I have to do the flooring in my house some time before spring, I have already done some of it, and I need to clear it out and finish the home stretch and tie into the tile in the kitchen (I love this live-in remodel shit)

When I did the back room it was nice weather, so I laid it all down, cleaned it, and put the poly on in place, took 2 days to cure and I had all the windows and doors open with a little bit of residual stink. My plan this time was to pre-finish the boards in the barn so I could just go to town and be walking on it that evening. The problem is that the temperature is likely to be in the teens and twenties for the foreseeable future.

Will the poly cure properly that cold?

It isn't a huge deal to do just do it in place again, but I have to ship my family and the dogs over to my parents for 2-3 days while I keep the heat going, not ideal, but it would work.

45 degrees is too cold for expecting it to dry in 24 hours....
