Mansion Hill Custom Floors Coowners

Jeff Rose & Bill Walz, Co-Owners, Mansion Hill Custom Floors

What does your firm do?

We are a custom woodhouse, meaning we specialize in one-of-a-kind, unique custom wood flooring and wall-treatments that you won’t find anywhere else.

How did you get into this field?

Jeff: I started sanding floors at a local company to kill time after I got out of the Navy, before I planned to go to college with my GI Bill in the fall. I found a passion in wood flooring. I also met my partner Bill at that same company. Needless to say, I never made it to college, and Bill and I teamed up and went out on our own in 2011 and we’ve been growing and expanding for the last 9+ years!

Bill: I applied for a job when I was 19 with Schumacher, he called me back a year later and what started as a job turned into my career. That is where I met my business partner Jeff Rose and the story is history.

How does your firm work with architects?

Our main clientele are Architects and Interior Designers. We want to be a trusted resource for the Architectural community, that means making sure our Architect partners have the proper applications and processes in place to make sure that their clients get a superior and functional product. We also serve the Architectural community by providing CEU trainings, all of which count as HSW credits for AIA members.

Who or what inspires you?

Jeff: Creativity is what inspires me. To take a client’s vision and bring it to life is what I’m passionate about.

Bill: My family. I work hard so I can provide the best life for them.

What is your favorite building and why?

Jeff: Le Château Frontenac in Québec, Canada, built in 1893. A little note about this historic building, in 1943 it was the site of secret meetings between Winston Churchill, and Franklin D. Roosevelt to devise invasion plans to end WWII. I love it for its breathtaking architectural design and the attention to detail, including all of the rift and quartered oak in the lobby which is stunning.

Bill: Union Terminal, because of its unique design and historical importance in the tri-state area.

When you’re not working, what do you love to do?

Jeff: I like to golf, work in my garden, and listen to live music.

Bill: When I’m not working, I love going camping, hiking, fishing, being out in nature, and enjoying good food and drinks with my lovely wife and family.
