The finished kitchen for this basement remodel looks great and is done on a budget.  It's amazing to see the finished area considering how much reframing had to be done. Substantial foundation work was required, including re-pouring parts of the existing foundation where it was inadequate.  It turns out that the existing house is now much more stable, thanks to the basement remodel Lots of storage in this area, thanks to tall pantry cabinets, basement kitchen remodel Craftsman style doors carry some of the main floor finishes into the basement area remodel, including this basement bathroom remodel The original boiler (seen here) had to be removed and piping reconfigured.  The new arrangement tucks all of the heating equipment into a space under the stairs. Seattle garage plans builders Before: a funky configuration and a deck/carport that had seen better days.
