What are Live Sawn Planks?
For this home, Oak & Broad wanted to add another layer of elegance and sophistication with the perfect flooring. We provided Live Sawn planks, which are also commonly known as French Sawn. These planks are cut straight off the log in layers without changing the direction of the log. This milling method creates planks that display the full range of the log’s grains and knots, which adds more interest and character to each plank. Live Sawn planks also create less waste and provide a more environmentally friendly way of using logs.
As you can see from the images, this home showcases ¾” Live Sawn wide plank White Oak flooring over 6,000 square feet of living space. This floor is also unique because it utilizes extra long planks to reduce the necessity for seams. By using wide and long planks, the floor avoids appearing too choppy and achieves a more continuous look. This design choice also helps to make the home feel even more spacious.
Ultimately, the choice of Live Sawn wide plank White Oak flooring added to the luxury of this beautiful home and helped to enhance to many of the other unique design choices. The distinct patterns of Live Sawn planks bring more of the outdoors inside and create a look that blends nature and architecture.
