2005 Best Finished Basement

The clients had a fairly vanilla, partially finished basement that they rarely used. They wanted to rework the existing area and finish the remainder of the basement to create a media room and an entertaining room with wet bar. To open up the space, a row of steel columns supporting an 18-inch parallam beam on which the home was built. Temporary walls were installed on each side of the row of columns, the slab was cut and three new footings were installed. Three four-inch columns were strategically installed inside the new walls. The parallam was extracted. The I joists were cut and blocked to accommodate a steel I beam at a height that would provide a minimum of eight feet of headroom. All this was accomplished with ZERO impact on the living spaces of three stories above. Ventilation was installed under the slab to solve a high radon gas problem. The result is a showpiece entertainment and bar area.
