Question on basement wall/foundation height
Is the 4 or 5 inch difference something that could vary by builder? My brother-in-law just built a few months ago and they paid for 9 ft and when you measure from the floor to the top of the concrete it is 9 ft.
In all, the plan for the basement was a playroom for the kids, a small bedroom for grandma when she visits twice a year and a full bath. I guess my biggest concern at this point is the bathroom. The builder approved us moving the bathroom to a different location in the basement, and it turns out it is directly under the furnace duct/vents. And like I said before, there is only a few inches clearance for a taller person as it is, before we even finish. So how on earth are we supposed to put in a vent fan on the ceiling, or a shower, or even the shower head, or to even put in a doorway to this bathroom without it looking terrible? The lower ceiling for a play/game room for the kids, I can deal with, but the bathroom is a big issue to me (which our builder said would be fine to put there)! Thanks for your comments!
