We live in a 40's Ranch home. Ceilings in a carport, south-facing porch and one interior room are planks of varying widths-I believe of locally hewn magnolia. I wonder if and how they could be removed and perhaps used for flooring(after planing) in a remodel we are planning to do ourselves. Ideas for replacement for the ceiling would be helpful too. We live in central Florida and are retired project junkies.
