The client approached us to remodel and increase the size of 750s.f. one bedroom, one bathroom outdated basement townhouse to 1257s.f. two bedroom, two bathroom townhouse by utilizing two crawlspaces behind and under structure.
The complex was underbuilt and extra square footage was made available within the building footprint.

Boat building mentality had to be adopted to create as much space as possible and at the same time not waste any space with structural requirements. The space had to be entirely gutted, dug out from underneath and at the same time secure the 2 existing townhomes above. All systems were upgraded to high energy efficiency standards. The interior design was a collaboration between the owner and contractor.
