Default Studio help!!!

I live in Dallas and have been trying to work in my garage. I can't seem to make it work very well. There's never enough real light and it's either too hot and humid, too windy or too cold. I used to work inside in our other house. I had lots of windows and a tile floor and good ventilation. My only option for working inside here has a hardwood floor. Does anybody have any ideas on how I can cover the floor and make it safe? All of the indoor floors are wood.

Put tile down on a large piece of plywood for under torch area, this way you would not be putting holes in hardwood floors.

Or a piece of sheet metal.

Or cement board....

Then place a layer of 12 x 12 inch or so tile on top. Cement board by itself will not take long time abuse of a chair rolling over it. i.e. surface will break down over time. The tile acts as a good protection.

Home Depot and Lowes both have discounted tile for under a dollar per piece. Often in the 69 cents range. Or try the rehab store and perhaps Craig's List for odds and ends.

Or even a welder's mat.

Thanks everybody!!! All of those ideas are great and I will be able to do them. I just couldn't think of the best way. Brilliant!!I will pick one and begin. I'm so happy that I can be in the "light" again and with air.

Thank you. Hopefully I'll be posting soon.
