Edinburg Log House

The floor in this picture was reclaimed from an early log house which was located in Edinburg Va. Only ninety minutes from Northern Va and Washington DC area.
The structure dates to about the 1820-1840,s circa and is believed to have been moved just a few yards back from its original site to make room for the widening of what’s now called US 11 Old Valley Pike.
It featured along with its wide plank floor, 12 inch wide panel boards and its structure was what we call saddle notch logs.
Old Valley Pike is often referred to as the old Indian trail which stretched from the upper northeastern states to the lower southeastern states.
The yellow pine floor also called heart pine is common to the Shenandoah Valley and was used much more frequent than oak and was the wood of preference for this area. This floor was taken in its original condition fitted together and lightly sanded for its finished look. In doing so it kept its original patina which is highly preferred versus completely remilling it.
The housewright shop actively seeks the earliest structures to insure antique quality reclaimed woods. The earlier the better for the simple reason the virgin timber used to build these structures are the longest lasting and purest patina on the market place today.
