Doug Fir was common in the American West, as Pine was here in the East. This was our bedroom in our 1910 Craftsman in Eagle Rock. Bathrooms in the Southwest often had wood floors. We replaced the vinyl tiles with Doug Fir when we performed our restoration. Our entertainment room also had Doug Fir flooring and once restored, it looked beautiful with the Persian rug. We repaired and refinished the floors this home on the historic register in Los Angeles. Like ourselves, its owners were preservation advocates. They recreated a kitchen as it might have been when the house was built in the teens. Yes, the stove and refrigerator both work!
