hardwood flooring for new construction help please!!!

12 years ago

We are building a new home in wyoming. The majority of the home (excluding bathrooms/laundry) will be hardwood. My husband was dead set on brazilian cherry and I think I have finally convinced him otherwise. Now I don't know what to do instead. It has to be a real - not engineered or prefinished floor - wood floor. Although most advice seems to go with a prefinished my husband is adamant on finishing the floor himself as he claims the microbevels will drive him insane (I don't notice them so it wouldn't be an issue for me). We are doing a more contemporary style house and with 3 kids, 3 dogs, 3 cats I'd like to have a medium color flooring to hide dirt, fur etc. I like the look of wider floors. Has anyone done a non-exotic (I'm worried about keeping the humidity right in this drier climate) floor that they love and are willing to share pictures? Please help before I loose my mind!!!
