Reclaimed old growth timber is beautiful, environmentally friendly and finite in supply. So mills specializing in resurrecting industrial and water-submerged logs has found a way to stretch the availability of this unique wood.

This gorgeous antique floor is made from engineered planks. One-eighth inch slices of antique pine is laminated to a solid 7-layer plywood base. It's then sanded and pre-finished with a clear aluminum-oxide polyurethane.

The boards are tongue and grooved on all four sides and can be nailed or glued down. The plywood base makes it suitable for use on concrete slab on or below grade or on a raised foundation.

All in all, not a bad re-use of what likely started out as a structural beam in a pre-1925 building.

Shown here is prefinished brown reclaimed pine. Boards are 7-1/2" wide and random lengths of one to seven feet.

Cost is about $6 a square foot, which is competitive with higher end offerings at big box stores.
