I don't heat my cabin throughout the off season so whatever flooring I put down will be affected by the extreme cold.I installed loose lay in the living room which bubbled up alittle from the temps of this past winter.I'm going to put a new floor down in the kitchen but want to check my options.Anybody have any ideas on what would work best under the cold temps of winter?

we just have tounge and grove, been in since at least 1928, just leave gaps around wall and thick baseboard to allow expansion and contraction? I would stay away from laminate or something like that, linoleum would work no?

Tongue and groove will hold up in the cold. The downside is that in a kitchen, crumbs and dropped food fall into the grooves are are a pain to clean. After four years I tiled over the tongue and groove in my kitchen to make it easier to clean.
we put some laminate wood flooring in our cabin last year on the whole first floor. We separated each room with a threshold and it looks great. We do not heat our cabin when it is not in use and have had no problems. As stated just leave room around the edges. we used quarter round to cover the gap. It has been the best improvement and looks like it is going to last for several years to come. I highly recommend this product. we went with a close out 8mm flooring from homedepot and were able to do over 800 square feet for under 1100. look around and you can get some great deals.
We put laminate in our cabin and have had no problems so far. We did leave plenty of expansion room though. It kinda looks like hardwood, which is nice in a cabin.
We have the same and it's awesome. Super easy to clean and was easy on the wallet as well. We have had absolutely no problems with it and I would recommend it to anyone. We do not heat our camp all year either.
