I'm a software engineer pretending to be a handyman, so bear with me. I'd like to know if double-sided carpet tape will work as I expect. Here is more context. I have an unfinished attic with a plywood floor:
In this half of this attic I want to put high pile plush green carpet. I found these 6' x 5' IKEA carpets which look great and are cheap. My plan is to buy 14 of them and tile them across the floor like so (my photoshop job is not to scale, it will take 14 to completely cover the area):
The back of these carpets does not have any padding. It's woven, see here:
So I'm planning to buy a couple roles of this foam carpet padding and simply lay it out on the ground. I was not planning to staple it down. Then I'll tile the 14 IKEA carpets on top and at all the seams I'd use this double sided tape to connect the edges of carpet together and stick them to the carpet padding.
Will this tape work as I expect? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Roberts-Indoor-Outdoor-3-in-x-15-ft-Double-Sided-Carpet-Tape-Roll-50-605-12/100645279
Does my overall plan sound sane? I'm sure there are a couple things I'm oblivious to which will make this not work as I hope so I appreciate any advice or suggestions!
