This basement remodel is part of an overall master plan to upgrade a beautiful Craftsman home in Madrona. The basement was remodeled in two easy stages, making a little more space and comfort for a growing family. For the first phase, we created a family room and rehabilitated an original, historic speakeasy. In the second phase we created a guest suite with three-quarter bath and renovated the laundry room. The new family room accommodates everyone with play space, media equipment, and a new gas fireplace that keeps it warm in the winter. The speakeasy is not only a conversation piece, but a functional bar that works perfectly for parties.
