I like the idea. What made you go with white oak? I too prefer white oak for the lack of pink tones. I hear oak prices are variable between red and white, sometimes one is more than the other and vice versa. In my area white oak is more expensive.

I like the mixed board width. Decided on a stain color?

It is my understanding that white oak is harder than red oak, though admittedly probably not too much. I'm not really drawn to the tones of the red oak personally, though many are. I'm in Lexington KY, which is bourbon country and white oak is being aquired en mass by the bourbon industry for barrels, this driving up the price. At least that is what I'm told. In any event, I like the idea of the #1 common, so it shows the more holes and other characteristics that make natural wood fun.

Oh yeah, I'm preferring no stain, allowing the wood to speak for itself. I will consult others on this though. What are the advantages of staining?

I heard the same thing about hardness. Interesting point about bourbon barrels and white oak. I am just up the street in Cincy, so prices are probably inline. Looking forward to more pics...

Hmm...slower going now, but that's ok. White oak floors have been acclimating for the last month and the installer is scheduled to start in two weeks. I have been prepping the front entrance for me to install the natural limestone steps in the past few days. Going to install natural cleft dimensional bluestone as the surface behind the steps. Lotta work, considering I started a new job in the midst of all this. I'll post new pics as we are gearing up for the final push to get into this house. Thanks for your interest...it's been a challenge for sure!

Here's one coat of poly on the white oak floors as of Tuesday. Final coat goes on today.

Getting closer to the finish line fellas. I'm thinking about installing a floating cork floor in the basement for the pool room. Would be installed on concrete. Any thoughts about the cork?

Here's some of the reclaimed white oak we repurposed from our barn for use as countertops/shelving etc. Gonna use one of the long 20' boards for a drink rail in the pool room...
