Did you know you can make a floor out of pallets?  Using pallets for free, or very low price, you can put in a hardwood flooring.  Make sure you rent a large floor sander to get this nice smooth feel.  If you have a friend with a planer that would be even better.  Finish it off with  a clear coat on top to give it a shiny finish!  For ideas on where to get FREE or cheap pallets click here.

This home owner used wooden planks to get a beautiful floor for a fraction of the price!  Planks can be found at your local hardware store.

 This requires the same idea as the pallets, just a wider strip of wood.  Plane each piece or give it a good sanding.
