Re: Building over carpet
And this will affect the fit, finish, and longevity of the drywall. It's not that big a deal to mark where the wall will lay and cut the carpet along the centerline of it. Roll the carpet back out of the way, build and finish your wall, and reset the carpet. If you can't figure out how to stretch/lay it yourself, it won't be that expensive to have someone do it for you.
