Basements & Beyond
General Contractors
Timbers traditional-basement


This spectacular basement has something in it for everyone. The client has a custom home and wanted the basement to complement the upstairs, yet making the basement a great playroom for all ages.

The stone work from the exterior was brought through the basement to accent the columns, wine cellar, and fireplace. An old world look was created with the stain wood beam detail, knotty alder bookcases and bench seats. The wet bar granite slab countertop was an amazing 4 inches thick with a chiseled edge. To accent the countertop, alder wainscot and travertine tiled flooring was used. Plenty of architectural details were added in the ceiling and walls to provide a very custom look.

The basement was to be not only beautiful, but functional too. A study area was designed into the plans, a specialized hobby room was built, and a gym with mirrors rounded out the plans. Ample amount of unfinished storage was left in the utility room.
