I live in Leicester MA, which is located in Central Massachusetts. I recently add a 18'x18' 3 season porch with 14' catheral ceiling to the back of my home (north side, only choice). It is approximately 3' off the ground on sonet tube pillars. I used R30 batt insulation in the ceiling and floor. On the underside of the floor the insulation is covered with a piece of thick poly and plywood. The 2x4 walls are insulated with R13 batt insulation. All the isulation is paper side in. The porch has 14' of electric baseboard heat evenly distributed in the porch. The (6) 4'x5' gliding windows and (1) 6' gliding patio door are Anderson 400 series. Which leads me to my question. Is it possible to use either unfinished or pre-finished hardwood flooring in the porch? Or is there a possibility of warping or excessive movement when the heat is off during the winter months? If I am not able to use this type of flooring, what would you recommend, Thank you.
