Beside insulating pipes from cold weather, or trying to use heat tape, a very effective way of protecting pipes from freezing is to introduce a circulating pump into the water system. By installing a circulation system, the water from the ‘hot’ side of the system gets sent to the ‘cold’ water line. This greatly reduces the possibility of water pipes freezing because the water temperature never reaches the critical freezing point.
The book also talks about water-proofing on page 46-47. I haven’t seen this approach elsewhere, and I’m disappointed not to see discussion of external drain mats and so on. Every book says you have to keep plants away from the house. Well I and I suspect others can’t do that and stay married, so I’ll probably end up building a watertight flower box above a drain mat. This might be a good project to add to a second edition of the book.
Ending with my favorite overall design. From the front arched entrance with white classical columns to the room addition that houses a dining room addition with more the flair of a sun room with the large eyebrow window for added sunlight. Imagine the interior dining room with cathedral ceilings, crystal chandelier and the natural light from the eyebrow window. An amazing design idea that readily allows for the formal chandelier that is fitting for this classical colonial home.
The first thing a person should do in the basement remodeling is to add more lighting to the basement. The purpose of this move is to add more lighting to the room in a basement as a lighted room is more favored in comparison to a dark room. One thing a person should do is to consider the option of adding windows to the basement if possible as natural light is the best light in the world. If natural light is not possible, artificial light fixtures should be added. The best option in this matter would be to use lamps and other such things.
