We installed a 3/4" solid Patagonian Rosewood floor in our home. A contractor friend helped my husband do it. We laid about 1000 sq. ft. I don't have any really good pictures, but here are a few. The transition between the kitchen and the living room was done on a different direction because the two walls were off so it was easier to do that than shave down some wood at an angle. I love how it turned out and I absolutely LOVE these floors.

Nice! Sure has lot of color doesn't it? It will become richer once it ages.

Thanks for sharing :)

We installed it in May I think so it's already darkened and reddened up a lot. I love it. It's holding up so well to our dogs too (and the kids!). There are a lot of scratches in it, but you don't see them unless you get down and look. And they're all just little surface scratches.

I took some pictures of our new couches and got raves about how beautiful the floor looked :lol: So, I figured I'd come back and post the pictures showing the wood aged about 7 months!

Oh, and here's the engineered Kempas we put upstairs for the kids to destroy. It only cost us $1.75 a sq. ft. and hubby installed it all by himself! We bought one of the staplers that people recommended on my post and it worked wonderfully!
