Custom Basement Remodel in Suburban Spec Home

This remodel in Waunakee, WI all started with a problem homeowners hope to never encounter- water in the basement!

The homeowner had more problems with his basement than just a boring floor plan and outdated finishes. He had flooding. It damaged all of the flooring and the lower portion of some of the drywall. A remodel had already been on his radar, but now seemed like the perfect time to start fresh and make some significant improvements to the space.

A Better Home improved the layout of the space, re configuring the walls to create far more interest. We also added archways and display niches to make the space even more unique. Finish selections and colors create a warm space that still has that cool masculine feel.

The gem of this remodel is the library, with its custom made bookcase cabinetry and hidden door. The cabinetry is made to be deeper in the top portion and shallower in the lower portion. It fits perfectly around and over the foundation walls in the basement, disguising that they’re even there. The library cabinetry is crafted by Curt Broihahn of Broihahn Custom Woodworks in Lancaster, WI.

Read on below to see how A Better Home solves the problems this homeowner had with his basement. The final result is stunning!
