Extreme tiling


I'm building a sauna (wet) in Anchorage Alaska and I was considering a tiled floor. The sauna might go from -20 to 100+ degrees in a relatively short time and my concern is the grout cracking and the whole installation failing due to the temperature extremes. Is this do-able, or should I go with something mode flexible, like vinyl?

WOW! Big difference from NC. I would say that is the problem. Epoxy grout may be the answer. Never the less I would contact the grout and thinset manufacturers.
