Hilltop Crawlspace Conversion
The goal of this project was to merge a 300 sqft dirt crawlspace with an existing 600 sqft basement and build-out all 900 sqft. We combined the design for the total 900 sqft to include a theater area, office, bedroom and ¾ bath. The design afforded us the opportunity to remove the existing staircase and add a new wider staircase into the basement in a more central location. The old staircase was by the back door and was sealed off and became a mudroom with custom cubbies, coat hooks and a bench seat.
We excavated the 300 sqft 3’ high crawl space to 9’ ceilings and this became the theater room. We structurally removed a section of the bearing wall to the old crawl space to make the hallway to the rest of the 600 sqft. This area became the space for the new office, bedroom and ¾ bath.
Custom finishes like knotty alder crown molding, wall sconces, a dry bar, granite countertops and cork flooring added to the superb look of this renovation. A reading nook was designed under the stair cavity to take advantage of every usable area.
