I designed and built framing for the basement hallway today. When I bought the house, the hallway was an open passage directly in the laundry room. As part of the new design, I’ve added a door into the laundry room, and a linen closet at the end of the hallway.
Heavy rains are hitting the Twin Cities again today. Glad we had drain tile installed. At first I was nervous that the sump pump wasn’t working. But it’s actually just very quiet! I only heard it turn on when I was standing right next to it. We’ve worked so hard to repair our home, and this system is protecting our investment.
Our new basement window is just below the grade, so I customize and install a window well and fill it with gravel. I also paint the cedar trim around the window.
