Houses in my area (central coast CA) have also approached (or at 500k) for a basic house. We got lucky in the real estate crash to buy one for pennies of what they're worth now.

Also you all may not know but Nipomo is often regarded as the most temperate place in the nation. That's averaging all days of the year, it's about 65 degrees. San Diego can be hot.

I know most people outside CA talk about the high costs and all, but I grew up here. it's all I know. I guess you just learn to live with less, unless of course you're rich.

Well I've invested in a klinch-it tool, and clips. And from what you guys are saying..

I'll go with the coil springs. When I finish my loveseat I'll be sure to have a good rest and test out the comfort.

Appreciate the input.

FYI Kody: San Diego is a beautiful place. It's also one of the most expensive places in the nation.

Though even with the traffic there, I would probably live there if I could. I had never been and my wife and I took a little vacay down there. Stayed right downtown and went to the ballgame, only a couple blocks away. It was awesome.

I'm not really sure Paul - I normally don't just sit on a sofa. I lie back, etc. I could pay more attention next time.
I've also never had a coil-spring piece, so I don't really have anything to compare it to.

Also I am not sure if this makes a difference - I'm on the lighter side. Not quite 12 stone.

Alright. I see everyone's point here.

It's difficult when so many people see a price and don't ask questions.

We have a sofa in our house that I bought before I began this. It was not a cheap piece - over 2k.
It uses ziggers and 6" HR foam. I find it comfortable.

After some thought, and doing the coil spring tying thing, I have to be honest:
I don't see a big deal in using the better quality ziggers. Has anyone ever been asked "please use hand-tied coil springs and not those zig-zag springs." seriously.

gene that's a cool brochure. 1930s! hard to believe.

According to it: Supr-Loop is ideal for backs and under coil spring units

Typical. Factory was like 'who cares! they'll never know'

Here it is

I was thinking 60s because it was originally a purple damask fabric. But now I'm thinking maybe it was more like 80s. They were filthy too, I was envisioning that they were in some of bar, or maybe party room.

I was taking apart a chair and noticed that the zig zag springs had much larger space between them. It's a chair from the 60s I assume. I thought all zigs were the same size?

Will post photo in a bit.

I would agree with that Steve. I cringe when I see black stripe used for the seats. I have even seen youtube vids by pros demonstrating the springs using black stripe.

I misread it, that you were using extra synthetic burlap for the repair.

To me all synthetic burlap is just woven polypropylene, and then brushed on one side to avoid squeaks.
My loveseat used this, and they were probably predicting sagging, so they used tension rods underneath to help support.
I also figured they have some machine or device to help stretch it tight since I doubt that could be done tight enough by hand.

I thought you guys didn't use synthetic burlap?

I think almost anything related to petroleum is a mystery.
But, if you were the manufacturer you have to decide, what's the most the logical thing to do?

With foam, they know it is widely used and nobody is changing to anything else (latex?) yet so they can increase the price and probably not get a reduction in sales.

I would be really curious to know what the big furniture makers pay though, and how much control they have.

What a smart idea. Much easier than marking out with chalk and ruler.
