Title: Carpet question
Post by: 300rag on June 11, 2012, 05:29:33 PM
I am in the process of installing my new carpet and need some info. Does anyone have a picture of the carpet edge at the sill plate? Where does the carpet stop?

Under the plate far enough that it has a clean look, usually right around two inches in.

If you have one, steam the rug down before you put the sill plates on.

That's about right
 

Steve, sounds like your brain is functioning pretty good. I hadn't thought of steam. Heat gun, sure, but steam, pretty good, I gotta  say.

Now that's a pal, and a positive role model for all of us to follow.
 
Good Job!

Workin, movin, falling asleep at da sewing machine....

Pebble Beach time at the resto shop.... 3 cars going by mid August....

gotta be moved into my new house by mid-July....

working on interiors at night to pay for the move and 7 grand worth of root canals and caps I need now(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley7.gif)

haven't had time for a car show or cruise night yet this year....

with all the rain, been trying to keep the back acre of grass from growing past 12 inches(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)

time on the pooter has been limited mostly to weather, news, and home improvement related

on the bright side, I replaced the wrecked Eldorado with a red 2001 Chrysler 300M


but all this pales in comparo to Polaraco's sitch....how have ya been doin Steve?

I feel the same way.
 
Gotta get the family moved into an apartment so I can tear into the house and rebuild it.
 
Got the garage done, flat roof hot torched today (Yippeeeeee).
 
Electricity gets relocated from the house to the garage by Tuesday.
 
Time for  2 garage doors, one window (casement, of course), and car garage door.
 
I have new and old termite damage and expect this house to last longer than the 85 years it did the first time, so doing it right once.
 
But I still worry about Steve, haven't heard from him all day long, and it's the weekend.
 
On top of that, Happy Father's Day to all!

rexus31 has done a good job instead of explaining in linear fashion. Kudos to you, even I got the concept cleared.
