Bradley Kemp's Profile

You may find there is a perfectly serviceable layer of shingles or clapboards under the asbestos, in which case you won't have the expense of new siding. In the 40s and 50s, those asbestos tiles were often installed over existing siding just to "modernize" an older house. That was the case with my 1911 house; I removed the asbestos tiles, exposing the original shingle siding, which was still in fine shape.

In most cases, I think a checkerboard floor looks better with a solid border -- perhaps half or two-thirds as wide as the checkers. It improves the transition to adjacent non-checkered floors, and allows one to avoid funny, tiny triangles at the edges of the pattern.
