Hey tallpaul , I put the drains in myself and it does daylight at the small creek beside the cabin. I am thinking with the insulation on the basement wall , I should be able to keep my pipes from freezing with just a light bulb burning continuously when it is cold. I am planning on putting all my traps in the basements if code allows. I will still put a slant on my lines with a drain though just in case and all I will have to do is dump some antifreeze in my traps. Thanks for looking , Mike

if you keep the kitchen and bath back to back for the piping a small room below that can be heated can help with freezing pipes etc... any spigots or other longer runs you can add shut offs and drains back in the heated area too- then again I am guessin ya know that - ya seem experienced...

Yeah , that is the plan to keep everything water in that corner and my water tank and water heater will be right below in the basement.

mrhayes- I was reading through your latest posts and realized that you asked me a question that I didn't answer. Our building is up in the coal regions not too far from Frackville in Schuylkill county.
