I used HomeyD's for a lot of things...mostly the bulk items like wood, insulation, drywall, plumbing stuff...

But with the finer things like carpet, paint and cabinetry, I couldn't beat Lowes customer service. I mean an example, when they put the carpet in, they called 45 minutes later to ask how satisfied we were...just small touches like that.

Yuengling?? That basement is in Downingtown, PA, the home of "Victory".

Victory is 2 blocks from my house actually.
I have 12 Storm Kings and 12 Golden Monkeys in the wine chiller :-)

Looks great, you should be proud. You added at least 10% to your houses value. Don't tell the tax man.

Unfortunately the permit triggers the taxman to come out and we got a little tacked on. They never saw it, just went by our permit application.

But oh well....

Nice job! It looks great. How do you like the saniflow toilet? If we ever add a bathroom in the basement, we will probably have to go with something like that.

It's been perfect actually. No leaks, no issues. It's withstood some rather large parties and relatively high usage this past year. It wasn't hard to install either. You only have two choices for below grade waste removal. The Saniflo vs raising a regular toilet 6" on a pedestal and flushing down into a sump dug into the basement floor.

You still have to use a pump in either situation. The Saniflo seemed less intimidating to me.

beautiful! Were your stairs already set up like that? My husband and I would like to finish our basement, but in our 1920's house, the basement stairs are rather steep and don't think we have an option to make them better without having people bump their heads!

Yes, my steps were already in place and at that angle.
My home was relatively new construction when I bought it.
