Description: The family in this home decided it was time to dig the media room out of the basement and open the home up to garden parties. The project scope included excavating the side yard down to the basement level and opening up the basement with large bi-folding doors into the new sunken garden. Flagstone steps connect the side yard to the backyard where the charcoal grill, gas BBQ and smoker are sheltered under a trellis system. Meanwhile, the basement remodel included a media room, game room and wine cellar, finished in stained white oak with turn-of-the-century details that capture the character of the home.
