Two Generations Of Design In One Finished Basement

A homeowner in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts, has a husband and two children. Her mother is generously paying to finish their basement. She is very involved in the project, and the two of them have worked together to decide the details of how they would like the space finished. Ultimately, they decided on using a vinyl wall system, gray Elite Plank flooring and a drop ceiling. They also added specialty custom items such as shelving at the stairs, and a washer dryer set up in the finished laundry room.

An Entertainment Room in Chelmsford!

A couple in Chelmsford work from home and have children who are educated remotely. They need more space for their children to play in the home and for entertainment. For that reason, they decided to finish their basement. The result is a beautiful and functional space!

An Office and Family Room in Salem, NH

Problem: A hard-working couple in Salem, New Hampshire, is looking for a way to expand their home. The wife runs a business out of their house, and they are expecting their first child in just a few months. Although they have a spacious basement, it is unfinished and full of storage items.


Solution: We finished their basement, creating three spaces for them. The first was an office and family room, the most significant space. The second was a laundry room, and the third was for their other utilities. The office was a great space where the wife was able to work, and could be easily transitioned into an entertainment space.

An Unfinished Basement is Transformed Into an Elegant Entertainment Area

Challenge: An unfinished basement can be a great place to store the items that just won’t fit in your home. The problem is an unfinished basement with occasional flooding, poor insulation, and a surplus of dust and mildew can be the opposite. This couple has ample basement space, but it isn't being utilized in its current state.


Solution: To turn their spacious storage area into an entertainment space and full bathroom, we installed elegant linen ceilings and an EverLast perimeter wall system. We then replaced the treads with finished oak and primed risers and used gray ThermalDry Elite Plank Flooring for a more cohesive appearance. Finally, we added a SaniDry system to limit moisture and a sewage ejector for the full bath. This completed their gorgeous new entertainment space. 

Roomy Man Cave Along with Spaces to Exercise and Read!

This homeowner of this Auburn home had a simple vision with a unique twist, and TBF was happy to oblige. Their basement was one big room, like many, and the homeowner wanted to add some dynamic features to spice it up and get more out of the space. Since the upstairs was getting more crowded, the basement was to be transformed into a man-cave, complete with a workout area, a play area for the kids, and even a reading nook under the staircase. All in all, the homeowner wanted to change a bland basement into a dynamic space that could open up the rest of the house and make everybody happy. 


TBF took this request in stride and provided an excellent solution for the homeowner. We took this previously neglected space and turned it into a fully furnished man-cave that the homeowner could work out and have some relaxation time in. Their kids could also play in the pleasant dry space, and take advantage of the new reading nook that could fit a twin mattress in. With the installation of the paintable system and Elite plank flooring paired with SaniDry, their new basement not only fits the desired purpose, but also looks fantastic.
