Excavation and a small addition to a basement provide light and space for all the homeowner's activities.
Better All-Round Excavating along the rear wall and adding 174 square feet completely transformed the basement. The homeowners now have a sunny yoga room, a media room, a second full bath, and a fi nished laundry area. The addition also dramatically improved the home’s rear elevation, which had been a fl at, largely blank face. And because the scale and detailing of the addition are sensitive to the original, the home’s Craftsman style hasn’t changed; rather, it has been improved.
