Basement Floor Obstructions Ideas


Hi,

I just got new drain tile in the basement, and they installed "clean outs" about 1' from the block wall. They stick up about 1-2" from the floor. I also have a sewer clean out along the same wall that sticks up about an inch. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas to hide these when I put flooring in? Right now the only idea I have is to hide them under furniture.

Thanks!

Small bulkheads on the walls with some base molding trim going around them and a lift off top.

I cut the cast iron flush to the slab and put a expanding rubber washer plug in it. The metal plug sat on the pipe, although your case may be different. The top was recessed for bolt so I cut the protruding bolt as well. Cut with the bolt on and smooth out the bolt so that the nut comes off. I used 4" diamond cut blade on a grinder. The plug may have come with the wing nut but I'm sure it ended up with a regular hex nut.
