1st Place Winner – Sande is excited about her new Mocha Fossilized® Eucalyptus Flooring.
*Won with 80 ‘likes’ and comments
CB: What drew you to bamboo?
Sande: We wanted a floating floor that was a solid material not just a thin layer of good material or, an image of wood, laminated to particle board. Cali Bamboo had the highest quality bamboo (and eucalyptus) flooring we could find. The mocha stained eucalyptus flooring was also the most beautiful flooring we have seen.
CB: What is unique about your project?
Sande: We installed three rooms of flooring-the foyer, dining and family room-in 4 days. We were tired but the process was straight forward and there was very little waste.
CB: What other ways do you stay green?
Sande: We live by the words, ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’. We are re-using the dining room’s old laminate flooring in our closets. When we renovate a room we carefully remove fixtures and donate them to Habitat for Humanity. We compost and recycle so much that people ask if we’re from California. Or Austin. (We consider it a compliment.)
CB: If you win, what will you build with your Cali Bamboo credit?
Sande: If we won, we would definitely buy eucalyptus quarter round to put the finishing touch on our beautiful floors!
