Really like the pine doors you chose and the ceiling finish.

About that pump. The company I worked for was moving into a new commercial space and while I was getting familiar with the generator controls and automatic transfer switch, I noticed a pump panel so I called he landlord. He said it was for something the previous tenant had done and not to worry-being wary, I asked him if he was sure. He said yes and not to worry about it. A couple of days later, the stench was unmistakable. Turns out, the building is below grade and used a lift pump to get effluent to the sewer mains. Worse, the pump had failed and the vault was within 6" of the top-which was just outside one of the side entrances to the building....so yeah, the pump should be a priority
