Timeline: 2 weeks
This growing Chatham, NJ family was in need of more bedrooms. They called us create a bedroom in their open, but finished, basement. In just two weeks we framed out a wall and closet, sheetrocked the room, installed new trim including baseboards, door casings, window casings, and a full interior paint job. Most importantly, we enlarged an existing window to allow for an emergency exit.
New Basement Bedroom
The first step our team took in this project was to create an egress window. This was necessary to meet code. The larger window also brought in a lot more light. After the window well was dug and the window was installed, we could start on the interior carpentry work.
Our team of carpenters framed out the walls for the new bedroom, as well as a new closet. During this time we brought in licensed electricians to install wiring for new ceiling lights.
The next step in the project was to sheetrock the walls. Our team used greenboard, which is a water resistant material, a popular choice for basement projects. Once in place it was taped and spackled.
To give the basement bedroom a finished look, we installed new baseboards, window casings, and door casings.
To maximize the amount of storage space in this bedroom our team at Monk’s created a custom recessed drawer unit. This unique utilization of space, would provide plenty of space to store clothes and other belongings.
Once all of the carpentry work was done our team gave the room a full interior paint job; a coat of primer followed by two coats of interior paint.
In only two weeks our team transformed a portion of this Chatham, NJ basement into a bedroom!
