Thanks guys... Going to try and lay some tile tonight after work.

I have been accused by a poster... *G-Spot*... of having some day laborers work in the basement while I am at work... He may be removed from the guest list!!! LOL

Well, you did admit to hitting up the big box store every few days...they do have a ready source of day labor .

Seriously though, I believe you, projects can be funny, it has taken me 6 months to dry wall my garage but this summer I ripped off the siding on the front face of my house and then my neighbor and I resided it with Hardi...took two days to include a bunch of cedar shingle work. A little experience, the correct tools, and planning before you ever pick up a hammer can make things go pretty quick.

This is an awesome build! I am also in C-Bus and brewing in my garage in February es no bueno. I have been eyeing our basement laundry room for two years looking to do exactly what you have done.

What are you doing about return air for the exhaust hood? I'm a little nervous about CO in my basement since I'll be near the furnace and hot water heater.

Regardless, fantastic work. Truly top notch.

Badclown... no C02... all electric If you notice from the photos there is a basement window in the same space... it has a small 6"x12" window that opens.. voila makeup air.. could not have been in a better spot.. well maybe a little farther way. My hood will cover a little of the window.

Bensiff... I swear no illegal immigrant labor was used in this project. Only me
planning is key and the ability to adapt to your plan NOT going according to plan!!

I think that is the first plan of every project...Murphy is lurking and the only way to beat him is multiple unplanned trips to Lowes.
