Rocky Ridge Square

With this Calgary home, our clients already had an existing basement. Our work was to demolish the existing basement and install a new one with additional space, functionality, and aesthetics. To accomplish this goal, we implemented a new bedroom, bathroom, and redid the large main living area.

Elkton Way

Overall, the major goal for the basement installation for this Calgary home was to provide something that had many of the functions and features we often provide, but also was completely wheelchair accessible. This mentality changed several key aspects of the installation, from the way the bathroom was constructed to the addition of oversized barn doors to adding extra backing throughout the basement.

Rundleville Place

This Calgary home posed a unique challenge for our team, as there was an existing basement already in place. To accommodate our client’s needs, we demolished the existing basement before installing another one with all the features the client wanted. These included setting up a bathroom and bedroom. However, the clients also wanted additional features and functionality for the central space.
