"I really like the craftsman look - wide trim, 'boxy' look"
I was refering to comments about needing to get a molding supply place involved. As for the paint vs. natural wood, it's her time, not yours. If that is what she likes and wants, and is willing to do for herself, I see no point in discouraging that goal.
Also, you are in OK, she is in ID. I am in OR. It is not uncommon here for people to tear out the cheap, painted stuff and put in real wood. Maybe they're doing the opposite in OK, I don't know what the trend is in ID. But trends come and go. If I plan to live in my house for a long time, which I do, I will make things how I like them. The next owner will do the same, I see it quite often. Even Greene & Greene's work was torn out, painted over, etc. by subsequent owners, in time. Can you imagine that?
