comment Why do we fit skirting boards to collect dust?
Ah, but I like the way my carpets HIDE the dust, rather than display it! (Although, when you lift a carpet, it does make one want to vomit....)

@Comintern I guess you are referring to the way the skirting board needs to conceal the join between the end of the wooden flooring and the wall (which would collect dust!). With carpets, this wouldn't be an issue.

comment Stripping parquet floor glue to install underfloor heating
House was built 1959, and the neighbours have the same parquet, so I do think it is original. I hadn't considered the need to insulate UNDER the underfloor heating. Maybe I can just dig up the middle of the floor, and ignore the 1m border around the edge?

comment Stripping parquet floor glue to install underfloor heating
The floor is concrete which, I assume, sits on the bare earth. The wall cavities are already insulated. What more can I do?
