Most of our remodeling clients come to us seeking more than just cosmetic updates to their homes. We are often called upon to create additional living space for families that is more functional and better-suited to the family’s lifestyle. Such was the case with a recent basement remodel in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood.
Seattle Basement Dig-Down
When looking to add additional square footage to a home, remodeling a basement is often the simplest and most cost-effective way to add additional space. CRD Design Build specializes in basement remodels and dig-downs to create a daylight basement space or accessory dwelling units (ADUs.) With this Wallingford basement remodel, instead of creating an ADU, we added to the family’s existing living area by creating a large play space for their young son as well as a working office space and an updated bathroom. Like many older homes in Seattle, this home’s existing basement had low ceilings throughout much of the space. CRD dug it down to create an even amount of generous headroom throughout the entire footprint of the home, which helped to create an immediate transformation from unlivable, dark basement space to an open, bright area that serves as an extension of the main living area.
Basement Playroom Area and Office Space
The new basement area is the perfect place for the family’s young son to play with his toys without them cluttering up the main level of the house. The space also serves as additional office/work space for the homeowner to use late in the evening without disturbing the rest of the family. The homeowners were so pleased with the result they wrote this lovely review:
Just yet another example of how thoughtful planning, design and production by CRD helps to create an ideal lifestyle for our clients.
