It's Saturday night. Do you know where your teenagers are?


The increase of additional living space at the lowest cost

Increase your square footage of up to possibly 33%.  It is the best value per sq/ft.  Imagine the resale value of more finished space. Finished basement remodeling brings in the best percentage of return (70%) for any major remodeling activity according to the 2018 Cost/Value report put out by Remodeling magazine. Remodeling a basement is about one quarter to one third the cost of adding an addition of the same size.

Comfortable family space, exercise room, entertainment.

Games, a pool table, foosball for friendly competition, Thursday night card games and even a professional home theater. Children can run around without messing up the upstairs and you can just close the door when guests arrive. Often people want a flex space that can be utilized by different members of the family. Workshops to dog washing stations, the uses are unlimited.

A great space for a guest bedroom suite.

Why use valuable spatial real estate upstairs for a room that is likely only used several times a year. Once relocated, you and your guests will appreciate having complete privacy. You can now use the extra well-lit room upstairs for an office or a yoga studio. With many of today's extended families, an in-law suite with a kitchenette has been very popular with Architecturally Speaking’s clients.

Have your home be the place where the teenagers gather.

It’s great having a space where you can monitor and get to know your kid’s friends better.

Would you rather have your kids and their friends hang out safely at your home . . . or somewhere else?
