Just pulled up the floor of a 130 year old house and this is what we found.
Hoise was built in 1890 and from what I can tell this wood must have been the floor from the original build.

What type wood is this and where can I find matching wood to fill in the areas where they patched some of the areas when plywood?

What is the cost of sanding and refinishing this floor? I’d like to save it and refinishing it to the best restoration possible.

How to best remove the paint that is present in many areas?

Any other information you may be able to thrown my way. I consider this to be quite a find and am anxious to restore it to its best state.


I’ll post photos as soon as I read up on how to post them as I’m new to this site.

Where is the location of the house? 1890 is not that old. You may be able to mill wood to the same profile, if you can find the material.
