Carpet in Basement
How’s everyone doing, I should just change my name to basement floor at this point. So I have the right set up I believe. 6mm poly, 1/2 inch eps on top, 1/2 inch plywood, followed by carpet. I’m in westchester county, NY, zone 4 I believe. Walls are not insulated. So my questions are:
1. can I use peel and stick carpeting on top of wood? Will this be too hard for toddlers?
2. is there a floor finishing I can put directly on eps and then use area rugs with padding (this is for kids playroom)
3. I want to build and insulate walls last. Any way I can loose lay 1/2 inch plywood so I can lift up later or do I insulate and build walls right over wood? Is there a flooring I can use such as hardwood that wouldn’t require me attaching to concrete?
Thanks as always
