Doghouse carpet needs tp be replaced

We have just about picked out our new allure floor from home depot, but still don't understand how one gets the damn carpet on doghouse and our is a rather large size.

When we start to get ready for carpet removal we will get a photo album started

Is this what you mean? This is excellent for gluing carpet in place.

Ok maybe the question should have been what kind of carpet, and I didn't seem to find carpet newsy enough to mold

doghouse carpet install

We had our motor home recarpeted and the ONLY way the doghouse carpet in our unit can be applied is glued.

I have only done a couple. The best advice is cheaper carpet. The higher priced the carpet is, the better (and thicker) the backing. The best advice is, go to a carpet center and try to bend the carpet. The easier it is to bend, the easier it is to work with.

Make sure you get the closed loop carpet. I bought the open loop and now I have to replace it. Open loop if you get a snag the whole row will come out. Just like Berber carpet will do.

Well you know we still haven't covered that damn doghouse yet. The floor and couch and chairs are great and maybe I will get off me ass and take some pictures now
