Radiant floor heat vs forced air in shop

Getting close to pulling the trigger on a 40x80 shop. We plan to live in the shop while the house is being built.
I was all in on floor heat until I realized it was going to cost 5k just for the 2" foam under the slab. Add piping and it gets up there fast.
I have 2 people who have done so new shops in the last couple years that didn't do floor heat and don't regret it. I have natural gas on site. Was thinking of doing a natural gas forced air furnace. Run ducts down towards the floor.
Am I making a mistake by cheaping out now?
