I am a software programmer using C#, C+, and (less often) PHP. I frequently work with SQL, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and XML.

I own a business for technical consulting, programming, general IT work, and designing custom electronics (usually for costumes and theater/movie prop use).

I enjoy computers, music composition, photography, writing, sci-fi/fantasy, birding, and occasional cooking. (Many of which are topics of SE sites!)

A note on capitalization, spelling, and grammar: I care about the quality and readability of the questions and answers on StackExchange sites. I frequently edit for these reasons. I understand that not everyone knows English as their first language. If I leave a comment for you asking you to observe some language-usage convention, it's meant as a helpful hint, not as an attack.

comment What is the typical water pressure for a sprinkler system in a home?
Residential sprinkler systems are on-topic for DIY; wanting to know "typical" pressure might be too ambiguous, but rephrased slightly, this question is on-topic in my opinion.

comment How do you plan capacity for electrical circuits?
The lighting calculations of VA/ft² is very interesting, it could be in its own Q&A thread...

comment How to finish room with protruding concrete ledge/foundation?
A good suggestion, a lot of other sites show building a shelf or bench of some kind. However I wanted to maximize space. This room is intended to be a workshop/office, but it may regarded as a bedroom if I were to sell the home.

comment How do you plan capacity for electrical circuits?
My curiosity is whether you count, for example, a standard "Edison" light bulb socket as using the wattage you intend to use (25 watt compact fluorescent bulb) or the maximum wattage that could be installed, i.e. 120W incandescent bulb?

@DA01 Yes, it's not technically a basement. It's the ground floor, with another above it. Sorry for the ambiguity.
