Basement Remodeling

Today turned out to be a pretty nice day so I took my trusty drill out and took the wall down in the basement of the Redwood. I'm planning on moving the wall back about 8 inches and putting access doors in to get to the inverter and the "P" trap under the vanity(which I found was leaking). I will also move the water pump, vacuum, as well as move the water filter to an easier to get to place and install a water manifold.

Although I love my Redwood, I'm amazed at how little thought went into the routine maintenance and the mess of wires and water lines under the floor. I'll end up re-routing most of these along with a bunch of electrical and the furnace duct lines.

There sure is a bunch of wasted space under there.

I'm planning to do the same to our FL. I hope to be pleasantly surprised by any wasted space I might find since we all know basement storage in this model leaves a whole lot to be desired.

Dave,

What you are doing is something I would expect most of us who have spent more than a little time in these were also thinking of (I for one).
Anything you can update that would improve the space would be great!

Thank you!

Good luck Dave with your project. At 6'4" that area seems like a dungeon. The water filter it not only hard to get at but very flimsy. I guess I will have to buck up and get in there and do the fix. Please keep us posted on your progress.

My water filter was held up by a single screw. I spun the filter to line it up with the steel truss and added a second screw this really made a difference in changing the filter. Now once I relief the pressure I can break free with wrench using one hand instead of two, one holding the filter to keeping the filter from spinning.

Honestly, if I was a Redwood executive and saw the manner by which the water filter was "attached", I'd be embarrassed.
