Recessed Light Holdings, Ready To Be Wired Up - Earlier than we went out-of-city for thanksgiving, jim had someone from the fairfax county permit office come by to approve the wall frames. This is generally executed simplest after the electrical is completed, however the man or woman jim spoke to on the phone insisted that for a basement remodel, you had to have a person out before you began electrical. ?the person who got here out to observe the walls disagreed with that notion process, however there has been nothing we may want to do approximately it at that factor. ?whilst there, he knowledgeable jim of some thing called “fireblocking.?? this needs to be down in basements due to the fact the wall frames are set up a few inches away from the cement blocks. ?with the space created between the wall and the cement blocks, there is lots of air that would feed a hearth should one ever escape. ?by means of installing more portions of wood that at once touch the concrete in conjunction with a sealant (referred to as fireblock), it blocks the airflow and therefore slows down a fire from spreading. ?we had to block each ten ft along the wall plus block among the wall and the ceiling. ?this meant measuring and reducing out portions of wooden to head in among every wall stud. Jim additionally needed to nail every piece in. ?he became hammering up which takes lots greater effort and lots longer. Then we needed to placed the fireblock sealant in all of the cracks and connection factors. We simplest got approximately halfway finished on saturday however we luckily completed the fireblocking for the primary room (now not the laundry room) by sunday past due within the afternoon.
We additionally needed to build and installation the header of the new basement closet. ?this closet will be accessed thru the laundry room and we especially deep. ?the simplest hardship on this header became a water pipe that runs via that place within the ceiling. ?jim just created a little divot in the header so the pipe wouldn’t be disturbed.
Similarly to electrical work, we've also finished framing maximum of the areas of the basement. This protected framing the support beam, post, and vent. The wooden frame needs to be there so we're able to screw the drywall into something. ?jim planned out how it'd all come collectively and his plan worked great. It become a bit hard to screw the frames in region and level but after a few attempts, we got it. We also added 2 by means of four’s in among the two frames to comfortable it and also so we will upload drywall to it. ?the most traumatic element changed into that concrete across the base of the submit become uneven and no longer in super form. Therefore, when jim tried to hammer a base piece of timber into the concrete with masonry nails, one aspect could move in and the alternative side could pop up. ?we needed to get creative. ?we basically determined to make the vertical portions a little longer than the needed to be so we should wedge the lowest piece into place. ?i was a bit uneasy approximately it being relaxed, but it ended up being so comfortable that jim used it to boost himself up from the floor. ?that timber isn’t going anywhere.
