Upcoming basement project
I built a family room a couple of years ago on one half of my basement. This month I'll be starting on building another bedroom and bath to finish it out. Last spring we found that even though we have a walkout basement, we had a water problem. During some heavy weeks of raining the ground got saturated and came up through the rough opening for the (future) bath tub in the basement floor. To prevent the problem again we installed a sump pump. Unfortunately the only place I could install it out of the way is where this bedroom is going. The small closet in the corner will house the sump pump. The double doors next to it will be the closet for the room, which also has the electrical panel and cabling (tv/phone) patch panels. The french doors go out to the family room, which I'm considering adding a kitchenette in. The single door on the side with the french doors will go out to a hall and bath. There will be a drop ceiling above the bed for the ducts and wiring runs as well as above the closets to have a full run back to the panels.
Anyway, will try to get some pics in as I progress since I wont have time for any woodworking projects for a while.
