Domus 2011 Reno-urbaine complete basement renovation, Pasteur, Ahuntsic
Finalist in the 29th edition. Interior and/or exterior residential renovation in the $150,000-$350,000 category
This growing young family hesitated between moving out of their large, split-level house dating from 1958 on a beautiful street in Ahuntsic or renovating it. They decided that the best way to maximize their usable space was to renovate the basement. While the original project basically focused on functionality, in the end, the basement had to be gutted: the underground plumbing and slab had reached the end of their useful life and needed replacing.
The final result was a healthy environment with a laundry room, an additional bedroom, a huge storage area, a family room and a luxurious bathroom with a bathtub and tiled shower. The owners are looking forward to enjoying the return on their investment now and for many years to come.
