Looking for some kind of mat or other DIY contraption to deaden vibration when exercising.

When I jump rope, my whole apartment shakes. The banister, the windows, you name it, it rattles. Tried in the kitchen, instead of the living-room carpet, and it's (predictably) worse. The only time that's convenient for me for exercise is ~5am, so I need a way that won't bother the neighbors or wake up the kids.
I've read this thread
, (mostly about noise) in which folks recommend just finding different workout options.
Is there anybody out there with any experience with any type of mat or other vibration-dampening contraption that one could use? I tried dragging my standing-in-the-kitchen mat into the living room, and it helped a bit, so I'm wondering about some combination of mats, or maybe there's something purpose built for this?
