This may be a way off base suggestion, but maybe not. I suggested it to
my niece who was trying to get her pool table down into the basement in
her new house. She thinks I'm crazy.
Anyhow, if you have carpeting anywhere above the basement, pull back the
carpeting, pull out the underlayment (hoping it's not glued down), saw a
floor joist and pull it up. Sister in a new joist when replacing.
It may seem radical, but I think its easier than taking out the
staircase or foundation.
Nah. Put in a trapdoor, for next screwup. No prob.
Flush the Johns.
