Wide Angle

Anyone who knows me, knows I've been dreaming of owning a very old home with original extra wide plank floors. There are a multitude of other specs on my dream house list, but these floors are a MUST. And after a stroll through a 1863 Center Hall Colonial upstate yesterday with the original floors in tact under carpet and some other modern overlays, imagining the afternoons I'd spend sanding and refinishing them to their intended glory, the dream has re-morphed into obsession. Take a moment to obsess with me, eh?

  1. I love wide plank floors. My dream is to remodel my house and put reclaimed wood in.
