In 1950, Oscar Cowan and Peter W. Johansen held a grand opening in Downtown Modesto at the corner of 13th & J Streets for House of Carpets,"The home of distinctive carpeting." With a population of 15,000, those were the days that you could call the operator to place your call and much of the town shared a single "party line" to make calls. But Modesto grew quickly, and so did House of Carpets.
In 1965, House of Carpets relocated to 1120 McHenry Avenue at Roseburg and has remained there ever since. In their newly completed building, the company established a commercial flooring division and began offering all types of hard surface floor coverings. House of Carpets has sold and installed millions of square feet of commercial flooring in valley businesses. Everything from professional office buildings and government offices to health care facilities, schools. and even industrial plants.
