Taking on a DIY Project? Let Goodwin Help!

Not all of our clients are building design professionals or installers.  We have several clients who take on do-it-yourself (DIY) projects such as installing antique wood flooring and feature walls.  The technical experts at Goodwin are always happy to provide guidance to our DIY clients.  Take a look at this gorgeous River-Recovered® Heart Pine Character flooring Mr. and Mrs. Nate Sutrick installed in their century old home in Milton, Florida:

According to the Sutrick’s, the home originally had a heart pine floor.  When they purchased it, the flooring consisted of plywood nailed to joists.  They searched the United States to find just the right flooring to install into their dream home.  They ended up sourcing their wood flooring from Goodwin after visiting the showroom and experiencing the wood up close.  They ordered 1001sf of 3-1/4″ River-Recovered® Heart Pine Character tongue and groove flooring along with reducers and “T” moldings. The Sutrick’s installed, sanded and finished the flooring themselves knowing that their friends at Goodwin were just a phone call away.

Coincidently, Milton, Florida is just 2.5 miles from the town of Bagdad, Florida.  Back in 1900, the Bagdad Mill was the single largest economic interest in the state of Florida.  More longleaf lumber left Pensacola Bay for export and domestic sale than any other port in the country.  Today, the site of the Bagdad Mill is a public park.

We enjoy providing guidance to our DIY clients. Special thank you to the Sutrick’s for their very kind words:

“My wife and I purchased a 1920’s house that was in need of some serious TLC. We searched many flooring companies all over the country for flooring that would match the era of our house. On a trip to South Florida we visited the Goodwin Company facility and instantly found the flooring we wanted. The staff at Goodwin Company worked with us to find the flooring that fit our house and our budget – River-Recovered® Heart Pine Character. With the help of the staff at Goodwin Company we were able to install and finish the flooring ourselves. This was our first attempt at installing hard wood flooring and their insight and guidance was second to none. We could not have finished this project without their help.”
