Basements are perfect for casual social activities for the kids or the whole family. It is the ideal spot to install exercise equipment or a large screen TV, to read by a fireplace or to stash craft supplies and board games. Tour examples of how we converted these underused spaces into inviting and functional rooms, complete with sound systems, internet connections, dimmable lighting, bathrooms and mini-kitchens.
Tuned to Perfection Two Tree Island 1999
An elaborate home theater featuring an Owens Corning Acoustimac home theater surround installation provides perfectly balanced sound throughout this basement space conversion. Acoustically transparent fabric covers a series of reflective and absorbing sound panels that were computer designed by Owens Corning. A Lutron home entertainment system controls lighting and the complete audio/video installation.
Waiting to Play Two Tree Island 1999
A ¾-inch cantilevered glass shelf projects from the wall to provide support for several components of the audio/video system in this entertainment center. Custom cabinets with a DuPont automotive lacquer finish provide storage for both additional audio/video equipment and the owners collection of CDs and classic vinyl records.
Bring in the Light Sunset Terrace 2009
A cast-stone fireplace by Tulsa Castings replaced the original red brick fireplace surround. Moldings were milled to meet the specifications of the original drawings for this 1928 Maple Ridge home. Pella casement windows bring light into the basement through the reconstructed window wells. A Travertine tile floor completed the restoration of this 1500-sf basement remodel.
Habitually Historic Sunset Terrace 2009
As an integral part of the restoration of a 1500-sf basement in a 1928 Maple Ridge historic home we completely rebuilt the stairway. The entire railing system along with stairway risers and treads were removed. Damaged balusters were accurately reproduced using original drawings for the home. New oak treads and pine risers were added to complete the restoration.
Storage Solutions Sunset Terrace 2009
To accommodate an extensive collection of books a custom bookcase complete with led strip lighting was installed in the remodeled basement. A home entertainment center was added to the center of the bookcase assembly. The soffit above the bookcase cleverly conceals the revamped heating and air conditioning ducts that service this room. New Pella Architectural Series casement windows filter natural light into the basement through the restored window wells.
