    Tye

  2. Really like the look of your home. Especially the bathroom. I live in Alaska and it looks awfully nice this time of year. Curious if you have any plans available.
