The Carpeting of Gormenghast


The bare plywood floor, with one hasty coat of varathane, has been serviceable, though not very elegant. Kind of an "early shed" fashion statement.

We thought: nothing like a little broadloom to class the joint up. So when our friends Ian and Marie decided to add wood floors in their home, I jumped at the chance to grab the carpet they were taking out, as it was in good shape.


Now that's classy. Wall-to-wall broadloom, including underpad, in the wilds of Gormenghast. The leftover bits (not shown) were later put to good use as a welcome mat, under chairs and so on.

There's even a small piece left for the privy, once I secure it against weasel access.
