Re: Move low-hanging pipes in a low-ceiling basement?
Is it feasible, probably. Is it practical, in my opinion no. With the pipes right up against the joists you still only have less than 6½ feet. By the time you raise the pipes, dig out the floor, make necessary changes to the wall footings, add egress if you are finishing the basement it would be cheaper and more practical to build on above ground. Just my opinion.
