Basement Remodel Project in Stonehouse, Toano – near Williamsburg – Virginia

“Not many people know where Toano Virginia is, so we just say Near Williamsburg,” the locals tell us.  Stonehouse is a prestigious community, well known for it’s golf course and beautiful homes.

Our clients in Stonehouse, Toano Virginia asked us to make their dream of a finished basement come true.  They had some great ideas about what they wanted and also some sound performance goals for this area of their home.   They were interested in a having a stone wall in the sitting area and sound proofing installed as part of the design as they felt that the neighbors across the way in the rear of the home were much too noisy with loud dogs and amplified music.  We installed Homasote soundproofing boards across the rear wall to abate the sound.  Windows across the rear wall were supplemented with double panes to provide dead air space between the exterior window and the interior of the home.  The french doors received storm doors on the exterior.

A new bathroom was added as well as a kitchenette, sitting area and guest bedroom to the finished basement area.
