Looks like you used some type of adhesive with the XPS foam? Any reason you didn't go with screws and plates? (I'm slowly adding foam board to my basement, but I've been using screws and plates..)
Keep up the good work!

Yea, I used PL-300 Foamboard adhesive. I didn't want to put any screws through the concrete block walls, I was more comfortable with the dabs of PL-300. It worked really well for the back wall.

I love the outside of your house with the arched windows. It looks like a little Brooklyn Brownstone!

Now for the full basement plumbing...

Most supplies are from PexSupply (AquaPex with expansion fittings / tool)

Water pressure = 92PSI!!! So I picked up a PRV.

Ran all new 10-3 wire for the water heater and dryer and 12-2 for the washer. Also put up the washing machine box.

Washer and Dryer outlets are stacked because I will be getting a new washer and dry and stacking them to make more room in the laundry.

Plywood will be where I mount the 5g expansion tank as well as my hot / cold manifolds.

What a day... We successfully installed the water heater and all new AquaPex in the basement to the entire house. Pressure valve and Expansion tank also installed. Water pressure is now down from 92 to 70.

Using the expansion tool was extremely easy. The tool is expensive but well worth a buy, use and sell on ebay.

The first 2 pictures are of a duct box I had to re-build to get ac/heat to an upstairs half bath.

The rest of the pictures are more framing. Pic 3-4 are of a closet. One side for the general basement the other side will be for the laundry room.

Pic 5 will be of a small build in nook. Around 20x48.

Lastly, we took all the copper pipes, 50g hot water tank and a old laly column to the scrap yard. Got $205 for everything...
