Well, we got our first bid on carpet. Ouch.
I guess the fact that I am wanting to use a pattern carpet and given the dimensions of my room, there just ends up being a lot of waste. The bid was for Stanton Lake Boden in black and was $2340. I have about 260-270sqft of space to carpet, but have to buy 27ft (which is over 350 sqft). At $4.08 a square foot, thats a lot of scrap.
I called one other place in town, and their price was nearly identical for the carpet itself.
Pad was a 40oz synthetic fiber at $220
Install was $448
Freight was $65
Tax $133

I also checked some of the wholesale places down in Georgia. They were not much better at $3.73 per square foot, but then you had to deal with delivery.

Got a couple of other places to check, but I don't have a good feeling that its going to be much better.

Ouch indeed! 

 

Is the scrap largely the result of a pattern on the carpet and 'roll width'?   I might haven't decided 100% on carpet, but if the patterned dynamic creates that kind of waste, I"ll need to make sure to look at the repeat patterns & roll width in my selection process.

Kevin,
You are correct. The size of the roll (13'2") with respect to my room, and the pattern itself, are what is causing the problem. I've thought about going with something simpler, but I just don't think it would do the room justice. I'm going to see if they are willing to work a bit on the price and hopefully we can come to a deal.

Another amazing theater! Not sure how I missed it over the last 4 years, but great to see it nearing completion.

Carpet is IN

Some updates!
We finally got the carpet installed. I ended up just ordering direct from a distributor in Dalton GA and saved about $500 all together. The guy did a great job installing. The room looks so much better. We ended up with the Stanton Lake Boden in black along with 40oz synthetic pad.

Sorry the pictures are so jacked up. I cannot seem to figure out this new editor..

Aaaaaaannnd DONE!

Chairs are here as well! Took them much longer than expected, but it worked out okay. The chairs themselves feel great. They are the RowOne Applause. No complaints after spending about 4 hours watching movies last night. They came with a 5 year Montage extended warranty which covers just about anything that could go wrong. Very happy with these seats.

Looks great! I like the carpet! Chairs look comfortable as well. What made you decide to go with that brand?

Thanks.
Our decision was based on wanting to get 4 chairs in each row. Finding something that would fit those dimension constraints was tough. It came down to these or the Jive. The Jive were out of my price range. I'm very happy with how these seats feel. Very well constructed, very well packaged, and a great warranty.

Fantastic results. Now that I see the end I need to go back to the beginning to see how you got here.

Craig,
Beautiful space.
I can really appreciate how much time an effort has gone in to your build. It definitely shows in the finished product. I hope you get a write up in Electronic House, or right here on our own front page..
Congrats on a fantastic room!

Thanks guys. I really appreciate the comments. Although there was a ton of inspiration from this forum, I think I took most of my design queues from Mario and his Cinemar Theater, although admittedly his is MUCH higher scale than mine.
This was the first weekend where it was completely finished, and we took much enjoyment in it. My wife and I even spent some time just listening to music yesterday and it was fantastic. I still need to work on the lid of the bottom cabinet to address some vibration at high volumes, but that is just a nuisance right now.
