Extra space for guests and an area for a home office/entertainment center were needed by the retired couple living in this Irvington Neighborhood home. Our project converted the full, unfinished basement of the 1923 bungalow into an entertainment space, guest bedroom, and second bathroom. With 985 square feet of existing living space, the 700 square foot basement addition resulted in nearly doubling the total living space in the home.
This 1910 Craftsman-style home is located in NE Portland’s Sabin Neighborhood. The full, unfinished basement previously housed a workshop and laundry area. Our clients decided to add valuable living space to their home by finishing the basement.
We created a 510 square-foot entertainment/playroom and the remainder became a utility/laundry room. Walls were framed and insulated, and drywall installed around the perimeter. The plumbing was updated; electrical outlets, switches, recessed lights, cable television, and telephone were installed throughout, and the basement was converted into a lavish carpeted living space with two closets, a built-in TV/Bookcase area, and new windows. The finish carpentry included wide baseboards, raised panel doors, wood windowsills, and a beautiful new banister leading into the basement.
This 1988 row house is located in SW Portland’s Johns Landing Neighborhood. The double-deep tandem garage was intended for future conversion to living space with rough plumbing already in place. With a baby on the way, our clients decided to expand their living area to create a home office and guest bedroom with bathroom and large closet. We converted the rear half of the garage into a beautiful hallway, bedroom, bathroom, and storage closet to accommodate their growing family. We were able to reuse good lumber from demolition, Zero-VOC paint, eco-friendly laminate hardwood flooring, and porcelain tile to create a clean and toxin free indoor environment. A little care and consideration went a long way to achieve a high quality result that was on time and within budget!
This 1925 Westmoreland bungalow needed additional space for family movie night, a kids’ play area, and a shower for Dad! Our basement conversion project created both an entertainment space and second bathroom in the home. With just 790 square feet of existing space, the 300 square foot basement conversion resulted in a 40% increase in total living space.
