With more travel and open houses planned, this is the ideal time for us to make a big flooring change. Pergo TimberCraft +WetProtect is a perfect match for our traveling tiny house. What’s really appealing is that you can have the authentic look and feel of hardwood but with complete waterproof protection. It even has a lifetime guarantee. Unlike other laminate flooring products, TimberCraft uses twice as many unique plank designs that are hand-selected from premium cuts of wood from around the country. It’s virtually indistinguishable from real hardwood.
After all the paint dried, we cleaned our old floors as best as we could. We even dug dirt out from the flooring seams. Next, Christian laid the Pergo Gold underlayment over the old floors — used for sound, thermal and extra moisture protection. Fortunately, the TimberCraft flooring for our entire tiny house weighs less than 200 pounds—about half the weight of hardwood. That’s like adding a person! With tiny houses on wheels, you always need to keep track of your house weight to avoid overloading your trailer.
We are genuinely blown away by how beautiful the floors turned out. Like a pristine new hardwood floor but so much easier to install and maintain. With our next several months of travel planned, including multiple tiny house festivals, we will definitely be putting these new floors to the test. Stay tuned for updates from the road

My partner, Christian and I are traveling tiny house dwellers. Together we’ve been on the road two years for our documentary and community outreach project, Tiny House Expedition. We live, breathe, dream the tiny home community every day. This is our life and our true passion project. We are very grateful to be able to experience this inspiring movement in such an intimate way and to be able to share our exploration with all of you.
