    The dark anodized aluminum framed Gerkin Rhino windows look great with this floor.

    Rift Sawn White Oak cabinets and Carrera Marble counter tops complement the Mesquite floors well!

    The Mesquite stairs are stunning, and the metal work is pretty spectacular too!

I am a huge fan of hardwood floors. I think that a true hardwood floor that's been sanded and finished onsite is the best choice for a floor inside a custom home. I've remodeled a lot of houses and re-used their 100 year old flooring, there isn't any other floor choice I can think of that would be saved and reused 100 years in the future. The most common choice for hardwoods in the houses I build has been White Oak, so when I found out the Architect (Scott Ginder with Dick Clark Architects) had specified Mesquite; I knew I needed to video the process.

Here's a link to the Hygrometer shown in the video that we use to monitor humidity.

And this is my favorite job site dehumidifier the Quest Powerdry 4000 Pro that we use to control job site humidity.

Lastly, a big thanks to Hardwood Designs who supplied, sanded, and finished this floor! Amazing work guys!
