Old barn wood is in very high demand. It generally has great character and the wood is 'old growth' quality. Take the wood to a local wood mill and I would think they would be able to help you convert the wood into wood flooring.

Oak & Broad
That floor is really pretty! Oak with a custom stain?

The oak flooring actually was salvaged from the house that was torn down on site. The existing home was deconstructed, both for environmental purposes as well as for a tax deduction.

The salvage wood flooring was then reused in the new home, along with a few leaded glass samples and a few other building elements. The floor was from about 1910, and as you can see has great character.

I don't recall the stain that we used. It was likely a standard color from Minwax or one of the other stain companies.

The angle is 7º for the backrest and the height is 22". The seat is set at 18" to the top of the cushion, which we assumed was 2" thick.

I believe that the bench was set up to be at 17". That allowed 2" more for the cushions, making the seat a total of 19" high at its finished height. 18" - 20" works well for seat heights.

I hope that helps.

can you tell me the dimensions of the seat? I have a nook in my kitchen I am want to build a banquette in, but I"m not sure if it is deep enough. mainly concerned about the two ends, not so much the longer seat across the back.

The overall bay is 10'-2" wide, and the depth of the seating is 24", which includes the sloped backs. The returns on the sides are 3'-6" from edge to the wall of the bay.

I absolutely love this built in!!! I am in need of an L-shaped bench but this is so beautiful! Are there plans available for this bench that we could make a few custom changes to so it could fit our space? thank you!!

Hi Ninny,

It's a Minka Lavery Pendant in Black Finish - 1817-66.

Here's the link: http://lightingbygregory.com/lighting/product/ml-1817-66.html

By the way, I'm the builder of that home - I have many more photos of that house posted here: http://www.greendoordevelopment.com/j/photo-gallery.html

Take care,

Zach
