One of the nicest parts of the new Camp guest house (Social House) lies under our feet. The flooring has a unique story – it’s made its way all the way from upstate New York to find a home at Camp. The Hudson Company creates the most beautiful floors by saving the bones of old buildings and structures….they recover lumber from antique barns, retired factories and decommissioned rooftop water towers across the Ohio River Valley and then custom mill the wood to fit any need or use. (We did a little interview with them earlier in the year for their inspiration series). We are so excited to put floors with a story into our latest project – and to share a few behind the scenes snaps of the work-in-progress! (Stay tuned for more as we near completion.)
Reclaimed Mixed Wood Threshing Floor: Threshing is an historic agrarian process where wheat was separated from the chafe. Most often, the farmer used his oxen and cattle to tread repeatedly over the crop to accelerate the separation. The process leaves the wide floor with a rugged character. The sheer size, patina, and rugged character provide an unique offering.
