2012 - Basement demo


I'd get a permit to finish it, just for the paper trail for your H.O.Insurance carrier, in case of a future claim and at resale.
I wouldn't use bleach, rather the other mold product you said already (or laundry detergent and water). No dryloc on the walls, they should allow moisture to pass through; http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...lation-systems
Air seal the rim joists with foamboard: http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...l_seal_rev.pdf

Use foam-compatible adhesive in a small grid pattern: http://joneakes.com/jons-fixit-database/743
Where are you located?

Gary

You probably wouldn't be issued a permit without basement egress; door or an egress sized window......need that for your H.O. Insurance carrier and when you resell it.

Looks like there is quite a lot of work to be done there. I'll be very interested in viewing the progress. My wife and I just moved into our first home in April 2011. The basement is finished, but I think there are certainly some changes we'd think about with the floor and possibly adding drywall. Can't wait to see updated pictures.
How large is the space?

The paper facing on the batts should be toward the warmed side- facing up. You should have rigid board at the joists: http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...l_seal_rev.pdf as the rim joist expands/contracts with the seasons letting in/out air.

Another group of pictures. I am now moving out to the front side of the basement where the laundry room and full bath are... As always, let me know if you have any questions or want to see anything particular.

cool stuff. we did a basement demo as well. so your reason was to install new insulation and look at the damage behind the window leak?

Well, mainly because it was so closed off with rooms framed in everywhere, plus there was this awful painted paneling on each wall that made me sick to look at. I'm glad I'm doing it though because there were 3 uncovered junction boxes that were all live just laying on the insulation on the drywall.
