Queen Anne Basement Expansion

We helped this family add to their basement by adding a new concrete foundation and slab along with full height concrete walls. On the outside of the house new rock retaining walls created a lowered courtyard where the kids can play without worrying about them wandering into the street. The new indoor and outdoor spaces are separated by a pair of double doors and side lights the flood the new basement space with natural light. A pair of storage closets and a custom bench seat fill one end of the room while carpet tiles were chosen instead of standard carpet allowing a single square to be cheaply and easily replaced if one gets stained or dirty. An existing basement bedroom was retrofitted into a media room with concealed storage closets and the remainder of the basement was updated to give the entire basement a cohesive feel.
