In search of a front door to replace this horrid Home Depot special that is on our beautiful 1865 home. I'm guessing the original door was larger and most likely in line with the windows. The height…Continue

Hey - I just did a simple search in your area for salvaged wood and came up with this:

Real Antique Wood
31 Cordier Street
Irvington, NJ 07111

973-923-3273 /

If you decide to replace your floor, go for thicker boards.  I have had extensions attached to the bottom of my front door (it was too short)  It works fine and is possible.  Good luck.

I have a 1790 house.  We've been through a lot and are continuing to restore.  It's the 1790 Tiny House in Wiscasset, ME - google it.

Just wanted to let you know that I ended up using the people you found for me and they are absolutely amazing. We pulled up the ugly floor to find the original pumpkin pine. Unfortunately it was in very bad shape (mostly because the floor that had been put down on top was glued with more glue than I knew existed and some sections just ripped up untrue pieces of pine when they were removed). Sad. But Real Antique Wood had reclaimed pine floors that they have installed and they are amazing. We are actually in the process of doing it all now. I can't say enough good things about them.
