Our Before and After Basement Photos


After 4 years we have been able to finish remodeling our basement. When we bought our house we knew there was mold in the basement. It was due to one of the previous owners never venting the dryer outside, they vented it into the drop ceiling of the basement. After being empty for 2 years having extreme ranges in temparture, mold grews. When we first started working on replacing every thing, we realized we had radon. So another step back and got that fixed.

This picture is what it looked like when we purchased the house.



Here it is after we removed the insulation, ceiling tiles and flooring.




And now:-) It is so warm and homey, I love being down there.



Paint done, lights need to come out.


Our new ceiling, lights and speakers.




The stairs coming down into the basement meeting the hardwoods at the bottom.



Nice ceiling tiles before huh? With indoor/outdoor carpet.



New paint







Now.....




We are so excited to have our basement back, just in time for the Superbowl party.
