Do you have any advice on how to make an isometric tiled floor?

Hey, thanks for your interest. I would probably build the floor to the size I wanted and then use the "Perspective" tool to make the floor isometric. Have a look at what images of isometric floors look like. One thing I noticed is the the corners are on a cross. The top and bottom corners are on a vertical line and the side corners are on the horizontal.

You could build the floor and match the corners to vertical and horizontal lines.
