Your graphics and design suggestions were very nice. The images were quite impressive. We were able to get a lot of ideas from your proposed layout. Plumbing was mostly centrally located and the overall design seemed like it would be open if implemented. The windows drawn in the designs were very nice and practical for a basement (security).
1. We did not want to add an additional door. This is a brick masonry building and adding another door will be quite expensive. This was stated specifically on the wall.
2. With this design, effectively, anyone would have to go outside to do the laundry which could be an inconvenience.
3. More windows were added than necessary thus increasing cost (see above drawback).
