Total Basement Finishing of Western NY Case Studies: Creating A Basement To Meet Their Needs In Buffalo, NY

Wednesday, October 28th, 2020 by Catherine Kwiatkowski

Challenge

In the spring of 2019 a homeowner contacted us about refinishing their semi-finished basement in Buffalo. They were thinking about making a bedroom and possibly a living space in the basement but they weren't really sure about how they wanted things to look. They just really wanted to change the basement so that it wasn't just one large space anymore.

Our Design Specialist met with the homeowners and discussed options with them. To have a bedroom in the basement they would need to have an egress window installed, but they didn't want to install an egress window. (Note: The New York State building code regarding egress windows has changed since we finished this project, starting in May 2020 all habitable living spaces in basements need to have egress windows installed at the time of renovations.) 

Solution

Our Design Specialist worked with the homeowners to create a basement office, storage closet, and a basement living room that would break up the basement and let them use the space in a way that would free up a bedroom on the main floor so their space met with their current needs. The homeowners really liked this design idea as it would leave them with a comfortable living space, storage, easy access to their sump pump and utility boxes. They chose to wait a few months to have to work done, and we finished this project for them in January 2020.
