Carpets...aka Getting Laid

I'm almost finished with the apartment finally.

One of the last steps has been installing the carpet.
Never done it before so it was learning as I go.
Probably one of the easiest things I've ever done.

Had to buy a 'carpet kicker (went through 3 cheap ones before spending the $85 on a good one (fucked the thing up anyway (bent the nails))) and rent a 'Power Stretcher'.
Also picked up a couple of special carpet knives.
I must say...having the right tools really aided in this job.
Even spending $150 on tools plus the carpet was only like $400 so I still saved around $1500 by doing it myself.

Anyway...I didn't take any in-progress pix...but here are a few shots of the finished job.
