Modern Farmhouse Basement

Designer: Cat Schmidt, Model Remodel
Location: Sunset Hill, Seattle, WA
Scope: Basement, ADU

This Sunset Hill home needed a lift in order to transform the basement into a livable dwelling space. Lifting a home is a great way to add space and increase value without taking away square footage from your yard. It’s also a surprisingly economical way to approach a change to your living space, as it avoids the costs of selling and purchasing a new home (broker and legal fees, taxes, moving costs, etc).  To learn more about the lift visit our blog post: Going up! House Lifting 101

With this accessory dwelling unit, the homeowners and our team created a modern farmhouse aesthetic with a barn door, laminate “wood” countertops, polished concrete floors, an exposed beam, and barn lighting. Simple, clean and highly convertible as a guest space or eventually a rentable unit, this basement maximizes every inch of space.
