comment Do I need more than just Drylok to insulate concrete basement walls before framing out some walls?
I'm not saying it won't work. I'm just saying it's sub-optimal. I'd be worried about what's going on behind the walls.

How big is the basement? Would building an insulated box well away from the walls provide enough space?

Yeah, my solution is expensive, and other options for the space should be explored.

comment What are framing dimensions like in the metric world?
The main reason why Canadian dimensions are still imperial is that something like 75% of the lumber manufactured here goes to the US.

The diverter is that little stick on the faucet. Give it a tug and see if it drains faster.

comment How do I seal/paint pine casing for maximum lifetime?
Also, where the casing comes in contact with the ground/concrete/deck, cut it about a 1/4 inch short, and fill the gap with caulk. This will stop moisture from wicking up from the bottom.

After you shut it off, Turn the diverter to shower and back. Does the water flow out all at once and stop?

comment Can I use latex exterior paint over oil based primer?
You might be able to. But you'd need to do a test first, and that will take more time than running to the store and getting an oil paint.
