What is your basement’s ESP (extra space potential)? Answer just two questions to find out…
A. Is your basement currently:
- The storage area
- The laundry and/or workshop
- That space at the bottom of the stairs you avoid at all costs
- All of the above?
B. What extra space do you need in your home?
- Guest or income suite
If you answered any or all of the above then it’s probably time to undertake a basement renovation. You’ll be amazed at how much potential that wasted real estate actually has. However you need to determine what would be the most functional basement remodel to meet some or even all of your needs.
