It Depends ...

Hi Phebe,

It really depends on the degree/amount of moisture you have. If it's, basically, light condensation, then no. In this case, you could seal the floor and use a moisture-resistant glue. However, if the moisture is excessive (and that's a relative thing), then you may have a moisture problem. I'm sure you know that moisture has a hard time passing through/round materials like glue and tile. If the moisture is 'forcing' itself up through the floor, it could weaken the glue and loosen the tiles.

In short, it's hard to tell from here. IF you want to be safe (knowing that you might have a 'light moisture problem'), then I'd go the carpet route. Just go wall-to-wall and don't tack it down until you go through 4 seasons, you know what I mean? I wish I had more to offer.

My best to ya and hope this helps. (Sorry you got 'separated' from your original post ...)
