Cleveland area general contractors recently helped one Broadview Heights family turn their cluttered basement into fully functional living area.
Like many homeowners in Brecksville – Broadview Heights, this family needed more living space, and decided the basement would be a great place to find it. After talking with a few home remodeling firms, they were still having trouble envisioning the ideas that the contractors were suggesting, so they called us here at JM Design Build a free design consultation. With the help of our design team, we were not only able to explain to them how to maximize the usable space of the basement but actually provided professional drawings to show exactly how we could transform the entire floor into a fully functional household area.
As it turned out, the homeowners had a lot more room than they had realized. For instance, in addition to freeing up more than 120 square feet of storage space, this Broadview Heights basement remodel includes a home theater room (pre-wired for a projector and surround sound), a downstairs office with a feature glass door, an exercise room, and a full basement bathroom which is complete with tile floor and a glass shower. What’s more, our professional craftsmen cut back one side of the wall coming down the stairs in order to open up the layout and eliminate the “tunnel” feeling of the steps.
Here is what the homeowner told Service Magic about his newly finished basement:
The people at JM are very easy to work with and are great with communication. I would highly recommend them to work on your home!! – David G, Broadview Heights Homeowner
