While waiting on my new wheels to arrive, I decided to work on my basement some....

While waiting on my new JB MagTan wheels to arrive, I decided to work on my basement shop some.

My main goal was to "boot" my washer and dryer out of the back section of my basement shop. Besides being annoying to listen to while watching TV, the dryer generates a lot of dust and lint. I also have faulty polybutelene plumbing in my home that will need replacing with copper. So I figured it would be a good time to accomplish 3 goals.

1. Boot the washer and dryer to a front section of my garage I don't care about.

2. Replace Polybutelene plumbing with copper pipe.

3. Install an "outside" hot water faucet next to the cold faucet while re-doing plumbing so I can have hot water outside. Especially useful for washing outside when the winter weather sets in.

First set of pics is how it "use" to look BEFORE booting the washer and dryer

How do you get your bike in the basement?

Ran new a new 240V 10/2wg outlet for my dryer and temporarily hooked up to just cold water, but it works.

I wanted to keep my stock exhaust, for now, so I hung it from my 14 foot high basment ceiling. Now its out of the way.

Faulty Polybutelne plumbing. It "rots" from the inside then eventually bursts. A class action lawsuit has been available for years but mine is not covered due to the amount of use I have gotten from it. The pipe outside the house always burts first because it is under more pressure. My outside poly line burst 6 years ago and was replaced FREE. Inside I have built a copper "grid" next to the poly, I just now need to cut it over. Almost all my water plumbing is exposed, making it easier to cut over.

Thats a real nice space, wish I had a little extra room to spare. Now you got the gears turning..I feel like I need a lift like that even though I would probably never use it.

I roll it straight in. This pic should clairfy that and also shows where I plan to put my "outdoor" hot water faucet.

Still need to re-hang my heavy bag, but after booting the washer and dryer I have a whole lot more room. I also lowered and centered one of my 8 foot flourescent lights directly over the bike while on the lift.
