Project of the Month: The Wilkinson Family Basement Transformation

Posted in Blog | No Comments

The Wi2lkinson basement was transformed by using special and personalized finishes that helped give the space new life. As you enter, you are welcomed by a remarkable glass barn door that opens up to a decorative and impressive collection of wines. The wine storage is double sided and can be accessed from the both sides. The beautiful detailed work, completed by the Finished Basement trade partners, adds to the warm and inviting atmosphere of the space. “All of our [trades] were great and reliable, also very friendly.”

In order to make the basement flow with the rest of the house, it was important for the designer to bring the transitional architectural elements of the rest of the house into the finished basement. The project was certainly not without its challenges. One of the biggest was figuring out how to move a large piece of metal, seen on the back 27wall of the bar, into the space. The metal piece holds glass shelving on the bar, and it was fabricated off site. There was a lot of planning involved in order to get the entire piece down to the basement without damaging it in the process.

A special an38d personalized designed aspect of this basement is the Gun and Rod room. It is important to the homeowner that he has a place to store and display his guns and fishing rods. Custom cabinets needed to be designed in order to meet his needs and display his collection properly and beautifully.

It was important to the home owner to incorporate signage for the bar that was salvaged from a demolished building. The BAR letters that were retrofitted with LED lighting. When lit up, the letters added a special touch to the overall look of the space.

The overall results of this space are outstanding. From the custom design work in the gun room to the fine details of the bar, to the smooth transition from the rest of the house to the basement, the Wilkinson basement is a space that provides charm and uniqueness. The14 family is excited to share their space for years to come. “We are very satisfied, Finished Basement should also highlight the Builder Trend software, it is a great app.”
