Save now on basement and garage construction projects
Many people use their unfinished basements for storage and often it can become one big junk pile. Did you know that by renovating your basement you could gain up to 30% living space if you have a two-storey home?
Here are some signs that it is time to refinish your basement:
Is your home bursting at the seams? Are your kids fighting over a shared bathroom or bedroom? Do your teenagers need a place to entertain friends? Consider finishing your basement! Depending on the size of your basement, you could add an extra bedroom or two, bathroom or games room. If your family enjoys watching movies or playing video games, perhaps creating a media room with pot lights and a wet bar would help.
Would you like to earn a little extra income every month with very little effort? Consider building a basement legal suite or apartment. With a separate entrance and sound proofing, it will almost be like your renters are not even there. There are many legal requirements when it comes to constructing a legal basement apartment but with an experienced basement builder, you can have the peace of mind knowing that nothing will be missed.
Perhaps you are a crafter and would like to have a place where you can leave your work lying out when you are done instead of having to put everything away because you are using your kitchen table. Maybe you like to watch the Oilers games with chilled beverages and your favourite snacks. Your basement could be designed to incorporate whatever you are passionate about. From a hobby room to a man cave, your basement can be much more than a dark and cold empty space.
Do you have family or friends who come from out of town to visit? Your basement could be refinished to make your guests feel as comfortable as possible away from home while still maintaining your own privacy. Hotels are costly but sleeping on the floor or couch or having to give up your own bed could be inconvenient. Creating a simple guest room and bathroom in the basement lets your loved ones stay close yet still gives everyone a bit of space after a long day of visiting and sight seeing.
