      Hi there,
      I’m renovating/restoring a Dublin georgain townhouse built in 1814. The floorboards are not tongue and groove – because that hadn’t been invented at the time. The builder is saying they are “White Deal”, varying between 7 inches to 9 inches wide and 1 inch deep. I understand that to be Spruce. The floors need serious patching up, and I’m wondering would it be OK to buy new “white Deal” and maybe stain it to look old and fit in . ..

      Any ideas?

      Macs salvage in Island bridge
      Jack Grey in Newry
      The Victorian Salvage Co in Townsend St

      A little pricier than they used to be particularly the last one,

      I hope this is of some help, if it is a georgian house 9″ would be standard, and they were never grooved at least not before 1910 or so.
