    Well I've been off-line for awhile. After careful thought it is much less complicated to insulate well and seal the cracks then heat the garage above freezing.

    Horse matts friendly to tools and knees. Rock wool insulation said to not support mice and good fire protection. Tyvek barrier to deal with possible condensation and no need to paint. A free standing bench, 2X6 top, with a tool wall behind it, (3X6).

    Shop is a disaster but I'm promising pictures once build is underway.
    The mats we use at the shop are just plain rubber. So it sounds like they differ from the cow mats that Iamtooler mentioned, but perhaps only in texture. They are thick and heavy. Rolling carts over them is no problem. Although you might want to fashion a transition edge if you’re going to be rolling over the edges all the time.

      Smooth rubber is unbelievably slippery when wet.

        I’ll have a closer look at ours. I wouldn’t call them smooth. But I also wouldn’t call them heavily textured either but you make a good point
