old growth southern yellow pine
We have a victorian house and have been considering porch flooring materials. We have a local supplier that has tigerwood in stock at a better price than we can buy ipe.
BUT, a specialty wood dealer also has 'reclaimed old growth southern yellow pine' t&g which we could paint. We would like the look of an old painted porch, but not sure if the boards will hold up. Our porches will be covered with very little direct sunlight if that matters.
I have been reading this site for the past several months and now we must make a decision....have not found any info on 'reclaimed southern yellow pine' for porch floor material.
We live in northern Michigan.
Any input is appreciated and I thank you in advance.
