RECYCLED BASEMENT - BEFORE


We started discussion with the homeowners in 2000 regarding the need for more closet space.  At that time we suggested they consider a finished basement.  But, Mrs. Homeowner would have no part of it.  So, we designed and built an award-winning finished attic over their 3-car garage (Attic).  10 years and many smaller projects later it was time to gut and redo the kitchen.  But, just as we were about to start the design phase the first-floor laundry sprang a leak.  The kitchen was delayed in favor of a new laundry room.

But, before we could begin the laundry room we needed to temporarily relocate all of the stored items in the room.  They had to go to the basement.  As you can see from the photos below we had to add another step: oganization.

It was decided that racks had to be built before anything could be brought to the basement.  So, the design phase of storage space for the basement was the first priority.

The process halted until after the laundry room and then the kitchen were completed.  We restarted again in 2012.  The complete design/build process follows in "The Rest Of The Story".
