The challenge was to create a great living area and exercise room and new laundry in this basement.
With some creative planning, we designed a basement using water proof materials. The "wood" floor is waterproof vinyl that looks like wood but can be washed and cleaned. We moved the walls in 3 feet to create plenty of storage, and installed cable and telephone throughout. With a 2x2 drop-in ceiling and ceiling lights, with carefully selected coves to hide pipe and wiring, the look is clean and bright. Some beams were built into walls (notice front right in before and the wall in the after) and the natural looking lines enclosing the pipes.
