Wanna try floorless on the cheap? Mountainsmith LT!
Got one off a member here a few years ago - put a stove jack in it - works great!
Not as much headroom as some of the other ones, but the price was right, and Iíve fit 2 guys plus gear.

I run the Seekoutside Redcliff when itís more than just myself. The stove is definitely a game changer in the nasty weather. We sat in snow and below freezing early this spring on a shed hunting trip and we were soooo hot in there! Yep, we had little chairs and a bottle of bourbon too. Had to open both doors and the top vent wide open for a bit because it was just so dang hot in there.
    You do get condensation, but eh, I just give the walls a quick wipe down and itís all good. I know it bothers some people, but doesnít seem to bother us much.
  I really like not having to take my boots off in my floorless too. Havenít had any bug or rodent problems as of yet, but that doesnít bother me to much either. I think my entire set up with center pole and steaks with stove and 8ft stove pipe Iím at just around 10 lbs. not bad for a Bitchin backcountry heated camp!
   How big where those steaks ? 12 oz New Yorks ?    :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:

I was in the exact same situation that you were in.  I decided to check out a company out of Forks Wa called LUXE.  They make Tipi style tents that are also stove compatible.  I went with their 3-man Hexpeak XL tipi, and it worked out great for me when i went camping up in the cascades scouting for some mule deer.  They do sell inner tents if you want to have a mixture of a tipi style and traditional style tent.  They're significantly cheaper than Kifaru and Seek outside tents, and as far as i can tell built just as well.  If you show up to their brick and mortar store, they do have a few tents that people have returned at a pretty good discount.  They also set up three different tents for me to experiment with when i drove over from Whidbey Island to check them out.  Their customer service is on point, and they were honest with me about any conerns i had.  It's well worth the drive over there if you have the chance just to see everything in person before dropping a few hundred bucks on something.
If only they were open on Saturday....
