This Warren, New Jersey homeowners decided to remodel their basement. (The full project can be found here). Perhaps their main motivation was that the existing stairs were both open and led up into the middle of the kitchen. This created for an eye sore, but the stairs were also dangerous for their young child. The plan of attack became to move the stairs by the main staircase. In order to achieve this, the following components needed to occur:
- Structural Reframing
- Reconfiguring a bedroom
- Reconfiguring a closet
- Reconfiguring a hallway plus
- making the entry foyer crawl space a full height foundation
Here is a before, CAD rendering, and after glimpse of those areas.
The project was designed and developed by the Design Build Planners.
