While we sell our flooring products and accessories all over the country, we acquire our reclaimed heart of pine raw materials in North Carolina's backyard. Our mission is to salvage and preserve the heritage of longleaf pine lumber from mills, tobacco barns, and other places across the state. The different regions of North Carolina provide us with many types of lumber, each with distinct characteristics that can't be found anywhere else in the country
Eastern North Carolina has been growing tobacco for well over a century. During that time, the region became the largest producer of tobacco in the world. After harvesting the tobacco, it had to be "cured" in barns before it was sold. The barns were heated to extreme temperatures to remove all of the moisture from the tobacco leaves. As technology improved, metal barns became the more efficient choice for farmers, thus making the old wooden barns obsolete. We salvage the reclaimed heart of pinewood from the curing barns that still dot the countryside to create the Legacy Collection, which includes three matchless, distressed heart of pine flooring styles.
