Flooring


 

We custom mill every flooring order specifically for each customer so that we can provide them with the floor of their dreams. The boards that we harvest from the old barns come in many various widths and lengths, so we offer our flooring in multiple widths and random lengths, unless the customer desires all one width, and/or specific lengths.

Using reclaimed boards that were originally sawn to 1” thickness with a very large circular saw mill, and then left exposed to the elements for 100 yrs or more, allows us to leave a lot of the original patina and saw marks on the surface of the floor plank.  We offer each flooring selection with two options: Rustic and Select.

– Rustic planks retain 50% or more of the original milled surface of the reclaimed board, giving them rich, dark patina and circular saw-marked texture.

– Select planks have all of the original surface removed, revealing the true color and character of the old growth, tight-grained timber.

Both grades will have occasional nail holes, cracks, and wormholes.  We kiln dry all of our lumber before milling to assure proper moisture content and insect treatment.

We typically find oak, pine, poplar, maple, hemlock, and chestnut in the buildings that we deconstruct.  We offer the oak, pine, and chestnut in our single species selections, and we mix these species with the other species to mill our “Mixed Barnwood” selections.

Mixed Flooring

 

American Chestnut, or “wormy chestnut” as it is know, was the predominant species of tree in the Appalachian Forest until the early 1900’s. It was attacked by an Asian blight that killed off most of the species by 1940 or 1950.  The only place to find American Chestnut now is in aging structures that were built before 1940 or so.  We harvest this beautiful, rare wood from these structures so that we can offer it to our customers.

These are current prices for our Antique American Wormy Chestnut T&G Flooring:

5″, 6″, & 7″ wide

Select Rustic Wormy Chestnut

chestnut wall & barnwood ceiling

This is all ¾” thick, solid T&G plank flooring, with lengths up to 14’. We do offer wider widths, thicker boards, all one width, and/or specific lengths for additional costs.

We kiln dry all of our reclaimed lumber before milling it into flooring to assure there are no problems with insects or moisture content.

 

We also offer custom installation of our Antique Reclaimed Wood Flooring.

There are several options of finish that we can offer you from oil-based polyurethane to natural, no VOC oils with or without color added.

We recommend the use of a square buff vibratory sander to sand these floors instead of a traditional drum sander. This allows you to smooth out the roughness and retain the patina color and saw-mark texture.
