In the midst of building a house in the NE and we are at the point where the
2nd floor is being built. We've got about 4 inches of water and ice in the
basement that has accumulated during the last month of snow, rain, thaw. My
architect/builder isn't that concerned about it, and I am going to quiz him
next week as to when they are going to try and clear it out, since I can't
see how they are going to get this stuff out easily once it's completely
frozen and the rough-in and mechanicals are going in at some point.
Is this something I should be pushing him to remove.? I just don't think
it's good to have that amount of water and ice down there, and I don't want
it holding up the project. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
