Default The Next Big Push

We have decided that if some of the money in the bank can do no better than it does right now let's put it to work, thus the new project. The room in the attached pics will one day be the down stairs bathroom. Honey wants to start right away and I am all for that!! This will mean I don't have to run upstairs from time to time as I do now. It will also mean a utility sink in the shop area, I like that. It will also mean being spread a little thin at times but that is OK also.

The sequence of events will roughly be:
1. Clean out room where to put it all?? now that is a question!!
2. Frame in the linen closet, and 5' tub and shower.
3. Plumb in lift pump for sewer, I had the basement drains put in at the time of construction, this will involve running the vent to opposite end of house, setting the pump and plumbing in the sewage line with back flow preventer.
4. Set new panel, run circuits for pump, and 1-20 amp GFCI. Run a 20 amp for the pump (dedicated) also GFCI.
5. Run hot and cold water and drain lines where needed.
6. Run all electrical including an exhaust vent and electric heater .
7. Sheet rock as appropriate for give areas, tape top float.
8. Install tub, commode, and cabinets (I will make these, the tops, and splashes),
9. Install ceiling, paint, floors covering and appliances’.
10. Finish all missed items.

That sort of brings it all together.

Pic 1&2 Will be the sink and vanity wall, door leads to shop.
pic 3 Will be the commode and tub/shower.
pic 4 Commode riser.
pic 5 Sink riser
pic 6 Plumb in for stacked washer/dryer (future---like way future I get my band saw first future) to left of door leading to shop.
pic7 Utility sink location.

Well that is about all I have to offer at this time in the morning 4:05AM
I also spent a couple hours this morning working on the risers for Jason.

Jerry, when you say "big push", you mean "BIG PUSH". Good Luck, ambitious but the results should be worth it.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

We made the door a 3' 0" door so we could get things in there easily. We will be using a standard tub/shower or if there is room with the location of the commode. Code says minimum of 12" from the center of waste to anything on either side of it. Planning ahead, we had the basement lay out done before they poured concrete but then my shop was to be a kitchen and rec room. I shall like having the utility sink in the shop for use without messing up the bath sink. When we are done I will have to put a sweep on the door to keep dust and such out.

Jerry I think you have been drinking some of that "DAN JUICE"! That's quite the project but it will be well worth it for all the convenience and the added value to your home!

Don't look for a "Dan" type performance especially after 12" of rain in 24 hour and I don't think it is done yet.

We had 3 leaks in the basement that we never knew about before this rain there is a small leak in the area of the bathroom and a small and very large leak in the store room in the front of the house. In the bath area,it is along an old crack in the wall. In the front it is around where the sewage line and waterline penetrate the concrete wall.

Hopefully we shall not soon have a repeat performance of rain that we are having now but I will track down the leaks and get it fixed anyway. Outside of that, things are fine!!

As of last post we had had 12" of rain, well we matched that plus more. We had in the neighborhood of 25" before it was all over!! As a result the Big Push will get pushed out a few weeks while I plug a couple leaks in the basement so as not to have a repeat performance. Hopefully we will not have that much rain in that time span that will help with any leaks!! So for now clean up the small mess, get the speaker stand done and then the Big Push
