M.J. Whelan Construction

Finished Basement - This condominium basement was designed
to create a distinct architectural look for a space that previously
had none. Elliptical archways and specialty moldings were installed
to create the look of a Mediterranean style wine cellar. A full kitchen
with Corian countertops, a fireplace and built-ins will make this l
ower level a great gathering place for friends and family. The
fireplace surround was custom built for this space and is solid
limestone. Two unattractive existing egress windows were
disguised and concealed by custom woodwork and stained glass.
They were designed and built in a way that gives them the
appearance of double hutches. Gotta love that! The completed
design compliments our client’s tastes and the homes
architectural style. Basement remodeling, Milford, Michigan

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"The homeowner has friends over frequently for cards, wine tastings and Bunko," Whelan says. A bar with comfortable bar stools between the dining area and kitchen provides a good perch for tastings.
