I spent this past weekend knocking out a few unfinished house projects. Finally. The half bath sink plumbing has been disconnected basically since I gutted the room back in October ’09. Installed a new sink, faucet, and p-trap. No issues. I had been putting this off due to a busy work schedule and some iffy looking inlet pipes connections, not wanting to open a potential can of worms with a short work window.

I also installed the hallway carpet. We picked up a cheap carpet remnant and some pad forever ago that’s been sitting in a roll in one of the bedroom, occasionally serving as a dog bed/chew toy. Here’s Trammell helping to weigh down the wrinkles.

Somehow carpet installation seemed just esoteric enough that I never bothered to take a stab at it. But then this past Friday I was sitting at my desk at work thinking about the brain credentials of a few the carpet installers I’ve run into over the years and realized that there was no way I couldn’t figure out whatever needed to be figured out. As you can see below, the end result was reasonably competent.
