When I poured a nice new pex-piped concrete slab in the old basement, I didn't think about the loss of headroom from the 4" concrete slab..
So, the first step onto the new floor was uneventfull,, the second step.... WHANG !!! run my head into a pipe that I've missed for the last 11 years when in the old cellar. So now I have another scar on my head. And I'm retraining myself to stoop lower while in the old cellar. It's now the 'utility room'.
I'd like to go with the shaved head look,, but I fear that the scars on my scalp would look like a fireworks display or a demented roadmap.
