    I was asked to finish a job that another installer started. He glued down 40 oz. fiber cushion , with multi-purpose adhesive 😳
    Then found the carpet cuts were short. The customer did not want the installer back in their house.
    They needed it done on a Saturday.
    127 sq. yards ( 39’ x 27’). I had help to get the materials inside and laid out.
    I did the rest alone ( including steps)
    This is the first double stick I have ever done without tack strip and seam tape.
    I like to use koolglide double stick tape.
    It’s very hard not to get glue on the carpet or your fingers, with the 1/8” U notch trowel.
    Wouldn’t have been a bad layout if it wasn’t for the lally columns every 8’.
    I could have used a pattern stretcher on this one. I used my power stretcher with the cotton head and concrete stay nails.

    Oh the horror of my memories of doing carpet. Was it a unitary back?
