Installing hardwood next to carpet
I will be installing hardwood in a room with three walls. The fourth side will be met with carpet. I plan to start at the far wall and work to where the carpet will be. How do I end the last row of planks? I was told that in a standard installation, with the wood meeting 4 walls, I would face nail the final row. But in this case, it will meet carpet and will not be covered with baseboard. Also, do I need to cut off the tongue from the last row?

How is the carpet attached?

Alot of times they'll make a finish trim piece that's got the grove on one side and either tapered down or bull nosed or something to finish the end off.
