Engineered wood on a floor in a cabin


I would like your help/opinion on this: I have a lake cabin that I want to use carpet and engineered wood on the floors. Since it is at the lake, I do have sand that comes in when people come into the cabin. Even though they brush their feet, sand still gets in.

Mistake or should be ok? The wooded area will be at an entry way from the lake and in the kitchen/bathroom area.

Should be ok with that... If there's room widen the wood floor area so there's a definate good spot to remove shoes and leave beside the door

I'd never warrenty that job. #1 a wood floor in a bathroom is not a great idea, and knowing there's gong to be sand on it being ground in may be a maintaince issue.
Any chance you would concider sheet linolium?
My dad has a house on the lake and took out all the carpet long ago because my mother had to vacuum 3 times a day. He went with linouium and it's been down for a good 20 years and still looks fine and that's with 11 grandchildren and hundreds of guest over the years. Spill a drink, wipe it up, run the broom around once a day and it's cean enough.

Sorry, missed the bathroom part..... Vinyl would be a better choice for the bathroom

What is involved in putting sheet vinyl down?
How will hold up in cold environment?
At this point I have the osb sub floor.
What would I need to put down over the sub floor?
