I am remodeling a bathroom in a home built in the 1860's. When we started demolition we found plank walls in excelent condition. since we want to return the house to it's original condition we decided to keep these and to put down a plank floor. In keeping with the type of materials used in the original construction we have chosen a fir 3" planking.
Our main concern is is finish and duability. It is the downstairs bath which is used most. It is also where we will wash our two large dogs in the winter months as well as any other non typical bath jobs.
Does any body have suggestions? My wife is set on using this for flooring with a "medium-dark" stain.
