To give you guys a better Idea, it is a simple native style rustic house, so not trying to be real fancy, but just want it to look nice without spending a lot of money.

Truth is, not many people other than ourselves will ever see it..

My son Chico is asleep..

Pour paint on the floor and let the kids go nuts rolling around in it.

Actually I am from Dayton Ohio, was just back there last year for a visit.

Spent New Years Eve with another forum member here.. Dan Dablay, felt like I was in Viet Nam.. Prolly 40+ Vietnamese at the party (there were only a few white guys there)

Was a great time!

I came over here to the islands 9 years ago this week, on a "don't know when I will be back trip"

Ended up meeting girl next door, got married about a year later after 6 or 7 months of chaperoned dates, now have 4 kids, and doubt I will ever live in the good ole USA again.

Let me know when you are ready to set up the Barn Raising in the islands meet!

I have thought about just paint..

Just searching for other cheap ideas still.

I will probably do the finished wood toung and grove flooring in time, but for now would rather spend the money in other places.

That is wife there, along with our two year old Amber that is hidden behind the foot board of the bed, you can barely see her head....

Before the night is over Chico will climb into bed also, and I will have to move him back since there is no room..

Our oldest Aaliyah age 7 sleeps downstairs with the maid and baby Steve.

I have seen that before, but always thought of it as something to cover a wall, and you could use thumbtacks to hang stuff.

I have not thought of it as flooring before, but can imagine it would be comfortable, if it can stand the wear.

Looks cheap so I will see if it is available here, nice Idea!

The Durability of cork flooring

Quote:
The durability of cork flooring is something that you will never need to worry about. One of the unique characteristics of cork flooring is that it has a “memory” and recovers well from compression, very much like a wine cork.

Cork flooring has been popular for use in public buildings such as court houses, churches, banks, libraries and kindergartens. The softness and compressibility, or give, of cork reduces the jarring action in the body that occurs while walking on regular hard flooring surfaces.

The durability of cork flooring is attributed to the peculiar cellular structure of the cork. The octagonal cells are thickly packed in a honeycomb fashion. This structure allows it to absorb impacts and regain its original shape after compression. High heeled shoes and slender furniture legs can lead to denting in cork flooring. In these cases, cork flooring will regain its shape. This feature of cork is referred to as 'memory'.

There are other secrets to encourage cork to recover from dents. Simply take a towel and dampen it with hot water (microwaving the towel in a plastic bag is a good alternative to boiling a kettle of water). Place the super-heated (yet mild/moderately damp) towel over the indentation. Allow the towel to sit in place for 1-5 minutes (the deeper the indent the longer the treatment). The indent will have recovered a significant amount of its memory by the end of the treatment.

To add to the natural durability of cork, Forna Cork Flooring products are factory finished with three layers of water-based polyurethane (PU) varnish imported from Germany. Our water-based polyurethane provides a clear satin finish. It is fast drying, odour free, and does not contain any Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
