At last the first of our new 2016 homes in Stonefly is completed! The interior is finished, the model furniture has been put in place, pictures are hung and beds are made. Everything is looking just as beautiful as we had imagined when we first planned the home.
The rich vintage mixed hardwood floors look warm and welcoming. It is so amazing to think that these floors were once part of a 100 year old barn and have been reclaimed and re-purposed to give character and charm to this unique new home. The mix of hard woods include cherry, maple, oak, poplar, chestnut, hickory and beech. These woods were harvested from trees that surrounded the land on which the barn was built all those years ago.
The floors were professionally finished with a very light sanding so that all of the original character such as rotary saw marks still remain. Then a two stage oil finish was given to the floors to bring out the color and protect the finish.
The floors provided our decorator with the color pallet for the entire home. Kitchen cabinets have been stained with a custom mixed gray stain to pick up the gray tones in the floor. Walls are also a soft gray color that makes a prefect backdrop for paintings. Each detail in the home has been carefully selected to give an appearance of sophistication yet still retain the character and charm that is so special in a rustic mountain residence. We welcome you to come visit us in Stonefly and take a look at this newest home.
