Nice video ... So the simple, temporary solution might be an exterior ground (insulated, not bare) that goes back into the basement to the main panel.

Can you do that?

PS The insulation protects dogs from doing something stupid.

My last post on this ... I would suggest running an insulated ground wire inside water tight conduit from the upstairs room ... run it outside then kick it inside to the basement ... connect to the NEW box. This ground would give you a temporary ground until you can rewire the house

Relatively inexpensive, efficient, and properly done.

Gotta get back to work ...
