Charleston One Source’s Pat Devaney met me at beautiful Glendalough Manor near Atlanta to see builder, Gary Alford last Thursday. After looking through Goodwin’s album Gary and his client chose end-grain tiles and vertical grain Antique Heart Pine wood flooring for a home they are building nearby. When we offered to pre-square and groove the pieces to help create a herringbone pattern Gary said, “Wood work is what God put me here on Earth to do.” Can’t wait to see the floors when finished.
On to my next stop…
The Yellow Bluff Company south of Savannah was lovely when I arrived late the next day at sundown to deliver a 1901 photograph of heart pine logs being rafted down river. The frame was of Goodwin’s Antique Heart Cypress to hang in the clubhouse that has Midnight Heart Pine and Legacy Vertical Antique Heart Pine flooring and stair parts.
I plan to visit St. Petersburg, Florida and Key West to deliver more wood flooring soon. Call if you want to come along to see beautiful antique river-recovered and reclaimed wood and meet great crafts people.
