One-of a-kind Floors from last of a kind wood. Quality. Experience. Since 1984.

On the banks of the upper Green River in southwest Henderson County, NC we began our company before our product was even known as Reclaimed Wood.  Back then people mostly called it antique wood  or old wood flooring.  We were “green” before it was cool!

Jim Stowell didn’t plan to start a business when he did, but he fell in love with heart pine which he learned of while building a house in the early 1980’s. A craftsman himself, someone asked if he could make it into flooring and the rest as they say – is history …

In addition to heart pine and red and white oak, our reclaimed antique flooring includes fluctuating hardwood quantities of maple, chestnut, birch and gum, hickory, sycamore, and elm as well as softer wood like hemlock, redwood and cypress.


“We loved our experience with Whole Log. You guys were trustworthy and lived up to everything you said you would after our first builder tried to sell us oil drenched reclaimed wood for almost twice the price. We’re happy to comment here because we want honest businesses like yours to be successful, and that’s what you guys are–honest.”

“I LOVE this wood that Whole Log Lumber helped me find for my house!”

– Dave Matthews Musician, Rock Star

“Since 2006, we’ve worked with Whole Log Lumber on a number of projects to create the home of our dreams in the mountains. They have advised what is practical in reclaimed wood and what is not, and we’ve even purchased new wood and brought it to their mill knowing the accuracy could be depended on. Their skills as a saw mill shine.”

– Chaffe McIlheny Henderson County, NC

“Jim and his guys provided heart pine, redwood and cypress for me, and he has done floors for several members of my family. My house is really unique and the wood from Whole Log is a major part of it. Sometimes the specs got tricky, but they always came through.”

– Mark MessierHockey Player, Homeowner

“How very refreshing it is to deal with people whom you can trust to deliver what is promised and when it is promised! The warmth and beauty of the old wood from Jim and Loy graces our home from top to bottom. Whether heart pine, cypress, or redwood–all the old-growth antique wood from Whole Log we’ve received is enjoying a new life with us, which we shall treasure for the rest of our lives.”
