A prefinished longstrip engineered floor from Harris Tarkett was selected by This Old House homeowners Kim Whittemore and Bruce Leasure to update their 1922 Colonial revival house in Winchester, Mass. The home, which is the first This Old House renovation project of season 24, is in the midst of a complete makeover on the television program.

As part of the renovation, Harris Tarkett's American Collection in Yukon Oak Toast was installed in the kitchen, pantry and master suite, according to Bill Clossin, vice president of marketing, Harris Tarkett.

During the segment on the master suite installation, master carpenter Norm Abram and flooring contractor Patrick Hunt explain the construction of engineered products, the floating installation method and the advantages of this type of floor for a radiant heat installation. Hunt also reviews the advantages of Harris Tarkett's tough, yet easy-care Alumide enhanced aluminum oxide finish, according to Harris Tarkett.

The installation will be featured in segment #2216 of This Old House, which will premiere on PBS in prime time Thursday, January 23, 2003, in the first half of The New This Old House Hour (check local listings).
