    Any idea what this is?
    It’s wall mounted and wired into 110, located in the AC closet, I’m unsure of where the outgoing wires go.

    Thanks, I had just started looking into the doorbell parts because the 5V made me think it was related to the doorbell even though the speaker is across the hall and switch itself past that.

    Yep, 120 in and 5V out, it was connected to the wiring of the dishwasher.

    Obviously Oz is correct, and the go to for this sort of thing. To elaborate, remember that the ceiling you chose and the insulation, is also going to weigh down on the trusses. When I built my barn, I had trusses spec-ed for a ceiling. Although you may never see a problem, the trusses may not have been designed for the extra weight of just insulation and ceiling material, much less storage.

    This. Then you would also get the fore rating as well. Was thinking about doing fire resistant paint as well.

    You have a clean slate to start with and if you are adding electric outlets mount them 50" above floor. Then a sheet of plywood or other stuff won't bury it.

    To add to this some AHJ requires 2x plaster board if a garage wall is connected to a living space. I'd check with your code people and make sure you only have to do it once.

    Plaster redeemed the is for fire protection aka prolonged burn protection.

    Having water issues in my basement. We've got melting snow outside and I've got some water seeping in between the slab and the block foundation. Looks like the previous owner applied drylok to the walls, or it could just be white paint. Any one have any recommendations for a interior sealer/waterproofer to use? Last resort would be a French drain.

    Sadly, any interior applied paints will only bandaid the issue. Blocks are designed to fill up and no basement is ever truly water proof. While its costly, a sump pump drainage system is your best bet.

    Best course of action is digging up the exterior and applying a drainage board

    You can do an interior french drain but that isn't fixing the issue just moving the water away after it gets through the wall

    This is why block sucks

    We have a sump pump in case the basement floods but this is just some pooling along the slab and block. I think I might try Ames trowel grade blue sealant along the corners and see if that helps any.

    How high is the wall backfilled outside above slab height ?
