I'm putting in crown molding along the lower edge's of the wall, should I do it before or after the carpet/laminate is put into place or if before how high do I place it on the wall?

I think you are referring to baseboard molding. Crown molding goes up against the ceiling and wall. 3/8 to 1/2" is the usual gap depending on how thick your carpet or flooring material is. You may want to ask the flooring company or installer. Good luck.

I stay at 1/2'' every time and have never had a complaint from any carpet installers or customers.
