Stephenson Construction, LLC

Location: Mliton, Ga. | Project Cost: $394,550
Square Footage before: 2,000 | Square Footage after: 1,800

The basement owners are a couple in their late 30s/early 40s with a preschool daughter and another child on the way. The husband, who traveled frequently for work, desired an oasis to recharge and entertain guests. The wife wanted the space to have a practical daily function, including a playroom, workout area and a sauna. The couple chose the Cambria Bentley quartz countertop as the basis for the basement design, which included contrasting colors and bold lighting and plumbing fixtures.

The project challenges included creating an executable plan based on the couple’s vision, removing the doorway and wall to create an open stairway, and balancing the bold gold and subdued matte black finishes. The team created an open flow to the main level, expanding the areas for guests and adding more detail to the wine cellar.
