showcase the unique character of reclaimed lumber.
Flooring offers the ideal application to feature the historical markings and special qualities of reclaimed lumber.
Our flooring is just like other heirloom furniture, made from solid wood (rather than engineered veneer) and meant to endure for generations, growing richer with time. We can accommodate various widths and textures to complete your design aesthetic. The expansive canvas of a floor provides the perfect opportunity to showcase our various antique lumber options.
Like the 19th century barns from which these timbers were salvaged, our hardwood blend contains a mix of beech, hickory, maple, red oak, white oak, and other hardwoods. Early farmers used the logs felled onsite, regardless of species. We, too, have embraced that resourcefulness with this blend for a durable and unique flooring choice.
Formerly used in the framework to support our nation’s old factories and mills, this strong and durable lumber lends a warm amber hue. It has a tight grain, the hardness rating of red oak, and high resin content, making it a good choice for flooring.
American chestnut trees were once a dominant hardwood species in North America, until the chestnut blight decimated the population to very near extinction in the early 1900’s (fewer than 100 trees remain). While efforts remain to bring back a blight-resistant variant of this magnificent tree, the only source of chestnut lumber is reclaimed. The rich brown in chestnut makes for a stunning floor with a dramatic history.
