Project Spotlight: Gray Ghost + Hampton & Massie


Gray Ghost Wood Floor Finish

It has been incredibly hot here in the Shenandoah Valley lately and we can’t believe that the heat is finally laying off a bit to usher in the end of summer. Cochran’s Lumber is so blessed to have stayed busy among the challenges of the pandemic and we want to share one of our recent successes with you all. This summer, our Gray Ghost floors were laid in this beautiful Hampton & Massie home in Rappahannock County, VA.

Rural Hidden Gem

This Hampton & Massie home is supremely nestled in the middle of nowhere—seriously. We wish there were photos of the exterior to share because the curb appeal of this subtly red, cabin-like home is excellent. Our floors were laid on the entire main level, stairs, and second level landing to carry those same cozy, cabin vibes throughout the interior. Gigantic windows in the open living space allowing natural light to shine down on our Gray Ghost in a heavenly way.

Gray Ghost

Live sawn white oak in our custom Gray Ghost matte oil stain is the perfect combination of character-rich yet neutral. It would be difficult to find a room that this floor wouldn’t look great in. This Cochran’s Lumber original stain is named after war Colonel John S. Mosby. Mosby was nicknamed “Gray Ghost” because of his elusive behavior and ability to blend into his surroundings. In this particular build, Gray Ghost is shown on our solid white oak flooring in 4”-6” lengths. The client also opted to add a circle saw kerf texture for extra character.

Hampton & Massie

Cochran’s Lumber has been doing business with Hampton & Massie for almost 10 years. The company and the work they do is nothing short of good, old-fashioned quality. Operating out of Rappahannock County, they have the capacity and skills to complete the biggest of projects while still employing the attention to detail and true craftsmanship that small projects allow. We encourage you to explore their beautiful (and often very stately!) projects.

Thank you for being one of the reasons Cochran’s Lumber is able to survive among such global misfortune. Cheers to the end of this hot summer and get in touch with us to start a project or to have your project featured here.
