I know -roll up your pantlegs, he's thinking again. Here's the deal - according to the story, some guy spilled linseed oil and didn't clean it up, and by the time he did, it had turned into linoleum right? Okay, we all like quilts and women just keep making them. So WHY NOT sew together a quilt (or a block of one) spill linseed oil on it, walk away and see if it turns into floor covering? Wouldn't a quilted living room rug be cute? :)

you know that may not be too far fetched. we are gonna use our spoil frm diggin the basement out, the soil iz 90% clay so we will screen it and make a slip (mud) and pour it into the foundation over the radiant heating system it will be preaty thin so it will level itself. then we will seal itwhen it drys with linseed oil and dryed blood. this will make a nice adobe floor. I may try to put some fabric on the floor and try what you said, will probably try it in one of the out buildings first to see how it works. thanks for the idea.

That's interesting. Will it crack from the heat? Are you pouring over Mother Earth of some kind of fill?
Just curious.
