The Traditional Wood Floor Would Be “Floored” by This…
If you haven’t heard of it before, natural cordwood flooring is becoming more and more popular, and for good reason. This stuff is hot in a “bow-chic-a-bow-wow” kind of way. Take a scroll through the photos below, but first prepare yourself to be wowed.
Sunny Pettis Lutz send some photos of her gorgeous, hand-made cordwood floor. The following [shows]… how they made their floor with legal pickings from the state forest. “Go out to the forest and harvest dead trees. In our area that means Juniper and Pine. We are using Shaggy Bark Juniper and Alligator Bark Juniper.” Prepare surface by sweeping and mopping clean. We are gluing directly onto our concreet slab. Begin to layout disks on the floor. Try to get them as close as possible. Work in 2′ sections. Glue the pieces down and firmly tamp them. Grout the spaces between the slices with a mix of 80% tile grout, 20% sawdust. Your local flooring store will have many options. Apply 2-3 coats of polyurethane to finish.
