I have recently purchased a 1912 California Bungalow. The living room and dining room are open to each other. Unfortunately the previous owner decided the best way to get under the house was through the living room's red oak floor. So I have one corner of the living room with built up plywood.
I don't want to feather in the new wood, so I was going to rip up existing flooring to the opposite wall. Should I mix in new and old? or should i just replace everything with new? I dont want to have a patchy look and maybe a quick transition is better? Has anyone had experience working with reclaimed flooring? Pros cons?
