When customers stop by the shop I ask them to imagine the mood you want from this space. If it is the feeling and character of an old farmhouse, a colonial period home, a southwestern ranch or even an old New York loft, theyíve come to the right place. We donít do perfect, polished flooring. Our floors have the style and character that years of living add to the planks.
The choices you make (Wood species, edge treatment, level of surface texture and distressing, and finish options) will determine the look, feel and mood of your finished floor.
Old World Charm - Great Value!
100% Made in Pennsylvania Every hand crafted plank goes through 10 woodworking steps, some using traditional hand tools. We match each plank against a master plank to check for fit, edging and straightness so you can be sure they will fit together perfectly. We add just enough distressing and we pay attention to details like matching custom thresholds and authentic 18th century style nails color-matched to the floor.
Your material choices for your planking are defined by these three elements:
We start with the best kiln dried solid hardwood lumber from Pennsylvania and surrounding states supplied to us by a company that has been in the business since 1915! Our unique hand cut plank floors are characterized by long boards (up to 13 feet, average 9 feet) of solid hardwood with amazing hand cut texture and beautiful hand rubbed finishes.
We predominantly work with two plank species because they were commonly used in early American homes and are still available locally in abundant quantity and high quality.
- We do have other species available including rustic cherry, rustic hickory, wormy red oak, walnut and poplar (poplar is great for painted flooring). Let us know if these are of interest to you and we will prepare a quote based on current market prices for the material.
Each is characterized by long boards (4 to 13 ft, average about 9 ft). Widths range from 5.75 to 10.75 inches (actual face widths). Each style is hand crafted and hand finished with you choice of stains and top coats.
Edge Treatments We offer three quite different edging styles that really change the character of the floor and can be applied to any species:
For a more rustic, aged style extra distressing can be applied to any of our planks in the form
of circular saw marks, band saw marks, worm holes and deeper brushing.
There is no charge for extra distressing.
How much is up to you, your taste and imagination. The best instruction I ever heard from a customer re distressing was " Do it until you are ashamed!" We did and they looked great.
Most customers who want distressing go with 15% to 25% of the planks will
have some saw marks etc.
