Are Baseboards Okay on a Concrete Slab?

We are building a new house.  The first floor has a concrete slab which we stained and sealed. Can we put wooden baseboards, which are primed and painted, directly on the finished concrete?

There's no reason you can't, assuming your new home is properly graded to avoid moisture around its foundation.  The most common way baseboards become water damaged in a situation like this one is when moisture gets up into that concrete slab.
