As we move forward with the basement project there have been no hiccups or surprises (knock-on-wood).
The first accomplishment: Lights. Q has successfully run the electric and installed seven recessed lights, and run the electric for most the the new floor plan. He even managed to put up a few of the internal walls (at least the walls with light switches). Next step, finish the switches and move to the wall outlets.
The second accomplishment: Heat! This morning it was 1F. Ouch! Luckily Q ran new gas line and installed a temporary 40,000 BTU gas wall heater. This should be powerful enough to heat the whole basement if we needed it. YEAH!!!
As the floor plan starts to become more evident and functional, I can’t tell you how exciting it is!

Water proof basement Insulate exterior walls Run electric/install lights Frame infloor plan (remove the last bit of junk from the basement)
