Basement Remodel

Need more room?  Look no further than your own unfinished / unexcavated crawlspace – basement!  (I just saw that ‘unexcavated’ isn’t in the dictionary but I know I’ve seen it before so I’m keeping it in..) Construction continues at this Inner Sunset house where we dug down about 4′ to create a guest room.  The photos above are a few weeks old and today the room is framed in as seen below.  The new south-facing window will bring in lots of light.  It peeks out onto the driveway, the only part of the room low enough for a window.  (that’s tape, not red paint..) The reconfigured, spacious stair goes down to the enlarged Family Rm (‘man cave’) at the back of the house.  Above, the stair will be open along the side to the newly enlarged Dining Rm. On the landing of the new stair is a tall south-facing window.  Next to it is a tiny, formerly exterior closet window that was kept – a whimsical little detail!  The back of house was opened up with new doors and windows, onto a new deck which is now being tiled with __________ chosen by the owner.  I like the 45° angle pattern – keeps it interesting.  There will be a glass guard rail around the perimeter soon. 

As I was at the site today, a Peregrine Falcon landed on a pole just behind the deck!  Pretty cool bird…it was glaring at something, maybe a pigeon or a mouse, but it flew away empty-taloned.
