When one utters the word renovation, what comes to your mind?As per the consensus carried out lately, many think of extravagant exaltations: stonework countertops, utilizations of stainless steel and comprehensive stairways are what we generally think of (from what we witness daily on the media).
The truth of the matter is, endless creativity has made a turning point to nearly all home renovations. The effects of this creativity are being noted by many as homes are quickly going natural day by day.
As a matter of fact, I have seen millions of eye catching items that one can use to renovate his house so that it can look pleasing to all. Despite that, this is the first time I’m learning that wooden discs can be used to renovate a floor.
This made me think of renovating the lobby of my house with the same material; wooden discs.
Don’t you think that it will look good since it’s more of art that the renovation we are used to? If your thoughts are similar to mine, please get us briefed by leaving your comments below!

Across the nation, a very unique — and very beautiful — renovation technique is taking homes by storm. Though this special technique dates back thousands of years, more and more houses around the world have begun to bring it back into fashion.
Called “cordwood construction,” this technique uses debarked logs — either found naturally or cut from logged trees — that are stacked and mortared.
In this particular home, cordwood was used to give their yucky concrete floor a beautiful, all-natural makeover. They started by sweeping and mopping, then planning out the arrangement of their wooden discs.
The wood they used was legally gathered from their state forest. The trees — “Shaggy Bark Juniper” and “Alligator Bark Juniper” — had died and fallen naturally.
After running each piece through the chop saw (set at 1″), they sanded the discs down and glued them directly to the floor.
After setting each piece, they firmly tamped them to ensure they were on good and tight.
Soon, they entire floor was covered in the beautiful cordwood.
When it was time, they applied a light coat of polyurethane to the surface of the disks. They did this to prevent the grout from adhering to the tops.
Finally, after grouting the spaces and applying more coats of polyurethane, their stunning floor was complete. I love how warm and natural it looks, don’t you? Would you like to have this in your home? Let us know in the comments below!
