The Ultimate Basement Build Before and After

So, If you follow me at all on social media you may have seen sneak peek post from a basement installation we have been working over a year on. Before it is officially on my site or in any press, I am sharing it with you here now.

Are you ready?

I am so excited I cannot even stand it!

Okay – So here are the befores taken about 15 months ago…

All in all, we have our typical 1700 square foot, unfinished basement. Yes – I said 1700 square feet.

The plan was to install a movie theatre, a small work space pass through, general area, huge bar and a new play room.

Not many know this but, I am a full service design firm. I have the staff to handle your remodeling projects of kitchens, basements  and baths. My posse can dream it up, design it, draft it, build it, and furnish it. This is the type of project that is handled from the “rubba to the tudda”

This technical stuff is not for the faint of heart.

But the vanity floor plan I came up with is…

The fun part for me was designing a custom light fixture for the bar. We originally wanted pendants, but due to the after built ceiling height there was no way to pull this off. So I came up with this light fixture right above the bar…

And a custom entertainment center…

Then I kept drawing until I had the entire space done.

I went waaaay overboard, this statement was said by everyone I showed this to. I have been accused of being a bit…”much” at times.

So we deleted some furniture, the custom media center, accessories, and made the rooms feel less serious, and more open. We decided to take the library room WAAAY down, and use a simple desk and a playful rug with art. In the theatre room we took out the orange chairs and made the theatre room feel more traditional.

So are you ready to see the real life afters???

Wait – Let’s do a reminder of the before first…
