You made your floors out of WHAT??? Money Saving Ideas for your Tiny House/Cabin

"POOL LINER FLOORING FOR YOUR HOME, CABIN, or KIDS FORT!?"

Being installed: In this photo the flooring and baseboard trim (to hide and tack down the edges has yet to be installed). 

Here's an idea we toyed with at our last workshop in MA- and one I've never seen done before. My neighbor (fellow salvage enthusiast) thought of this- "What if we take my old metal above-ground pool walls, and use them as flooring?". Well, we did, and it works pretty darn well, its 100% recyclable, costs us NOTHING, and looks pretty wild! I do recommend putting down a layer of flooring padding (the thin foam rolls) before laying out these sheets- it'll minimize any noise.

SO, if you're into thinking outside the box/going the bizarre (and affordable) route with your home, here's something to consider, as above-ground pools are thrown out CONSTANTLY! 

This shot's from our not-yet-finished cabin "The Relaxshack", which also features a 100% free and salvaged back wall- what I've dubbed "The Wild Wall"…..

Here's a video showing and explaining this colorful, and cost-effective technique….

These are ideas, alongside 1045 more, that we'll be demonstrating, discussing, and IMPLEMENTING in a hands-on/get-dirty manner at our Memphis, TN Relaxshacks.com Workshop- April 11-13th
