Basement Plan

As we mentioned in our previous post, the basement is our #1 priority as we try to wrap up the "greening" of our home so we can get the type of green we really care about... rebates.
This is our plan for the coming weeks.

  • run new 3/4 water line from the supply to where we branch off for hot water
  • run new drains: 1 to the back door for later restructuring, 1 for the furnace, 1 for the washer in it's new location.
  • do required concrete repairs to patch the drain holes and level the floor for a subfloor at some point in the future.
  • run new pex water lines for the washer and a sink rough in
  • wire the basement for future finishing
  • frame the basement
  • insulate the basement to >R23 for a massive rebate

This is pretty much the plan for now. We're taking the basement to the point where we can get our next energy audit. We can't totally finish it until we restructure the back stairs which will probably happen in spring.
