Flooring? for Egg--

My wife and I just rented a house that has no concrete in the backyard, only grass. The landlord won't let us pour concrete, and we need a stable, fireproof material to put the egg on. I thought of floor tiles, but am afraid they might shift. Any suggestions as to what we can use? Thanks!

    How about a wooden base (plywood over 2x4's).. You could protect it with ss or a fire-proof mat.

    If you don't have a nest, 4 concrete blocks will work and get it to a higher elevation. ;)

    No telling how big you want it, but you can pick-up 24"X24" Pavers at Lowes or HD. 4 of those and you'd have a 4'X4' area for the egg. Depending on where you live and how long you want it to last. You might be able to get away with just building a frame (maybe the 4" high metal border type material. Throw in sand, level and and put the pavers down.

    A paver is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you all so much! :)
