Had to move this since I was so hammered last night I posted it in the wrong place. lol
I picked up an emergency carpet job this afternoon for tomorrow morning. The regular installer backed out at the last moment. Nothing fancy just some Design Materials woven sisal Sisalon 6706 Apprentice, synthetic http://www.dmikc.com/
. Drop room 232 sf at a buck twenty five a sf.
So i get there this morning, carpet is still on it's way...what me pick up crapet
. The lady of the house is cleaning up the room about a 17' 6" x 13' 2'. But of course it is boarded in slate tiles with lots of floor to ceiling glass windows and doors. The lack of space's for my big butt powerstretcher is worrying me.
Crapet gets here and it's almost short, I got an extra 3/4 of an inch. The company that measured it bailed on installation, God knows why they are even allowed to order Design Materials in the first place. I think their installers were just afraid of the lovely carpet. hee hee
So the stuff is thinner than a cushinbac vinyl., won't stretch sideways at all. Luckily I brought lots of commercial strip. Took 4 hours with trimming and tucking to the stone and sealing all the edges along the tile. The owner is an architect that is building his own jobs plus owns a solar company...score! Walked away with 350 bucks for the one room addition at his house. Love those emergency,,,gotta get'r in tomorrow jobs.
I got some pic's I might post tomorrow. I'm beat, plus I had to go measure all the rubber in a Sports Authority after the install. Wheres my beer!
