Your Basement – Unearth the Opportunity!
Maybe your old Toronto home basement seems like a pretty hopeless space right now. Is it dark and damp? Do you have to duck to avoid bumping your head on beams, pipes or ducts? The staircase is too narrow and the floor is uneven, or maybe there are big brick pillars making it impossible to use the space the way you’d like to. You’ve probably heard about the possibility of underpinning your basement to gain more headroom, but maybe it seems like a scary, dangerous and expensive idea and you’re wondering if your basement could ever really be transformed into high-quality living space.
