Project #1 - 12613 Burt Street

The homeowner’s design was to upgrade the existing finished basement and turn it into a more inviting family room for viewing TV and enjoying a warm cozy fire. One area was finished off with custom maple cabinets that would house a small refrigerator, microwave, and a flat screen TV in addition to concealing the water meter. The upper cabinets have clear glass panels. The project included installing a Staron Tempest solid surface countertop with a bar sink. New wiring was installed in the room for surround sound around the TV and recessed ceiling lighting.
The area around the fireplace required the existing wall to be reframed, allowing the fireplace to be recessed so not to impede into the living area. A Yosemite Home Décor wall hung electric fireplace was installed giving the area a warm cozy feeling; the fireplace also has the ability to heat the room if desired.
The door leading to the basement was removed and the area was finished to create an open doorway entry.
The main level powder room was also remodeled. A Europa vanity and matching mirror, a black granite vanity top, and a stone vessel sink was installed. Ceramic tile was installed on the entryway floor, and continued into the powder room.
