Reclaimed Fir Flooring From the Old West
The 19th century saw a massive migration west. The frontier looked almost endless and offered a pure land of opportunity for those willing to risk it. This was the time of the Oregon Trail, and pioneers would form wagon trains for safety and protection as they made their way across the plains. Ahead of them were the country's earliest lumberjacks, clearing forests and sending logs to the mill to produce lumber the settlers needed to start their new lives.
In the 1800s, the country had more forests, and many of them had towering Douglas fir evergreens. These trees have lifespans that last up to three centuries and grow well over 100 feet tall. Due to their numbers, size and natural beauty, Douglas firs were exceedingly popular for building back then and remain so today. As the settlers headed west, their anticipation would grow until they came across one of the great timber stands that dotted the landscape.
Here, settlers bought the wood and other supplies they needed to get started. They used the fresh-cut fir to build homes, barns, stables, the local sheriff's office and the other structures they needed to transform the open plains into the frontier towns you picture today. The successful settlements stood for years, and some lasted a century or more. Now, with the buildings going down in favor of new construction, their history lives on as reclaimed fir softwood flooring.
