What trim pieces? You mean around where the carpet meets the laminate?

Yep, where the carpet and laminate meet. So after I posted for help it hit me right in the head. If I had a perfect square corner it would be a 90, so I would cut the trim at 45. Well I had this adjustable protractor that came up with 50, so I just divided that and came up with a 25 degree angle. I went out and cut it and it worked. Sometimes it helps to think out loud. I'll be doing the trim tomorrow, unless my thought process is wrong. If it is let me know before I cut the trim.

The moulding (my finger is pointing to this one)where the laminate starts at the bottom is a carpet cover moulding that was modified by removing the "ear" that is on the bottom of this moulding that normally would be put unto a plastic receiver. All mouldings are secured with Liquid Nails. The sides that are covered in laminate were done by glueing the laminate to the side walls with Liquid Nails. After you have everything in place make sure you seal all joints in the corners and on any mouldings with clear silicone sealant. The black strips are Velcro that holds our step carpet in place and removes for cleaning.
did you place the laminate under the the stair nose moulding or did you but the laminate up against the moulding? are your batteries under the steps?

The laminate goes under the moulding. On DPs the batteries are in a separate bay on the pass. side toward the rear.

did you leave the 1/4 inch expansion area under the moulding or did you just not worry about this...we are working on ours and are just trying to learn as we go. in looking at the picture it looks like the floor is the same height as the moulding..does your moulding stick up higher than the laminate... you did such a good job. thanks

I cannot say about the 1/4" expansion as I didn't do the install. The mouldings do stick up above the flooring but it's not an issue as far a walking over them.

Faye, When I did my top stair bull nose, I did leave the 1/4" space for expansion. The bull nose (stair edge) is designed to butt up against the stair edge, then to lay directly on the subfloor and then it lays over the laminate, this is where you leave the space.
Hope this helps.

I have finally completed my project, would I do it again? Yeah, but I would lay the laminate in the same direction as the MH, front to rear, instead of at an angle. WHY? Because cutting the angles for the edge trim was a headache for untalented woodworker me, I can see and do 45 degrees but after that I'm lost. I still have one area that needs to be cut to the correct angle, but it's going to have to look funny until I get to Yuma and have a Winter buddy redo it.
I'll post pics later after I clean up the MH.

Faye, use the "Reply to Thread" not the quick reply. When the reply box opens you will see a "paper clip" symbol. Click on it and you will then be able to browse for you photos. Upload and submit.

Faye, Dan didn't mention that when you do that you won't see the actual pic, only a few words. But it's there.
