Title: Re: Cottage Renos - Concrete Floors
Scott, Harold, & Matthew,
Thanks for the help.  I am not making any changes to the planks, just removing a wall below the second floor of the cottage.
This info is what I needed.

Gary:

Flexicore was/is a "brand" of precast concrete planks.  I believe they 
are not as prevelant as their used to be.

What specifically do you need?  I do have a Flexicore folder.  It is 
from around 1995 or so.  I will note that it only has planks that are 
24" or 20" in width, so I do not know how helpful it will be.

Regards,

Scott
