    Trying to convert shed into the office.

    Thinking of putting sonic gold laminate underlay over a shed floor which is made of pressure treated timber ( had some small gaps between, which I filled with silicon), and linoleum on top of it.

    Idea to use laminate underlay for a bit of insulation and as vapor barrier as it has that golden aluminum layer, and vinyl to keep it resistant to wet shoes or so, but not sure will it be really cold floor.

    Any issues with this approach or advices ?

    Shed is sitting on concrete blocks, underneath is just ground covered with anti-grass sheets, so no real vapor barrier underneath shed, hence the idea for laminate underlay (which I have spare)

    Thanks in advance

    Vinyl flooring needs specific vinyl underlay. Laminate underlay is too thick and soft
