Now carrying 85 pieces or drywall to the basement will be a real joy!!!
The rough ins, were well................rough!! They ended up being a bout a foot off for the "plans" so we had to dig them up ourselves and move them in order to fit a bathroom. The toilet would have been about 4 inches from the wall! And the toilet would have been in the shower. Folks some things are not worth the fight so we have a concrete saw and sledge hammer and took on the job.
PLEASE MEASURE YOUR ROUGH INS AND MAKE SURE THE ARE CORRECT :)
My basement will now consist of:
8-9 foot BAR with TV and with sitting area. We will build the bar ourselves.
2 storage closets (Hubby hates them :( ) Hey I'm cutting into his BAR space.
Full 3 piece bath
Laundry area just for ME.
You want to talk about reconfigurating you basement. Gesh! Moving washer and dryer and gas line and vents and piping and laundry tub and running new duct work! But we did it all ourselves, my Hubby is Mr. Manskillz.
After this comes ELECTRICAL......oh boy, then the slow down begins!

IN OTHER 10 MONTH REVIEW NEWS.
So SOME floor creaks are addressed other is NOT. The one pop/creak in the foyer just won't go away, they have tackled it from the upstairs and pulled up subfloor only to make it worse and needed another day to fix the "fix".
This NEW fix comes next week where they tear into my living wall to see what going on in the ceiling that way. Oh boy :(
We still need a new transition piece for the front door, it has been many attempts to stop the air from blowing in through the door, now we are at ordering and new transition piece, the one that goes under the door when you close it.
|Above -Odd cracking in the ceilings, house is just settling :) No biggie, will get fixed.|
