We built a LEED-certified home and used Excelsior’s reclaimed heart pine in many ways: flooring, benches, and posts. Ron sourced and obtained amazingly gorgeous beams from a factory in Ohio that were planed into gorgeous, wide plank flooring. I built the house along with a lead carpenter who was initially skeptical about working with such long, wide reclaimed wood. He was also skeptical that the finish would work as promised. By the end of the installation, our carpenter was a convert. He said, “This was the easiest, best floor to install. And, I can’t believe a single coat of VOC free flooring oil could be so easy to use yet so beautiful.” A year later, the floor looks great. Even more, it feels great on our feet.
