Our last container has arrived ...

          It's always an exciting time at The Good House when a new shipment arrives. The quality of the goods our overseas suppliers keep producing never ceases to amaze us. This time the cargo is a mix of floor boards, stair treads and balustrades, and internal doors, the whole of it in French oak of the highest grade.

Solid French oak wide boards

          The flooring is a batch of custom made solid oak 220 mm wide boards in random length up to 5 meters. Given the exceptional length , the boards were packed loose in the container, and the 500 m2 of oak floor are filling up the storage with the unmistakable fragrance of solid oak !

Solid oak stair treads, balustrades and posts

          TGH routinely supplies stair treads and risers, however the components for this particular project are truly impressive in their size: the stair treads are 2.5m long, 300mm wide and 50mm thick. As for the posts they are simply massive: 250x250mm, and up to 4m long... all in certified French oak ...!

Details of the treads and balustrades

          Treads and balustrade components have pencil round edges, and all treads are made of a single, 300mm wide piece of solid oak !
          As for the doors, they truly deserve a post of their own, that we will publish very soon ... !

Beautiful things come in small package ... again at The Good House ...

          In the older part of Armadale, designer Sarah Healy has crafted a love nest that includes all the ingredients and tricks a place can use to keep you inside, no matter how loud the outer world is calling for you.

          At The Good House, we truly enjoy cooperating in projects where only the best can do. Our Chevron parquet was factory finished in a medium walnut stained oil, and got a final coat of clear oil on site to provide that subtle sheen one would expect from genuine French oak flooring and furniture.

          The chevron blades were custom made to fit the width of the hallway leading to the kitchen / living open space. Our service includes providing a CAD drawing of the layout, so as to minimize waste and ensure the client is happy with the pattern, its general direction and the possible use of borders.
