Concrete is not the first material you think of for your living room. In cases where a house is built directly on a slab, most homeowners opt for wood flooring or carpeting to cover up the dull grey material. This incredible material doesn't have to be the ugly duckling, however. Because of its properties, it can be finished in many beautiful, durable ways. All it takes is someone who knows what they're doing and a litte elbow grease to get a concrete floor that puts other flooring materials to shame.
This particular project is a happy medium. All the warmth and style of a gorgeous, wide-plank wood floor, with the resilience of one of mankind's greatest inventions. Not only that, but watching it get made is a pretty beautiful thing.
