Two professionals with a young, growing family were looking for more square footage and a unique space to be able to relax and wind down. After interviewing a few different companies, they contracted with us for both the design and construction of a custom, lower-level, finished basement.
With the rest of the house slowly being overtaken with kids’ toys, this couple wanted their new basement space to reflect a professional, young adult vibe. Complete with a comfortable lounge space, a contemporary style wet bar, and even a tucked away kids’ play room behind frosted glass double doors, the finished product is now the perfect, peaceful place for the couple to relax together after long days at work.
The client gave us the special task of developing a design concept to creatively pay homage to the University of Michigan, where they met. Our team went to work and tracked down a slab of Michigan-grown white pine, which is the state tree and we etched the university logo into it. This special piece was incorporated seamlessly into the basement design, providing a classy, meaningful reminder for the client and making their new space even more special.
