    Tanking basement wall with electric meter

    I'm planning on applying tanking slurry to this wall. Do I have to figure out a way to apply the slurry behind the electric meter and fusebox? I'm hoping there's an alternative like something I can inject behind the chipboard they're attached to. The chipboard is attached to some wood batons...

    wall to wall bench supported by a joist?

    I want to put a 3' deep bench along a 10'6" wall. The problem is that it can't be supported by legs, so I want to run a joist between the end walls. My plan is to take two small pieces of the the joist timber and screw them to each end wall so that I can use a couple of easy joist hangers to...
