- Finished basement with egress window
The homeowner had just started a home-based technical documentation business after years of working in a professional office environment. She wanted to maintain the same level of professionalism in her home office and needed to transform her basement into a place where she could stay in a business mindset by day and relax by evening. She and her husband demoed to bare walls. Then we installed a perimeter drain to guarantee the basement would stay dry. Then we dug a well and cut through the concrete wall to add an egress window according to municipal code. We framed out the walls with metal studs and installed three circuits and plentiful outlets. We finished the walls with drywall and the ceiling with a suspended grid and tiles. The customer chose energy efficient LED-compatible cans to light up the space. Finally we carpeted and painted to her specs.
