This is the end product.  An actual unstaged, ready to use client basement. We began with an in-person customer consultation where we helped our clients visualize their dreams.  Then we employed the very best project managed approach to completing the basement project on time and — importantly — on budget.  Along the way, our clients met with our designer and selected the fit and finishes that suited them.  Then they worked closely with their Project Manager, and enjoyed ongoing insights into the project thanks to our client web portal.  But in the end, none of that mattered.  Because what matters to our clients, is the finished product and the way it fits into their lives.  Enjoy these pictures of finished basements as much as we have enjoyed building them, and our clients’ have enjoyed using them.  Perhaps we can add your basement to this gallery in the near future.

Finished Basement

Finished Basements


We help our clients visualize the needs in a finished basement from both a planning and budgetary perspective.  Then we work together to build out the dream basement via our project managed approach and our unique client portal.  We invite our clients to our offices to work closely with our designer to finalize the important details, and then we’ll build a basement protected for life against the mold and mildew that are constant threats in a basement build by using high-quality and environmentally appropriate non-organic materials rather than the usual gypsum and wood employed by less educated contractors.

Second Suites


In a market where home prices continue to rise at increasingly alarming rates, the only way to get ahead with a single home is to consider it’s use as a second suite or basement rental property.  Not only will this make home ownership more affordable for you, it can help start you on the path to establishing a real estate portfolio and financial independence.   Ask us if a second suite could benefit you, and we’ll show you how to plan, not just the apartment, but a brighter future.

Play Areas


Tired of asking your kids to pick up after themselves, or worse stepping on Lego™ pieces in the middle of the night when on a snack run to the kitchen?  A bright, well-designed play area in a finished basement should be an inviting sanctuary to children freeing up the main floor for more refined adult activities.
