condition: good
size / dimensions: 3.25 x 36 x .5
Approximately 150 sq ft of solid, old wood, tongue and groove boards. I believe it is oak. Please see pictures.

The boards are 1/2" thick, 3 1/4" wide (not including the tongue), and most are 36" long. Once again, see pictures. There are a few smaller, angled, or gapped pieces but probably less than 10 of the approx. 190 total pieces are a non standard size.

Here is everything I know about it:

I purchased it from an estate sale in the Ryan Place neighborhood of Fort Worth around 18 years ago.
I was told the boards were originally installed on the parlor ceiling of a historic home in the Fort Worth hospital district. The boards had been stored in the rafters of a shed for 30+ years before I bought them from the estate sale, making them at least 50 years old at this point, likely much older.
I've kept them in storage up until about 2 months ago where I had to move them outside, stacked off of the ground on saw horses and covered.

I have no way to verify where they were originally installed, but as you can see from the pictures, they are absolutely beautiful and most are in great shape for their age. Look at that wood grain on the untreated side.

We were planning to use the boards for the ceiling of our back patio when we built our home, but we instead decided to enlarge the area and didn't have enough material to cover the entire ceiling.

The boards will likely need to be stripped and refinished. I'd say 95% or more of the boards are straight, but there are a couple that came into contact with the ground over the years and have warped.

Regardless, you would be hard pressed to find old wood construction material like this anywhere, especially 150+ sq ft of it. It will make an absolutely stunning ceiling, accent wall or floor.

If this doesn't sell relatively quickly, I'm probably going to ship it up to family in the PNW. Or I might end up donating it to a local historical group.
It's likely worth a considerable deal more than the $650 I'm asking for it.

Texts are preferred, but feel free to call me if you like.
