Lakeside Home with Moisture-Resistant Hardwood Floor

Floors with Function and Beauty for this Gorgeous Contemporary Home

A beautiful home deserves a beautiful, solid foundation. The custom Rock color on the smooth-faced Vintage French Oak® will stand the test of time with our engineered Moisture-Resistant-Platform – crucial in a lakeside community. The Hardwax Oil finish ensures simple maintenance and future rejuvenation without sanding.

The Dutch-Haus® Wide Plank MRP® Hardwood Flooring comes on an exceptionally stable, engineered platform that offers outstanding performance in homes near bodies of water. The 16-layer Baltic birch platform resists drastic changes due to humidity and moisture fluctuations, even when they occur on a daily basis. Although we always recommend that liquids be cleaned off a hardwood floor as soon as they’re discovered, we expect the MRP® to withstand permanent damage from moisture exposure. Given enough time to naturally dry after being soaked, the flooring will usually return to its original shape. This dependability offers peace of mind in a newly built lake shore home.










As is often done with bespoke Signature projects, this floor was finished with four coats of Hardwax Oil. We love it and recommend it because it’s a natural product, stemming from hundreds of years of European traditions. It’s a non-toxic product that is absorbed by the hardwood to create a tough, deeply penetrating bond. The color lasts longer, and the finish can easily be renewed after years of use and abuse by simple reapplication. Sanding is never needed – that means no saw dust pollution and less hassle.

The Rock color was custom designed for this contemporary waterfront property. Lake Michigan is a powerful force of nature. The wide planks and long lengths, crafted in this serene shade, flow with the lake’s moods while creating a calm, supportive base to ground the residence.
