That's a pretty cool hand truck. How do you go about bringing them down the basement? Do you have a helper?

The staircat has that option too and it also climbs stairs. The only time I need to lift one is for the drain pan thats 4" off the ground.

He is in california, they don't have a lot of basements and the water heaters/all of the mechanicals are often in the garage because it doesn't get cold. That hand truck is for lifting heaters onto and off of the stands they usually put them on. It's no better for stairs than a standard hand truck and may actually be worse for stairs because of the huge bulge.

We have some apartments out here that it would be perfect for!

Thankfully we don’t deal with them anymore.

Great idea!

Still it makes more sense to me to have a basement, all the pipes and electricity are accessible for repairs or to renovate, furnace downstairs with AC coil, washer and dryer, laundry tub etc. When I see the AC in the attic it baffles me big time.

It's much cheaper/faster to build an extra large single bay garage than to dig a basement instead of just pouring a slab.

In the city not so, developers cram in as man houses they can on the lot. A big garage wastes the lot for another profitable house. Then the other problem is to have the sewer and water lines 6-8 feet below ground.

In my area basements have become popular for those who can afford them for the following reasons:
1) Terra firma is very expensive
2) Restrictive zoning ordinances regarding lot coverage and set back
3) Light plane issues restricting tall structures

However, basements have unique issues.
1) If there are plumbing fixtures, they require a sewage ejector
2) Running MEP for the floors above the basement can be a pita, ie. expensive
3) Water proof concrete matt slabs and and exterior walls = $$$$$$$$$$$.
