I'm trying to buy some hardwood floors to install and I'm trying to cut costs. I want to order 5" width 3/4" thick floor but that's a bit expensive for the type of wood I want.
1. I can buy some cabin grade that is about 1/2 price. I can buy about 1/2 the amount I need for cabin grade.
2. I can buy 3" wide 9/16" thick flooring for about 1/2 the cost as well.
3. Or of course I can buy a different wood species.

5" wide 3/4" thickness is about 7$/sq ft (is this even worth it? Should I just do some el cheapo oak?)

If you want oak, and cheaply, go to an architectural salvage place. Buy used for less than $2 per sg ft
