Remodeling the basement.....need ideas.

Recommended Posts

We figured that we didn't need a monster laundry room so we moved some walls.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Here are some pics of the progress so far.

We had to kick the wall out around the sump pump so we could build an access door if we need to get at it. Above the box we're going to have shelving, etc.

The last picture shows that you have the right tools for the job wink

I'd put 1" TuffR next to the block.

Hiding the duct is going to be tough, maybe just paiting it white to match ceiling is worth a try. Cheap and easy...

Dont forget to heat the basement,vents out the side work best to distribute the heat in far away corners,rather than straight down to the floor

There appears to be a lot of black bloches in your insulation? If you put your hand in the insulation, and the black stuff feels crusty that is maybe not so good. Also I would take fiberglass insulation out of joists, and put foam in the spaces.

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger.
