Fifth floor

The wood for the dining room floor arrived yesterday.
It is reclaimed Douglas fir, around 200 years old, sawn from old roof beams.
The planks are not perfect - which is part of their charm - but they're 9" wide and have a gorgeous colour and beautiful grain.
The planks are mostly 12' long so can span the room without joins.

I am very pleased with it. Laying the dining rooom floor will be the main job tomorrow, using traditional cut nails.
