Interesting. I suppose I learned something new then. I would assume their slab house has a proper vapor barrier between the soil and the concrete. The added benefit would then be to have no extra subfloor height to contend with. Given the overall dryish North Texas climate, I can then see how this would work.

When I bought my home I foolishly looked into hardwood floors. That was when I thought all my house needed was a coat of paint in the bedrooms and living room. I disabused myself of such flooring plans quickly once I learned about costly repairs that required my attention. Anyway, the guy who gave me a quote at the time suggested a subfloor with vapor barrier and sleepers. He was obviously doing it the traditional way. Too bad for him that I didn't have any money then (or now, for that matter).
