Rousseau Reclaimed harvests original surface flooring from residential structures that have been retired from use. These floors reflect decades or perhaps centuries of use, foot-worn, ready for a new generation.


Agricultural structures are a common source of original surface flooring: barns, silos, and threshing floors. These rustic floors are remarkably durable as well as versatile.


Rousseau Reclaimed often harvests lumber from industrial structures. These harvests can yield amazing, one-of-a-kind lumber. For example, the above photo is a floor made of oak salvaged from a defunct cotton mill in Tennessee. John Rousseau scouts the entire United States in search of industrial lumber, common and otherwise.
