No hole.

The cost of someone to do it all is to much.

The first room is were a laptop will go.

The second room is were the scope will go.

So there is a very small chance of vibration.

very small chance of vibration? That remains to be seen - unless you have an update?  I have found that even with paving slabs laid on soil, if one's foot presses on the same slab that a tripod leg is resting on, it causes a disturbance at the eyepiece.  I would expect that If you have a telescope and a human at opposite ends of a raised wooden floor, the vibration transmission would be significant.  Some DIY observatory builders go to the lengths of isolating a concrete pier foundation from a cast concrete floor slab.

But if you are sticking to the plan you originally indicated, of observing remotely from inside the house, the flexing floor should not be a problem.

My floor does not flex much if any.

I put a digital level on the floor and didn't see much movement.

I have bought  3 anti vibration cups which are made by Celestron.

And my rubber floor goes down this weekend. 

It will be glued and stapled to the floor. And the is a railway sleeper under the floor.

I am trying to work on a few Nema 17 motors to move the roof.

If it works out, I will have no need to go in to the clubhouse when it's setup for that night.
