I was being sarcastic about the carpet.
I would never install it either.
The PO used carpet to hide the floors amd wall paper to hide the walls in my house.
My personal opinion of your tile job is to peel off the old tile and have a fresh base to lay the new ones. Doing something even a bit half cooked always comes back to bite you.
It's also good to see the condition of the floor boards by removing all the old stuff.
