Basement Remodel

We are putting the finishing touches on a lower level finish.  Part of this basement was finished years ago by a previous homeowner and we were able to expand on that for an economical addition to this home. This expanded finished area includes a television room, half bathroom and storage closet.

Finished Basement Remodel

We have completed the basement work that we blogged about earlier this week.  Here are pictures of the completed television room.

A Message from Jake Schloegel

One of the best parts of my job is visiting a completed project a few months after we have finished.  The homeowners have been enjoying their newly remodeled space and are usually eager to have us take some photos of it so we can post them on our web site.

Soffit Solutions

Hi Jake,

I have a soffit in my kitchen that I would like to remove to place 42 inch cabinets. I have an old home built in the 30's that has plaster walls. I removed the soffit wall so that I could also add insulation, but I found two pipes that come out about 4 inches from the wall.
