Reclaimed Flooring: What Lies Beneath

Reviewed by:

Want a floor just like the floor that George Washington walked on in his Mount Vernon home?

Recovered from riverbeds and canals in the south, this original growth longleaf heart pine was harvested in the 1800s and transported via waterways. During transport, some of the logs rolled off their rafts and sunk to the river bottom. Today, these logs, ranging in age from 200 - 500 years old, are recovered, air dried (which takes several weeks), then kiln dried and finally milled into planks for flooring.

Corresponding trim, paneling, stair parts, mantels and other lumber items are also offered.
