in a couple of years we are hoping to build a home we'll live in from April to November
realistically as the years go by that time frame may shrink tp June to September
hoping to keep it simple and perhaps even totally "off the grid" solar/battery power, generator backup, wood heat
one thing we like in our current home is the tile floor areas, easy to maintain, looks good, almost bombproof to things like water and dog toe nails
but I'm wondering, what will happen to a tiled floor (we would probably go with BIG tile like 24x24) when the sub floor expands and contracts due to being left totally unheated when we pull pitch in the winter?
anyone have experience with a tiled floor they allow to freeze up when unoccupied?
