Saint Colme Street - Edinburgh

Exclusive wooden floors - Long lasting quality!  











In March, 2013 - Origin Direct commenced a large scale project in Edinburgh. 

The project involved the basement and ground floor rooms of this stunning town house within the Scottish Capital.  The complexity meant that we spent nearly three weeks carrying out this project. 

Within the basement, the true age of the house was shown with the unevenness of the subfloor which meant a full screed and liquid DPM prior to installing a long plank natural oak floor.

The ground floor was where the complex work really took place.  A Fumed Oak, large block parquet floor was installed in a Herringbone format in the Lounge and combination pattern in the hallway.  The existing floor boards were covered with plywood to enable us to adhere the blocks.  The client wanted a framed herringbone floor which in normal circumstances, would have been fine but again, the age of the property shone through with the room being over 100mm out of square. 

This was a very testing but also, very rewarding project of which both the client and ourselves are impressed with the results.
