for that particular manufacturer, it appears that conduit is required (per their instructions). http://radiantfloorwarming.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/DS6059_installguide1.pdf I just installed one from a different manufacturer that said you could put the cables in wall for renovations, but needed conduits for new installations (? go figure).
After I posted this, I found an install video that shows exactly what you're saying with the wires being snaked up the wall. For a new installation they're saying 3/4" for the feed and 1/2" for the sensor. ???

FWIW, I spoke to tech support at Laticrete and they said the conduit is shown for areas that may require it by code. It would have been clearer if they noted that some areas may require conduit. I think the same company must do the instructions for Laticrete and IKEA.

Nope. Both the sensor wire and cold leads terminate on the stat. I either use a handy box or a 4 X 4.

With a pull string I just put one of these in the box during rough-in:

The opening in the back of the t-stat base looks like it's below the box so the sensor wire would come out just below the bottom of the box and feed into the base. What do you think?
