The project included new controlled lighting design and automation. Structural steel fabrication to remove all supporting walls and posts on the first floor. Custom doors and hidden hinges detailed out with 1/4 reveals around the doors meeting the floors. We removed door trim and baseboards. Precision sheetrock details and custom wide plank oak floors make this spectacular home feel warm and cozy.
Nothing compares to having a beautiful wide plank flooring in your home.
The home improvement project consisted of simple new floors and stairs and a few lights. It just happens that the client wanted the walls removed and the stairs relocated. Further complicated by 4th-floor location and no freight elevator.
This meant working with local architect Robert Fowler to detail out the structural framing, design, and details to create a beautiful loft gallery space.
Prior to installation, we reached out to the experts @carlislewideplankfloors. They truly understand what it takes to handcraft a floor that was worthy of the ultimate in urban living!
Samples of their engineered wood flooring were mailed and we had a choice of several colors. We tested them day and night in sun and in shadows. Once we had an idea of how this hardwood floors installation would look we ordered a few larger pieces. Solid hardwood flooring samples were also tested for thresholds and transitions.
The client was so happy with the product they increased the square footage and added more rooms to our scope of work.
One tip that was very important for a high-end job using this type of flooring is to lay out the boards ahead of time so you can look for color and wood grain to match. Engineered hardwood floors are a natural product and you will get some variation. Take your time and do the job correctly the first time.
We love this type of wood product and look forward to using them again on other projects.
