Touchstone Project, BC

Challenge

This project posed an interesting challenge because the client was abroad during most of the interior finish selection process for the home making it difficult to communicate with them and provide floor samples. They were building a new custom designed home and needed a hardwood floor that could be installed over radiant in-floor heating. The house is quite modern so it was important to find a wood floor that fit the overall design and atmosphere.

Solution

The customer chose to use European Hardwood Flooring based on our service. We were able to arrange for samples of the hardwood flooring products to be sent to the customer overseas. Through regular communication with the designer and home-builder we were able to communicate with the homeowner and answer any questions they had.

In regards to the floor, they selected Piano 90 Doussie because of its tremendous dimensional stability. The multi-layer marine birch support provides exceptional stability so it can be warranted for use over radiant in-floor heating. The special square edge milling of the boards provides a modern look that was also in keeping with the design of the house.
