Henry Island rustic-bathroom
 

Henry Island

This project occupies a low ridge at the tip of a small island and is flanked by a beach to either side. The two beaches suggested the image of the two-faced god Janus who was the inspiration for the design. The house is flanked by two large porches, one facing either beach, which offer shelter from the elements while inviting the visitors outdoors. Three buildings are linked together to form a string of buildings that follow the terrain. Massive concrete columns lend strength and support while becoming part of the language of the forest in which the house is situated. Salvaged wood forms the majority of the interior structure and the floors. Light is introduced deep into the house through doors, windows, clerestories, and dormer windows. The house is organized along two long enfilades that order space and invite long views through the building and to the landscape beyond.

wood flooring?! - Is this look done with linoleum? Where would I be able to see samples or who carries this in the New York area?!

The flooring in this home is real wood flooring. We are not sure where to look for a linoleum alternative in the New York area. Best of luck with your project!

Wood planks sizes - When using wood planks on ceiling walls and floors, is there a rule of thumb for width of planks? We want wider planks on floor and narrow ones on ceiling - like the ceiling in this photo, but not sure about walls. Thanks.

If you like this look, copy the photo. To me, it is too many planks in one area.

The floors are gorgeous, but when choosing flooring for bathroom, kitchen, laundry room should I be concerned about water warping the boards or mildewing? Is there a certain sealer you can coat them with to prevent that?

I also have old (100 + years) pine floors in my kitchen which have been slightly sanded as to not remove lots of the character, and refinished with heavy duty poly and not only do they look amazing, but they are easy to clean. No problems with anything. Looks so great with clean white.

I was reading the information about this project and it turns out that the wood on the floors is salvaged. It is remniscent to a wide planked pumpkin floor. Wide planked, and very rich color, no artist could stain it to look like this no matter how skilled. The look is achieved over time. Luckily, there are many salvaged wood suppliers! Here are some links regarding pumpkin floors, made from pine, aged for centuries :
http://www.binghamlumber.com/reclaimed-pumpkin-pine.php http://www.wideplankflooring.com/our-wood-our-craft/stain/category/plymouth-pumpkin/

Surrounded by beautiful landscapes and luminous pine trees, the settlers that first landed at Plymouth Rock from the Mayflower were faced with challenges and new beginnings. Upon their arrival the settlers immediately set to work realizing there was much to do to ensure their survival. Building a homestead was critical; utilizing the abundant resources of the land was the only way to fulfill that goal. For their timber needs, there was no better material to use than
the pine trees that embellished the countryside they were settling. The first homes built in America contained wide plank floors constructed of robust Eastern White Pine, a wood rich in shades of golden, pumpkin tones.

Some of those original houses still exist today and the floors have maintained their quality and durability over hundreds of years. The deep pumpkin hues that develop during that time, signal that the floors are original to the home.

what pre constructed flooring can be put on concrete?

rknight, You can float engineeered, laminate and real wood "click-type" flooring on concrete with an underlayment pad. You can also glue to concrete if the concrete passes moisture tests. We are looking at a product (available at a big name Home Improvement store) called SuperFast Solid. There are only two colors but it seems to be decent quality. Good Luck.

This is a great question. Engineered flooring can be glued down over concrete. There are several glues that also serve as moisture barriers. As mentioned make sure your concrete passes moisture inspection.
