About the Project

Located at the very end of the Overseas Highway in northern Key West, this bayside private residence included reSAWN’s NEWPORT black walnut flooring and stair treads. A cement driveway surround and raised first floor give the exterior a classic beach house aesthetic. The interior is designed around an open floor plan with living room, dining room, and kitchen in one area. With NEWPORT black walnut flooring on both the main floor and top floor, the homeowners included custom designed black walnut stair treads to connect the two floors.

The home is set up to take advantage of the favorable Florida weather. On the main floor, large sliding doors merge interior with exterior through an expansive porch with a lounge area and a reclaimed wood table. Additionally, the first level has a dock on the bay, a small pool, and a covered play area. Noteworthy for its simple aesthetic of white walls and wood accents, the hallway and guest room allow for ample light to spill onto the NEWPORT black walnut flooring. The master bedroom has a simple aesthetic similar to that of the entire house–white walls and black walnut–but its greatest feature is a small, private balcony that overlooks the yard and other bay front homes.

NEWPORT features plain sawn select grade American Black Walnut pre-finished with hardwax oil for flooring or wall cladding.

American Black Walnut is a heavy, strong wood defined by its rich deep browns and beautiful figure. PLAIN SAWN boards are produced by cutting tangentially to a tree’s growth rings producing the familiar “cathedral” or “flame” pattern on the board face.  The annual growth rings are generally at a 0° – 30° angle to the face of the board.

The grain pattern of black walnut is mostly straight and open, but some boards have burled or curly grain. Our hardwax oil is natural, non-toxic and 100% VOC-free and produces a durable, matte finish that respects the natural look and feel of the wood.

reSAWN’s WALNUT offering includes wide plank north american black walnut wood flooring & interior wall cladding that is pre-finished and available in solid & engineered construction.  These designs emphasize the natural color & beauty of black walnut.  All designs are available as FSC ® upon request.
