Recycled Heart Rimu – Martinborough Home

Home/Recycled Heart Rimu – Martinborough Home

Timber: New flooring from recycled Heart Rimu – 135mm x 19mm boards. 

Details: A new home built next to the golf course in Martinborough. Our clients had retired from farming and had kept some old bridge beams. The beams were used to hold up a mezzanine floor, and worked perfectly with the recycled flooring. The substrate is concrete. We gave the concrete a skim grind and applied Selleys’ Liquid Nails Vapour Barrier. The flooring was glued to the concrete using Selleys Liquid Nails Direct Stick flooring adhesive. The nail-hole character was enhanced with black filler, to highlight the character features in the floor. The floor was finished with three coats of moisture-cured polyurethane.

Unique Aspects: Recycled flooring in a new home. It worked brilliantly, and along with the bridge beams provided a homely feel in a lovely new home on a great site.
