Historic Database of DC Building Permits

Send me an email with your DC street address and I will send you your free copy, if it exists in the database, which covers around 1870 to 1950.

Note: Often times the permit was pulled for an entire row of houses or two in case of duplex so the estimated cost is divided by the number of units.

Recycled IN STOCK Wood Flooring

Recycled flooring is exactly that. Wood floors removed from an old house, de-nailed, re-bundled, installed in your home and sanded and finished. You will find normal defects expected on a floor that has been lived on for eighty years. Gaps, discolorations and other imperfections. The old growth wood though, has characteristics that cannot be found in new flooring such as longer lengths and beautiful graining patterns. We currently recycle over ten thousand feet of flooring each year.

Supplies are limited as we recover the products from structures slated for demolition

FSC Un-finished domestic wood flooring

What is the Forest Stewardship Council?

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organization with diverse representation including environmental institutions, timber and trade organizations, forestry professionals, indigenous peoples' organizations, community forestry groups, and forest product certification organizations from 25 countries. The Council accredits certification bodies and promotes voluntary, third-party certification. The FSC logo on a product provides consumers with an assurance that the wood they use comes from forests managed in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.

 

What are the measurement criteria for FSC certification?

A forest is scientifically evaluated based on management practices in three areas: sustainable harvest, ecosystem health, and community benefits. Biologists, ecologists, silviculturists, and foresters examine and measure the impact of forest practices on wildlife and their habitat, water quality, soil and plant conservation, natural forest sustainability and biodiversity, visual aesthetics, and the total ecological integrity of the forest.

As natural as wood itself.
Wood that is used indoors (for floors, furniture or children‘s toys), is subjected to a lot of wear and tear. Therefore it needs special protection that doesn‘t impair the natural properties of the wood. Wood must be allowed to “breathe” so that it retains its elasticity and has a positive effect on room climate. Once Osmo interior finish has been applied, the wood will retain its natural appearance and feel. While its surface will become hard-wearing, non-abrasive, water-repellent, and dirt-resistant. It will be protected against everyday accidents with water, wine, beer, cola, sodas, etc. And should any minor damages occur, surfaces can easily be touched up, with no visible brushmarks. Osmo finishes offer excellent quality, are easy to use and have a superior coverage.

Experience you can trust.

 Osmo’s range of colors and surfaces are all developed and produced by Osmo.
 Osmo wood finishes are all produced on a base of natural oils and waxes.
 The raw material is purified and refined in a number of extensive processes and is safe for humans, animals and plants.
 When a solvent must be used for the sake of product quality, small quantities of disaromatized white spirit (benzene-free) has been added.
 A little goes a long way. In fact, our products generally go
two to three times further than traditional wood finishes.
