I’m planning to finish my basement, but having difficulty figuring out
what to do with the one wall against which the house drain, vent, and
trap are mounted on. (http://www.flickr.com/photos /
I have full basement. House drain is about 6ft above basement floor
level, along basement wall, and drains outside to the septic tank.
Ideally, I would like to finish this wall with insulation, furring
strips and plasterboard. But I know I *must*
have access to the house
trap, cleanouts etc. in case there’s a clog.
I do not want to reduce proposed living space to make this part of the
wall into a “utility room.”
I was thinking to make two 4x8 panels and mount them with anchor bolts
at top and bottom in front of these pipes, so that I can remove and
access if needed, and won’t be starring at ugly pipes all the time.
Can anyone advise on similar experiences? All opinions appreciated.
