Wayne,
We've a minor problem..."Nuestra Casita" already weighs 2 tons!
I've seen marble counters in some of the "gee whiz" rolling mansions that would probably flatten a Casita's tires, but the stone flooring is possibly not as heavy. Interesting concept, now if we were willing to give up the generator and a propane tank......, oh well, guess we'll just have to continue living with carpet for the time being.
It does nice and sure will outlast the carpeting.

Reminds me of "The Long, Long Trailer," and Lucy's secret rock collection!

John Mc,
Can't believe I'd forgotten Lucy's collection
Doggone (and I wish they were gone) coyotes started a symphony about an hour ago and they are close enough that it is impossible to sleep. No respect I tell you,
they got no respect!

I'm sure this isn't real stone. I've seen many patterns in laminates or vinyl that look like these and didn't I read that he wrote "simulated" ?

You'll don't have to replace an axel or get rid of anything!

Take a look at my website at the kitchen floor. It's a floating floor that is easily disassembled should you have water problems (it was created in Europe for people who moved to and from apartments who wanted a portable floor!). There's no gluing, just a snap lock. You can put an edge around the perimeter if you like.

It's super easy to cut, easy to install, looks like tile or marble, whatever pattern you choose, and warm under foot.

www.studiogigi.net in the albums, in the kitchen!

Hey, Wayne, I looked a little closer, it is like a cultured stone, no? Will you brush on a sealant so it doesn't absorb and stain?
I use cultured stone on clients homes, gates, etc. It's a good product. Menard sells the plastic mould for this if someone wanted to make their own, but, I'm sure it would be much heavier?

It's veddy cool looking, Wayne!
