Basement Renovation in the South Hills of Pittsburgh
The client built their home around 20 years ago, and it was time for the space to be re-purposed. Originally the area was divided in two areas with a half-wall, one side for their dog and the other side served as a playroom for their two children. The dog has since passed, their eldest child has left for college, and their youngest is now 13.
Their vision was to open up the space, clear out the clutter, and have a really nice billiard room. In addition to the usual finishes, we added a vented gas fireplace with a custom oak mantle and surround. We also added an 8′ wide wet-bar, with granite counter tops, dishwasher, and beverage center.
Looking at the room now, its it’s hard to imagine this is the same room I first saw back in July, with the dated dropped-ceiling, peel-and-stick flooring, and painted block walls.
