Thats like the exposed brick we have.. Great ideas to work with!! And that is exactly how our our floor is.. I love the nails they used back then..i found a jar of a few of them in the garage the previous owners saved from one of the remodeIs and i keep them on display in a pewter sugar bowl on top of the fire place in the log room.. Great conversation piece!!
