Grillo from microwave corner flat

New Blue “Chill Out” Space

  • Grillo from microwave corner flat
    Our goal was to take a musty basement "junk space" and turn it into a cozy and safe "hang out" for the parents and new baby.
  • Grillo Pano from closets_wrk
    We moved a lot of old unsafe wiring, shifted the location of the heat pipes, and rerouted the drain pipes. We also insulated the perimeter of the basement to reduce drafts up on the 1st floor.
  • Casework
    We built the shelving in our shop. Besides a great place to display art and books, the new casework hides most of the heat pipes and drain pipes. The wall cap and trim are custom finished cherry.
  • ERV
    An ERV ( Energy Recovery Ventilator) exchanges heat or a/c with the new fresh air as it enters the room. No reason to waste good energy!
  • head trim
    The crew milled the head casings over the doors to match the casings upstairs.
