500sf of 18th century chestnut wall boards. When trimmed and patched this batch will make a 70′ long wall that is 7’+ tall. Planks measure from about 10″ to 23″ wide (most 16″+) and 5/4″ thick. Great, relatively flat material that is rough sawn and has plaster and lath “ghosts.” Could be used “as is” with a good washing. A few boards need some holes patched and a few cracks glued or edges straight-lined. It could also be hand-planed and beaded for a fabulous finished wall.
Cost: 500sf, whole batch only, $20,000
