So they just came to measure for our carpet, turns out that if they put the seams where I'd like them (under the seating) there would be a ton of wasted carpet to the tune of $400. I don't think I can justify spending that much money just to move the seams to a preferred location but it's really going to suck having them in a high traffic area.

I wouldn't worry too much about the seams. They arr actually stronger and.more durable than the rest of your carpet.

I agree with Nick, as long as it isn't berber... I have wool berber and there is a seam in my hall way that has drove me nuts from day one.

They probably didn't use the right seaming tape. If they had used Concord 2000, then the seam should be invisible with no peaking.

With a good quality carpet, and installer, it should go in virtually looking seamless.

Well, the carpet isn't berber but it is a loop style carpet. The guy that did the measuring did say loop carpets can show the seams more than "regular" carpets.

:P

Update

Well I finished the last significant work item in the basement today. I grouted the glass tile back splash for our bar area. Carpet gets installed Wednesday. I think after that's in I'll finally feel good about everything. I've been so tired lately that it's making me not give a crap about the state of the project.

So now I can start moving my HT equipment in, the new TV has been ordered and I think I may finally order myself some new Axioms (M80, VP180 & QS8s) to treat myself a bit!

I hear ya about being tired enough to not give a crap... I was stuck in a rut for a while myself. Now things are just stalled out for the most part for at least one more week. My oldest daughter graduates from high school this coming Sunday and the big party is the say before. So much to do yet for that. Then I am taking a week off from everything... It will be the first real break from the craziness in over a year. And then I will get back to the finishing touches for myself. Hang in there Ben.

Hi Ben,

Seem like you are nearing the final stages of your project, can't wait for the next set of pics. I also will be purchasing the same Axiom toys for my HT room a little later this year, can hardly wait til then.
