Remodeling Need

This Lafayette family was finally ready to turn their unused basement into a reclaimed family room—fit for entertaining.

Remodeling Solution

Riverside Construction started this fabulous basement renovation by converting an existing window to an egress window to meet International Building Code (IBC) standards, which requires all basements to have at least one “emergency escape and rescue opening”.

With a big design idea and plan in place, Riverside built a large TV entertainment area complete with a built-in dry bar, dedicated exercise room, and a 3/4 bathroom perfect for guests.  The bathroom was designed with a large glass-enclosed shower, Wellborn Select Series Hancock Square Cabinets in Glacier, Shaw Set In Stone Vinyl Flooring and a Cosmos Quartz Yukon Gold countertop with Half bullnose edge.

An unfinished basement is the perfect blank canvas to create just about any space you can imagine. For more ideas on how you can convert your unfinished basement read Breathtaking Design Ideas for Your Basement Renovation.
