Salvaged Wood Floors

The front door’s interior casing is a good example of the simple millwork found throughout the remodeled 1940 house. Hardwood flooring was removed and reinstalled, supplemented by similar boards salvaged from other remodels. “I got quite familiar with all the deconstruction sites nearby,” says Linda. The couple spent weeks removing the nails themselves before the boards could be reinstalled and refinished with the water-based top coat. The built-in bench makes tidy use of what otherwise might have been wasted space.
