New carpet in hallway and on stairs (Nov 2009)

After review the Apt crew picked the “Tobacco” brown in the commercial carpet Behr’s offers. The price is

  • $532 to do the hallway alone
  • $1332.58 to do both hallway and stairs (stairs require pad and tack strips, glue in hallway is not acceptable on stairs.

The total is far in excess of what we can afford, especially if the one apartment also needs carpet. The total income from the three rented apartments after utilities means that this is the equivalent of many months rent.

My inclination is to do the hallway and the stairs but then do the apartment on our own after it rents (using the first months rent to pay for the new carpet).
