If I owned my own place, I'd be all over this. Good luck with the sale!
Thanks Hasselhoff (david??lol) finally someone who knows about this exotic wood....it lays down amazing rich colour and is extremely solid with little flex...not many stores carry this wood because of the expensive nature and the forresting importing problems associated with wood from that region

The wood looks great and the price seems attractive. However, does anyone know how much you'd need to fork out for the actual labour/installation of the flooring once it's bought?

Thanks.

You're probably looking at around an additional $3-5/ft for install, depending on where you go.

Bear in mind, you'll need to have a good (wood) surface to lay this stuff down on - something that'll allow the flooring to lay flat and the nails to grab into.

You can always rent the tools to do the job and do it yourself. It's really not that hard.

Yea if you're in an appartment you'll be installing a wood subfloor. Check out your locatioin before you buy this wood even though it's a really good deal.

I'm surprised no one has taken these off your hands yet, to bad my condo is brand new & already has decent hardwood flooring or else I would have picked these up, definitely very nice flooring better than any flooring you will find in almost all condo's in TO

quack thanks for the bump....I surprised also since I got tons of inquiries before the photos...Its not like Im selling this exotic wood at full retail (about $5.99- up)..its $3.75 a savings of $2.24 s/f PLus no taxes.This is a very conservative estimate also on retail pricing Im sure its alot more..Im not a pro regarding hardwood flooring but compared to our house floors which cost $7.50 s/f these look alot better...
