Hmm! I wonder if that was made in Louisville, KY? Or elsewhere? I will have to research that. I am from Louisville. That is interesting!!!

What a cool piece! Yep, juliep, let us know if that's from an Old Kentucky Home!

I did have a sink kinda like that, but it was porcelain and was broken a couple of moves back. I salvaged the fixtures, 12" o.c., although not like yours. (It was a pre WWII Kohler sink.) Have no clue what I'll ever do with them unless I renovate a bathroom with a sink mounted under a wood top. I can't even remember now if the fixtures connect to the drain or not!

denim, you are going to be so happy there!!! Really like the wood put on at an angle. It's a bit more time consuming but it sure looks good. Is that redwood on the ceiling?

Oakwood (Butler,TX), TX(Zone 8b)

The Walls are beetle Kill Blue pine we went to CO to buy The ceiling is Texas Cedar we had milled
Heres my Dinning room wall done in the blue pine & my DH my house builder

DH looks to be an excelent carpenter! Is he for rent?! Look at all those electrical outlets! You can never have to many. What are you going to put on the floor? When we built our house we used a lot of salvaged wood. The floor is maple from a school gym that had burned down. We had to clean it of paint, gum, and the extra varnish on the edges and cut it to fit of course. That was 40 years ago and it still looks great. We paid 10 cents a foot for it...... The floor joists (it's over a basement) are 3x8 so it doesn't move or squeak.

he is an electrician by trade so I have power every where...lol there is a waiting list for him.
I have 1200sq ft of maple flooring out of a school guy :) we paid a $1.00 that not bad just up .90 cents in 40 years
we are built over a 4' crawspace (mini basement)lol
some of the floors are/will be cobblewood I did with recycled cedar 4x4 & 4x6
this is another bath with cobblwood floor it will 100 year old barnwood & recycled roofing tin on the walls

OMG! Love the floors!! What a great and beautiful idea. What are you going to seal them with? Are you two doing the work yourselves? My husband and I built our home. We did everything but the electrical, plumbing, windows, and the shingles on the roof. Looking at your photos brings back many memories. Take lots of photos. We knew next to nothing about building a house. My husband built and tore down bridges in the army, that was it. When we got the plans we sat and looked at them for three weeks before we started anything. The first thing we built on our property was a corral and shed. I had two horses at the time. We lived in a 16' travel trailer at the site for 18 months before we could move in. Myself, hubby and 6 yr. old son. It was cozy....... All in all, it was a wonderful experience. And the house turned out beautifully!

the cobble wood floor is finished with 3 coats of clear polly I may put a coat or 2 more on when we are finished building the walls.
Yes we have done everything ourselves except the cement work for the foundation walls.we started in June of 09 and should be in before june of 12 ,, not to bad
we are in a mobile right now we had been living in a 35' 5th wheel
I did our plans in 04 when we were in WY on DH's last job before we retired.
