Reclaimed Barn Wood Flooring

The character of your reclaimed wood floor comes from the combination of species and old growth tight-ring grain patterns, along with the saw marks, nail holes, sapwood, and patina acquired during the wood's life as old growth timber or as a piece of an historic structure. These visually and texturally pleasing character marks, matched with the increased durability of old growth, naturally air dried aged wood, allow our reclaimed floors to take wear well, especially in high traffic areas.

Our authentic reclaimed barn wood will be your project’s key ingredient.

We offer a number of premium quality reclaimed flooring choices.

You choose species, surface finishes, dimensions, and milled profiles.

Texture Selection

One unique aspect of working with reclaimed wood is the ability to customize the texture of original surfaces depending on the character of flooring you desire. This gives you the freedom to choose a rustic or clean look, while maintaining original and authentic character, unlike anything produced in conventional flooring mills. We offer four surface finish options: True Grit 100% Original, Rustic 50% Original, Natural 25% Original, and Timeless 100% Clean.

Timeless—0% Original Surface
Our Timeless 100% Clean surface finish keeps the unique character and beauty of a reclaimed old growth wood floor with a cleaner, less rustic look. The material will have a newly milled smooth surface to reveal lighter tones of the natural wood coloring and showcase the well preserved old growth grain patterns of the historic wood species.
Natural—25% Original Surface
Our most popular option, Natural 25% Original Surface floors are mostly smooth but maintain deeper surface patina character, such as circular saw marks and nail holes. 75% of the original surface texture is freshly skip-planed to reveal and showcase the well preserved old growth grain patterns and natural coloration of the historic wood species
Rustic—50% Original Surface
Our Rustic 50% Original floors are lightly skip-planed to retain half of their original surface texture. This provides a great balance in texture for those who prefer to have lots of rustic original patina character but like a consistently smooth skip-planed surface that freshly exposes the well preserved old growth grain patterns of the historic barn boards.
True Grit—100% Original Surface
With its untouched original surface and historic patina, our True Grit 100% Original floors have the authentic look of a rustic cabin or barn. Freshly milled edge profiles ensure tight fitting joinery and consistent installation. 100% original surface barn boards are wire brushed to gently smooth any surfaces that are too rough for everyday use.

Mixed Hardwoods

Wood species include oak, elm, ash, beech, and maple. Our two most popular hardwood flooring options, mixed oak and mixed hardwoods, are cut from reclaimed barn siding boards. Red or white oak flooring is considered a specialty wood and is cut from reclaimed timbers. We also offer specialty hardwoods such as chestnut and hickory, which are available upon request.

Mixed Oak

A mixture of reclaimed oak barn wood siding, these floors have a similar grain pattern throughout and maintain a classic look over time. Most mixed oak floors naturally range from tan and gold to chocolate brown patina. Other desirable and natural features including original nail, knot, saw, sapwood, and historical wear marks. Widths range from 2" to 8".

Douglas Fir

Milled from reclaimed timbers and planed to create beautiful flooring material, Douglas fir is our premier softwood flooring option. Milled from reclaimed barn wood timbers and given a fresh tongue and groove milled profile, Douglas fir is loved for its handsome old growth grain patterns, high strength to weight ratio, and air dried stability.

Fence Plank

Oak fence planks that once lined farms across North America are plucked from our agrarian past, providing an excellent source for reclaimed wood for flooring with boards ranging from 3-1/2" to 4" widths. Fence board flooring is only available in our Timeless100% surface texture, revealing a depth of oak character on freshly milled plank faces.

Barn Threshing

Today, reclaimed threshing boards can be repurposed in a variety of applications including flooring, stairs, railing, and counter tops. With its untouched original surface and historic patina, our true grit 100% original barn threshing floors have the authentic look of a rustic cabin or barn. These thick boards possess historical character and unique textures from our agrarian heritage.

Red or White
Oak Flooring

Wood that is cut from red or white oak timbers and then planed into flooring material is highly desirable because of its strength, tight grains, and rich array of color. Tones can range from a blonde to a nutty brown patina.

We periodically source other wood species such as chestnut and hickory. Call our office or inquire about options and availability here.
