Not sure how much home do-it-yourself you do, but a few tips about doing a new project when you have no experience.
1. Budget three times more time than you think you need.
2. Don't skimp on the tools.
3. If you get frustrated take a step back cool down and go back to work when you feel better.
4. Try as hard as you can to not take any shortcuts and pay attention to details.

Have fun, and sleep well at night in your death trap of a house

Could you buy a bunch of stuff with the gift cards, then return them for cash?

5. Measure twice, cut once....especially with carpet.

Not at Depot, at least. I've returned stuff I bought on a gift card, and gotten a brand-new gift card in return.

The law only requires the test if the contractor will be disturbing more than 6 square feet of painted surface.

In a carpet install, this might include removal of the floorboards. If there is no need to remove the floorboards, or if there aren't any (maybe because you've already removed them) they shouldn't need to test.

In many cases, the treatment for lead paint is just to be sure it is properly sealed (not removed).
