We had a guy that worked with us that installed a second cleanout in the floor with the other end capped for storing valuables

If I could afford it, I've always wanted a full glass addition exterior and roof. 3' Skylight In the master with a sunken tub.

Shooting ranges are easy if you just want to bench rifles. 4' HDPE culvert works great

I don't know if you have a basement there. But I always like when my customers have a extra stairwell in the garage to go to the basement. For some reason it really seems handy.
