Craig Walker Floor – Pollokshields
We were asked by Craig and his Wife Eileen to uplift the hall floor in their beautiful house in Pollokshields. Their hall is typical of leafy Pollokshields and is both substantial and very grand but it had suffered over the years from being lifted for rewiring and plumbing and was a mismatch of different timber species and patched in sections.
Craig’s brief was that the floor was lifted and that a reclaimed Pitch Pine floor, typical of Glasgow, was fitted in its place. The flooring which was sourced was over 100 years old and from a disused Mill in Lancashire. It arrived on site and typical of reclaimed flooring we had to carefully blend the different grains and colours but what was achieved was a nice mix and an absolutely beautiful colour.
The floor was completed with several coats of Polyurethane varnish and we renewed all of the skirting and base blocks to complete the project. Our grateful thanks to Craig for his unerring enthusiasm and attention to detail – both Craig and Eileen have been a joy to work for.
