2012 - Basement demo


Yea, it was great. Mix 6.5 quarts of water per bag. It's supposed to be runny so the liquid can level out. I cleaned and vacuumed the area before I put down the primer. Let the primer dry and then poured the compound. Looks great!

More pics from today. After applying the PL300, we had 2x4's holding the foam tight to the wall.

Looks like there's a jack hammer in the pic behind the pile of concrete chunks.

Pictures of the tools I am using for framing. Different angles of the framing we've done so far. And a picture of the double bottom plate layers (Foam Seal, PT 2x4, 2x4).

I stopped because I would like to replace the windows before I frame close to them. Could I frame against them or am I doing the right thing by waiting?

Replacing and framing the windows. Looks like I'll need custom windows WxH (33 7/8 x 22 1/4). This gives me a little play room inside the frame. Waiting to frame out the other back window so I can order both at the same time...

Now I'm scratching my head... I was assuming the cast iron pipe continued straight for another 6 feet or so and met up with the main. Unfortunately, it only took a few feet of digging to see that it 90s straight down?

Hope you can see by the pictures.

This house was built in 1974. Where would this pipe go??

I wanted to make this opening bigger, so I put the studs closer to the metal support post. The issue is now the right side. Since there will be a wall coming right off that corner, will it look bad to leave it how I have it?

Or should I throw in another stud on the right, maybe 3-4 inches in? That way there will be a patch of drywall going up the right side of the wall.

Or can I move the 2x4 on the right flush with that bottom plate. This way the wall can continue to go back?
