Finally getting to renovating our 100 plus yr old log house , doing the upstairs first. Across the house runs 6 by 4 beams that the boards for the floor lay on, I would like to rip these up as the floor is slanted and i would like to level it somewhat.My question is can i use just 3/4 inch plywood for the new floor the spacing of the beams is 42 inch centres or will it not be strong enough.Thnx

Can you see the floors from below?
Often times in log homes 1-1/2 X 6 T X G is used.
It would be to wide a span for 3/4".

Find a yard that does reclaimed barn wood, or wood out of structures, so you still have that weathered look on one side, but planed on the floor side. As for getting it level, you are best to get the structure level, not try to bandaid the problem.
