Once again, progress on the house drew to a crawl as we waited for our plumber to show up to rough-in the basement. This morning he was finally free and able to meet me up at the house site to go over the plans and figure out where all of the water-related amenities would be placed.
The bathroom in the basement probably won’t be finished for a few years, but it was easier to get it roughed in now than to wait until after the concrete floor was poured. Note the ejection pit and sump directly behind where the sink will go. We will have the water heater back there with all that in a closet.
The builder came last night and put his sealer and foam on the exterior of the basement walls, then backfilled over the exterior drain tile.
Tomorrow our builder will pour the basement floor. Next week we will start seeing floor joists and walls go up. Yahoo!
