Install reclaimed pine floorboards on concrete?

Posted by admin on October 8th, 2013 and filed under reclaimed flooring | 5 Comments »

I would like to install tongue and groove reclaimed pine floor boards onto ground floor concrete floor.

The house was built in 1980 and currently has hard lino floor tiles glued to the floor in 70% of the floor area the other 30% has ceramic floor tiles on it that will have to be removed.

The pine floor board has tongue and groove along its length but not on the very ends of each board. I want to make sure I can do this before buying 55sq yards of boards

Thanks in advance

What building materials have limestone in them?

Posted by admin on October 8th, 2013 and filed under used building materials | 2 Comments »

Can you think of 4 building materials that have limestone … Calcium carbonate … In them
Ive already got cement and i meed things like that

You aren’t going to find many, because of acid rain deteriorates limestone.

Here is a link to a quick list of uses for calcium carbonate:

Cement does not actually have calcium carbonate in it. Calcium carbonate is heated to drive off a carbon dioxide molecule, forming calcium oxide, which is what ends up in the cement.

How do you prevent the forces of nature from ruining a wooden tree house/fort?

Posted by admin on October 8th, 2013 and filed under building salvage | 4 Comments »

My friends and I are building a little house in a forest with old planks of wood and branches. We know it is very stable, as it is supported by several trees, so we are not worried about extreme winds or storms. What we ARE worried about, is damage to the house from moisture (rain), mold, heat, cold, termites, and other bugs. We were discussing different options like waterproofing, and wood finishing, but we are unsure of what we should do. How can we protect the house from these issues so it can survive for years to come?

If you’re using branches and old wood, sealing it won’t help much. The wood may already have begun to decay. About the only way to preserve it is to put a waterproof roof on it over the wood you have used to frame it–shingles aren’t that expensive and they’re fairly easy to put on. You can’t really waterproof branches–or old wood–especially salvaged wood. Despite that, it will probably last for years anyway–wood doesn’t decay and fall apart overnight. It takes years. Even out in the weather. You could buy a couple of cheap plastic tarps and throw over it when the weather gets bad–tie them down with bungee cords or ropes.

Insects are another issue–only termites or earwigs in HUGE numbers will really bother the wood–you don’t have a lot to fear from other kinds.

Pioneers and homesteaders used to use pitch (tar) to minimize weather damage to wooden structures–but you can’t do that–it’s dangerously flammable. And only treated wood will hold up against outside forces for decades–but you probably won’t use the little tree house for that long anyway.

How can I lay hardwood floors without tongue and groove onto concrete?

Posted by admin on October 8th, 2013 and filed under reclaimed wood | 3 Comments »

I have reclaimed parquet wood flooring. Each piece is 1" by 4". A lot of little pieces without the benefit of tongue and grooves. How can I install the floor onto concrete?

Only way to do this with out having to build a sleeper system is to glue it down.
There are glues for this and a special trowel.
This works best for on grade slabs. or below grades that were built in later years and are known to have a vapor barrier under the slab.
With out the T&G expect to do some sanding for uneven edges.
