Dunlin Shore by Balandra Development

Posted on February 28, 2012 by Jared




We’re proud to be part of one of Richmond’s most anticipated and recently completed green homes!

The Dunlin Shore by Balandra Development is located on Richmond’s west waterfront and has gorgeous views of Sturgeon Banks. The beautifully designed 3,400 square foot home features a variety of building technologies and products that make it one of the most energy efficient homes in the Lower Mainland – including environmentally friendly flooring by The Eco Floor Store.

In the main living area, we supplied and installed over 1,300 square feet of our popular FSC Certified Ernest Hemingway ® engineered hardwood floors. The Dunlin Shore’s interior designers selected the colour San Cristobal in the Old Havana Collection, an elegant dark-stained maple with 4 ¾” wide planks, artisan hand scraped finishing and pillowed edges.

In addition to being FSC Certified, Ernest Hemingway floors also:

+ qualify for LEED™ credits

+ are C.A.R.B Certified

+ and comply with the Lacey Act.

The Eco Floor Store also supplied and installed flooring for the staircase in the great room. They feature custom white risers with subtle recessed lighting every few steps. In the 550 square foot garage, we supplied and installed Pro-Garage flooring.

The Dunlin Shore is aiming for Platinum Level 82 EnerGuide rating. Read about all of the other green features of the home here.
