Guest Basement Remodel
– Corvallis, OR –
Envision having flex space in your home for out-of-town guests, an older relative, or college-age children. These homeowners wanted a guest retreat that didn’t look like a basement. This 1,200-square-foot basement was remodeled for work, play, and hosting out-of-town guests.

The existing 900-square-foot unfinished daylight basement offered plenty of potential, but there were some significant design challenges. Ducting for the heating system hung overhead, the furnace was poorly placed, and there was a concrete slab floor.
The homeowners invited numerous contractors to take a look at the project and selected Powell Construction because of our ideas for reconfiguring the space. Ductwork was carefully redesigned to be hidden in soffits. Walls were rearranged to take the furnace out of the master bedroom space. Laminate flooring, carpet, and tile were used to cover the concrete.
A Delta faucet with Venetian Bronze finish pairs well with a Steller LG HiMacs integrated sink with a standard radius edge. Tile was selected for the bathroom floor and Wilsonart maple laminate flooring for the hallway. You would never know that this all used to be concrete!
Complete with a full kitchen, bath, and laundry room as well as spacious dining and living rooms, this guest retreat can be used in a multitude of ways.
A covered patio was added to the exterior entrance to increase curb appeal. This creates some visual interest and at the same time offers protection from the elements when entering the guest apartment from the outside.
