Basement Finishing | Family Room

Michael & Michele C. had a large open basement they wanted to use as extra living space so they called The Basement Doctor asking about our basement finishing services. The couple wanted to have the basement done in a couple of months, so we sent out our project manager, Nate Reed, to do an initial inspection of the space.

During Nate’s inspection he found some issues the homeowner’s weren’t aware of that needed to be addressed before starting the basement remodel. Our team repaired a wall crack, removed existing fiberglass insulation around the band board and walls, and installed energy efficient spray foam. To help protect the basement from future flooding, the team also installed a battery back up to the sump pump basin.

Once the repairs were completed, Nate created a design plan and 3D drawings of the space that closely matched what the couple had envisioned. Some of the installation options used included the Magic Wall, epoxy coating, and a blackout ceiling. The couple was so happy with the final results, they allowed us to showcase their basement as part of our gallery.

Etna Township is an attractive community with a rural atmosphere. It has a growing number of friendly neighborhoods and successful business developments. Etna is located in the southwest corner of Licking County on the fringe of the Columbus urbanized area.

Basement Finishing | Framing For BarThese Etna homeowners were searching for a basement finishing contractor for their home built in 2000, and decided to have The Basement Doctor out for an estimate. Nathan Reed, Project Manager, had a blank canvas to work with in this basement, but it wasn’t without its share of obstacles. The biggest challenge being a 4” plumbing line that was smack dab in the middle of the basement. Nathan skillfully designed a plan that would transform this drab basement into a remodel made for TV.

Basement Finishing | Drywall on Metal and Wood StudsThe layout included a plumbing closet to conceal the pipe, an L-shaped bar, entertainment and TV area, along with a half bathroom. This basement’s poured concrete walls are now framed and insulated using metal studs and our Magic Wall basement finishing system. The homeowner selected our blackout ceiling due to the cost, space savings and overall appearance in the basement. This is by far our favorite ceiling treatment, although we offer drop ceiling tiles and drywall as well.

Finished Basment With Blackout Ceiling and BarAlmost 90% of this basement finishing project was completed in just two weeks, with only some detail work spanning past that time-frame as we waited on additional building materials. Once everything was in place, the entire finished basement was decked out with Ohio State Buckeye swag. Now these homeowners have a comfortable and stylish space to entertain their friends and family, as well as host some big game parties in the future.
