I think I mis-understood you plywood post???
you can just unbolt the boards and bolt the plywood on top...

I meant use aluminum sheet as a "sub-floor"...
unbolt/remove the floor and put the aluminum sheet under the wood...
it's just a moisture/air barrier,,,no reason it can't be 2 overlapped/caulked sheets if needed

those boards may well be white oak and would look great finished and exposed!!!!
so I would go the "sub-floor" protection method...

if you stop at Lowes and look at the aluminized mylar (very tough tiny bubbles) bubble wrap in the insulation dept you will see how it would "suspend" carpet for max possible air circulation for dry and least odors...

(for temporary? and cheap?),,,while you are at Lowes pick up a piece of rubber backed short nap indoor/outdoor carpet and just screw secure it some along the edges to the boards so it could come out for cleaning....
indoor/outdoor is a moisture, air, and sound barrier!!!

LOL,,,then go find a piece of that 70's long pile shag carpet to lay on top of the capet pile up indoor/outdoor (which will suspend the shag)....

to many methods options unless you define what you want for finished...
