Project Overview

An all original basement from the 1950’s it shows the utilitarian nature of things back when. The original builder included uninsulated walls, heavily sloped floors for water / laundry drainage, the cold room under the exterior stairs for preserves and garden vegetables ( look familiar ).

This was an extensive basement renovation to bring it into the now and maximize the living space that your home has to offer. It started with a laundry area, then incorporated into a full size three piece washroom. Which involved break up of concrete for new plumbing and waste line tie – ins.

The end result is an inviting area, the  “ basement retreat “   a huge return on your investment.

We also did the laundry room / hallway with this project.
