The other thing on my mind is taking out the vinyl floor completely and lay very thick tatami mats like in old Japanese homes over the subfloor. Not fastened down so they could be removed to shake out and sweep the subfloor as needed. Any of the inevitable leaks will be able to dry out instead of being trapped under the vinyl.[/QUOTE]

fascinating idea. you would have to have the tatami custom made... (Is that even possible in the USA?)

my ex and I had some custom mats made while we were stationed in Okinawa. (To fit a raised platform for some furniture hubby built that was a blend of East/West.)

while tatami are removeable..they really aren't very "shakeable" as they are heavy and stiff. You would HAVE to be able to let them dry thoroughly in sunshine if they did get wet, otherwise you would have mold big time.

the decrease in over head height might be noticeable. (traditional mats are close to 2 inches thick.)

lastly, the smell of fresh cut straw is heavenly. Even after 20 years, the scent was still there and was wonderful.

Very strong and incredibly light and impervious to water, but you have to drill through and support from behind. It has zero screw holding strength.
Presume you are talking about the honeycomb composite stuff? I can imagine it would not hold screws well due to the nature of its construction.

But other companies have recently used other types of rot-impervious flooring although think at least one of them has now gone belly up - Evergreen I think?

Not sure if this - or other reasons caused their early demise! The product sound interesting to me and I was sorry to see them go under without really getting of the ground!

There must be a way!!
