Q: We are building a cabin in the mountains and I am looking at possibly installing in hardwood flooring. We will not be in the cabin during the winter and there will be no heat as we don’t have electricity. Would hardwood flooring work in a situation like this and if so, what type of wood?
A: Good question? I would think any wood floor could work provided there is not excessive moisture coming into the cabin. You might be better off going with a well dried soft wood and finish it with tung oil such as Waterlox. I would take it into the cabin and leave it sit for as long as you are able.
