Character White Oak Flooring in Lake House

Candlewood Lake 010

This home sits on its own point overlooking Candlewood Lake in Western Connecticut. Beautifully built and situated, they chose a very wide plain Character White Oak floor. With it’s natural oil base polyurethane finish, all knots and characteristics of the wood show through. This was truly a spectacular project.

This beautiful custom timber frame home overlooking Lake Waramaug and the Litchfield hills is a great example of the use of a wide plank character floor.  Staining the floor a darker color helped to create a uniform color, but also allowed the knots and imperfections of a character grade floor to show through.  This is perfect for a casual weekend home in the country.
