Don't Be Square
Piedmont at one time had the highest concentration of millionaires in the country. That explains why the original owners spared no expense on the hardwood floors of this 1920’s estate. The King’s Craftsmen was hired to recreate this very unique original floor for the newly remodeled kitchen and nook. Our crew drilled and plugged over 3,000 plugs into this floor one-by-one. With the butt joints of the planks cut on site at odd and sometimes striking angles, this floor proves that it is definitely not hip to be square!
This 3” wide Oak floor is about as USA as baseball and apple pie. We did this project while the homeowners were away. The family came home to new floors and everything put back in its place.
This Lafayette homeowner wanted to add some hardwood in the master bedroom and brighten up the original Oak strip flooring with a sand, stain and refinish. The previous color was stained a dark color close to the Cherry cabinets. The desired color was a wheatish color without looking too golden to add some contrast. A high durability coating was applied to add extra protection against the scratching of the family dog.
The carpet job in the bedrooms went well with the husband and wife each choosing their own favorite carpet for the bedrooms.
After fifteen years of living on a pretty standard looking 3-1/4” wide solid Oak floor, these Pleasant Hill homeowners were looking for a whole new look to compliment their newly remodeled kitchen.

Before you knew it we were installing this heavily wire brushed Oak with on their floor as well.

Sitting on the hilltop, this Alamo home has grand views of the entire 680 corridor. After choosing a sample from our store the homeowner called me in for the contract signing and said “I chose you because I think you’ll do a better job”. This trust is something that we take seriously; we must follow through. About 2,500sf of this wide plank flooring was installed with custom steps made by our crew.
This rich brown American style floor replaces an Australian Eucalyptus floor that was installed in the 90s. When Brian first walked the job, he saw a wooden cover tacked on in the middle of the riser on the bottom step. This cover was to conceal a seam between the off-the-shelf stair parts. Brian suggested that the bottom eleven foot long riser be made of a one piece veneer. It is not easy to find a veneer this long. We sourced the materials from Indiana and had it applied by vacuum press with the help of Roger’s Cabinet Shop. There is a big difference in the appearance of this staircase when changed from quick and easy stock to cutsom craftsmanship.
Once a farmhouse, this original Concord home still has plenty of country charm. The homeowner wanted to cover the original Douglas Fir floors that had been painted a few times over with something that would be more scratch resistant to the claws of her dogs, while having the apperance of an original floor.

This old timer has seen a lot of changes in Berkeley over the years. But some things are not so quick to change. With its hand-hewn beams, wood paneling, and lead glass windows, this cabin remains a true rustic original. The King’s Craftsmen was hired to preserve and refinish the original Fir floors. Repairs were made from original flooring that was salvaged from another part of the home. The homeowner wanted a more contemporary color to blend contemporary and rustic styles. This home, after many years of enjoyment for the family, was put up for sale. These floors should offer many more years of use for the new owners.
It was an honor to be chosen to install new floors in the home wood shop that produces some of the finest wood work in the area. Wide plank floors were glued down to the concrete, then sanded, stained and coated with a natural oil finish.
Our crew really enjoyed this project. We knew that these guys would be tough customers. But the owner was so happy with the quality of our work that he posted a 5-star review for us when it was all done. We appreciate it!
The golden brown tones of this Oak floor enhance the old world feel of this Lafayette Spanish home. Our crews took great care in the prep work, hanging plastic sheeting, to protect the rest of the home from dust while working in this entry with such lofty ceilings.
Trends come and go. But one look that has remained popular through them all is Honey Oak. This homeowner said “I know everyone is going for these modern looks, but I’ve always liked Honey Oak. I don’t want to change now.” So we did this time-tested favorite and it turned out great!

While wood bending is an ancient skill, floor shops with this level of craftsmanship these days is rare. Most approch this type of radius by cutting and gluing straight pieces together, resulting in a pieced up look. Notice how the grain of the wood follows the curve as if the board was taken from a bent tree.
The floors in this Danville home were looking a little tired, but the wood was in good shape. A perfect time to freshen them up with a sand, stain, and refinish.
