We are off-grid in a place that gets 6 feet of snow a year (i.e. cold). Plus, the dirt gets everywhere. And, we would like to get a dog and cat, too. (We've never had pets.)
So, I am wondering what sort of flooring for the house we should get. Our home is unfinished and we need it all!
The kitchen, I think we are going with that laminate type that they put grout on to make it look like tile. I figure it is warmer on the feet. We sorta need it to be different than the next room b/c we cannot do the kitchen floor at this time.
So, what should get for the living area, bathrooms, and bedrooms? I am leaning toward wood with area rugs because they are easier to clean... just sweep. Plus, I don't have to turn the generator on to vacuum. However, carpet seems like a nice lovely idea...
Do you think wood is a good idea given the climate, location, dirt, (should I mention evidence of mice :( ) and pets?
