2009 Finished Basement


 Creating a space that is comfortable and well thought out for their frequently visiting grandmother was a priority for the homeowners. The overall layout of the basement was simplified and an in-law suite was fashioned, complete with vestibule that can dictate what are private and public spaces, depending on which door is closed. In addition, all interior doors use a translucent material called eco-resin, which is a post-industrial recycled plastic embedded with organic material to let daylight pass from space to space. In the bathroom, using remnant granite for the countertop and shower bench was an obvious choice. To also increase the efficiency of the space, a dual flush toilet and a low flow faucet and showerhead were used. The "true" test of this project was not the increased efficiency of the space, or use of green materials it was the approval that Grandma gave after enjoying her first night in the new space.
