Dismantled Barns...for wood floors

Dismantled Barn Wood..

As a follow up to my post...Cedar connections..

I am ready to install a floor..

Does anyone have connections or know of Barn dismantlers within reasonable distance...( probably upstate NY..)

I have decided on an antique wood floor...very similar to pics here..
Need about 1000 Sq. Ft..

After floor is in I will distress wood walls and possibly stain..

Is the wood for the floor of the garage? If so, that's a major fire hazard and will not meet the building code.

If a flammable liquid like gasoline drips onto the floor from the car, then ignites, the wood floor would act as a fuel source and rapidly spread the fire. Static electricity is known to ignite gasoline, not just heat.

That looks amazing! Well done. Go with cobble stone or brick.

If you still want wooden shop style flooring consider end grain blocks. This was pretty common with large industrial facilities back in the 20s and 30s.

Beginning in the early 1920s, Wood Block Flooring was successfully installed in major manufacturing facilities across our country, including GM, Ford, Caterpillar, GE, Alcoa, Pratt & Whitney, and in most all major steel manufacturers, including US Steel, Allegheny Ludlum Steel, and Bethlehem Steel. The European machine tool industry also adopted Wood Block Flooring for industrial use.

Not sure how that would get a person by current building/fire code either....? Btw is this a garage? If so it's supposed to have fire rated gypsum on any shared walls with the living space too

I do Hardwood flooring as my business but as was mentioned you can't use it in a garage. Not only because of the fire but any water would cause the wood to expand and warp.

Why not look into concrete polishing and staining? It is amazing what can be done with concrete. Check out my friends site: Decocrete. He has a partner in the New York area also...

Well darn... there goes my idea for wood block flooring in the shop section of my garage.

I toured ATK's solid rocket booster manufacturing facility in Utah a couple of years ago and saw this type of flooring there; wanted it ever since.

Thanks for the heads up.

Look up the woods company they have some great reclaimed distressed flooring unfinished or finished with the monocoat oil


Mountain lumber is another source but I prefer the woods company as a vendor.

+1 Great Idea.

How would you have kept that wood surface clean in a garage anyway?

Smooth is good rough is a big PITA.

Or do Ferrari's not leak fluids ...

I am on High ground as far as flood or water intrusion is concerned, not worried about wet wood, although H Sandy might have gotten in..if it hit the east end.

There is a new wood sealer called waterborne..it is an invisible matt almost polyurethane type wood sealer...The top could just be washed of anything..I want the atmosphere to be that of a living room...couch chairs TV..so the warmth that that floor wood have added would really have been nice..



Waterborne Finishes and Sealers

Not sold on polished concrete , but it may be the way..possibly with Rugs..concrete needs sound damping..
Gotta regroup my thoughts.


Any Other Suggestions!!!

The problem with using sealers on wood is that it must cover and seal every single crevice, groove and joint. If not it will warp. Humidity (or lack of it) will cause it to shrink or expand. Remember wood is a living thing. It moves with temperature and humidity. It really is not good for a garage no matter what kind of sealer you put on it. I use the highest quality water based finishes on the market and just a bit of water between the joints and it's over...it will buckle.

There is so much you can do with concrete. Not just polishing but staining and acid washing. It is really amazing to see the results and it looks like you have a great surface to start with. The only limit is your imagination. You could put a Ferrari crest into the floor...

IMO...New wood flooring like 1/4 sawn oak , I agree..its dense and will warp in a sec..
I chose 50 + year old Cedar because of its pourosity..It is open grain and flat as can be ..
Look at the first pic..It aint warping no where, it is as light as a feather compared to new flooring..
Sealing it would only stop stains...again I do not expect any water and would have applied it with those big tubes of liquid Nails beneath..Butt to square butt, like barn board.That stuff is superior adhesive..
BUT... I am off that idea now..If I ever have to sell the house thats a no pass inspection ticket!
