cold floors

If it is possible, I would start by insulating the
area underneath the floor in the unheated parking
space. This will help keep the cold air from gravitating
upwards. You could then concentrate on the upper part of
the floor. Keep in mind that you will be changing the
elevation of that floor from the rest of the house.
Check with carpet manufacturers. At one time they
sold insulated padding for this very purpose. It was
very popular in basements. Before giving an absolute
answer on the upper part of the floor, you must decide
on what type of flooring that you are going to choose.
Check also on the floating wood floors that are sold
in all of your major hardware warehouses. They also
are laid with an insulated pad. GOOD LUCK!!!!
