  • Posted in thread: Saving money (electricity) isn't working out... on 09-25-2009 at 09:50 AM
    Last year I "finished" my basement. (Well, put up insulation and actual walls with drywall, and
    new wiring throughout, etc.)This room is basically one big play room for the kids, with two
    smaller room...

    Ah. That makes sense. This means that I'll have to move the fresh-air vent then, rather than
    simply close it off. A bit of a bummer, but it is what it is. I appreciate the help on
    understanding all th...

    Ryan, how is your furnace vented? Is it through two PVC pipes to the outside or through a
    conventional chimney?Um. Neither? There is a single metal vent that goes out from the furnace
    to the outside o...

    But doesn't the cold air that comes in from the fresh-air intake that is attached to the
    cold-air return duct work lead directly to the furnace? It seems like it should suck in the
    cold air from there...

    Two years ago, we moved into a brand new house. In the basement, there is a fresh-air pipe. It
    simply dumps air from the outside into the basement. In the infinite wisdom of the builders,
    they placed ...

    Just a note. If you DO end up going to Lowe's or Home Depot, I suggest forgetting Lowe's. While
    framing my basement, I started out buying some lumber at Lowe's. Big mistake. Their lumber was
    terrible ...

    Thanks, all, for the input.

  • Posted in thread: Recessed lighting question on 11-07-2008 at 03:27 PM
    I'm debating between using recessed lighting in my basement versus the long fluorescent tubes.
    Recessed looks nicer, but provides less light. The primary use of my basement is a "kid
    hangout" and play...

    Anyone know what kind of door I can buy at Home Depot that I can cut down?My basement is only
    about 7'. After ceiling is put in, I have very little clearance, and an 80" door is too big.
    I'm thinking ...

    In your picture, you show your plumbing behind the ductwork. Box your ductwork level across,
    all the way to the wall. You will need a small header against the wall to rest your 2x's on.
    This is a grea...
