INSPIRATIONS – Cochran’s Lumber June Newsletter



For our June Inspirations Newsletter, Cochran’s Lumber is proud to feature several of our most popular flooring and mill working products, both new and reclaimed. Nestled in the Virginia countryside, these two homes combine both functionality and style with our White Oak and Antique Oak flooring and beams.


Client Spotlight

As the saying goes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. So when our client and his designer visited Cochran’s in the summer of 2016, he knew exactly where he was getting his inspiration from – our showroom. From our pet-friendly Fumed White Oak flooring to our custom stained Antique Oak beams, Mike imitated the materials within our showroom to create a stunning, yet comfortable home for him to enjoy with family and friends.

Mike, you recently completed construction on your beautiful home in Prince William County. Tell us a little about your farm and the design process behind your residence.

I have been dreaming about this for years – and wanted a house that had elements of New England farm houses (I spent much of my youth in VT), Tidewater farm houses, and a fishing lodge a friend built in Montana. The prime focus is a great room with 3 sides of windows and a wrap around porch to enjoy the views of the fields and woods on a knoll on my farm – and a magnificent 42 inch Black Oak that is centered on my great room.

During the design process, you visited our showroom and took inspiration from it when designing your living and dining room area. Tell us why you choose our Fumed – Live Sawn White Oak flooring, White Pine ceiling, and Antique Oak beams and how they tie into the other details in your home. 

Simply – it just reminded me of my youth in a renovated farm house in Vermont.  The uniqueness of Cochran’s products allowed me to get the feel of being in an old farm house. The combination of your products, along with modern amenities, gave my home a one-of-a-kind feel.

Rustic Remodel

We had the privilege of partnering with Middleburg Design on this Northern Virginia remodel. Our Antique Oak floors were laid throughout the entire home, complimenting the client’s wish to keep the overall rustic ambience of the space.

“This client chose Cochran’s Antique Oak flooring because they wanted a rustic look – flooring that has both patina and durability. This flooring will look as distinguished and classic as it did the day it was installed.  Thank you Cochran’s for providing a flooring that we are proud to stand behind and sell to our clients!”

– Andie Lyle, Middleburg Design Company
