Expecting a new addition to their family, the homeowners of this 1940s property in Ottawa South were eager to transform their existing basement into a safe, comfortable living space. The basement, which had seen its fair share of ad-hoc modifications over the decades, was not just outdated but posed real safety concerns. Issues with mould, electrical wiring, and plumbing were just a few of the challenges lurking beneath the surface.
With a clear vision, we embarked on this project, stripping the old basement down to the foundation walls. As we dug deeper, we unearthed decayed underground plumbing drains nearing the end of their lifespan. Undeterred, we replaced and upgraded everything to modern building standards, ensuring a safe and comfortable environment for the growing family.
The transformation was not just about meeting building standards; it was about creating a space where memories would be made and cherished. The homeowner was so pleased with our work that they took the initiative to leave us a glowing Google review without any prompting! Now that’s a successful basement transformation story!
