Basement Finishing

Basements are often the most underutilized spaces in a home. Out of sight, out of mind - your basement can become an area where a bunch of junk is stored. Whether your basement is unfinished, or it's been finished but no longer meets your family's needs, think about transforming that space into a home office, a home theater, a game room, a wine cellar, or even additional living space. The possibilities are endless!

This is an area that can easily change during the different stages that your family goes through. Maybe when the kids are younger it can be a game room where they can gather with their friends around a pool table and a video gaming console. As they leave the nest, a bar area and wine tasting room for adult socials become more attractive options. This is an ideal space for such activities because it is slightly separated from the rest of the household activity.

The processes within our HOMEStyle system empower our creative team to transform it into a space that enhances your lifestyle.


During the DEEPDiscovery phase we’ll learn about your family and what you want for it. Will the transformation of your basement space allow your family members to have the relationships you desire for them?

What kind of basement space do you already have? What is it being used for now? Do you have children living at home? How many? Do they always go to their friends' homes, or do they congregate here? Do you have out-of-town family and need extra guest rooms? Are you movie buffs? These are just a few of the questions we'll ask. When we have a good understanding of your dreams, goals, and financial parameters, we'll move on to the next stage.


Drawing from what we learn in the discovery phase, we prepare an INSPIREDDesign, a design that, taking into account your budget, creates an environment that can facilitate the development of relationships that you would like your family to enjoy.

The basement area often starts out as a big "box" with existing walls from a design standpoint, allowing our design team to use its creativity to capture your goals and develop fun and truly inspiring rooms. Because we are a design/build remodeling firm, we consider the designs and the structural realities of the building and its envelope. We ensure that all these needs are addressed.


The MASTERPlan uses your goals and family needs to develop a plan for moving forward both now and in the future.

At this point your family is small and you only want to build out a part of your basement. In a few years you may be blessed with more children, or with adult children (or a parent) coming back to live with you. At that time you may convert the recreation area into living space. Planning now for those eventualities can save you a lot of time and money. You may find it most efficient to install the basic plumbing for a bathroom now that you don’t expect to build out until later. Once all these plans are all worked out, we’re ready to move on to the next stage.


When construction begins, our BUILDINGPrinciples come into play.

Our system features a Project Manager with authority to make necessary decisions on the spot. Your Project Manager supervises all the work done throughout the project, making sure the best construction standards are maintained. We offer a two-year warranty on our work, which is double the industry standard.
