The fabric goes on the higher of the two furring strips. The 5 1/4 inch high baseboard goes over both furring strips and is mounted 1/2 inch off the floor so the carpet can get tucked under. Should be a picture in the thread somewhere.
they would rather have a gap then have to trim flush. All the new home construction in these parts has the gap. As for the tack strip it is intentionally mounted shy of the base board. Pad goes up to the strip the carpet goes over tack strip and dives into the gap nice and tighty. Some newbie guys figure they will put up the baseboard after the carpet, so the carpet layers put the tack strip close to the wall then when the baseboard goes in it traps the carpet, have fun changing it out in the future.
No, what do you think you are missing? BZbase did start a couple of threads in 2007/8 (under a different user name which will remain anonymous) where he solicited input on a room design and he included a couple of typical bare wall pictures of the raw space. He then purchased a comprehensive design from Dennis Erskine and that was the basis of the project. Edited by BIGmouthinDC - 8/20/13 at 8:34pm
bars are 42 inches tall, the pictures show a temp top, BZBase added granite. You can use full sheets of MDF we just used up some scraps from the build. The ends were a three layer sandwich of MDF/OSB and MDF. Did that to save the width over a framed out end.
