As I mentioned before, we went through Home Depot for carpet. We had a little bit of an issue but it all worked out. Bill took the day off to be at home for the install, as we were required to have an adult present.
Install went off without a hitch and we love it!
We are so, so, so glad we went with the thickest pad that they offer. Totally worth it. The carpet is wonderfully soft. The carpet that we went with is Ryedale II in French Creek. Those together make it nearly impossible to tell they're on top of cement.
Behr loves it too...! He thinks its great to be able to chase all his toys and not slide across the floor. Plus all of the room to just run and not run into things...
The basement is so close to done. We just have doors to go in, paint to be touched up, and the plumbing in the laundry room to wrap up.
