“I’ve had my ABD – all but dissertation – degree completed for a while now,” Karen said. “Life keeps getting in the way of finishing.” Along the way, Karen started a company, built it, sold it, and raised two children. By any measure she’s an accomplished woman, but the fact she’d never finished her doctorate was really, really bothering her.
“So I decided to rearrange my priorities,” she said. “Otherwise, I’ll be in the nursing home working on this thing!” Making sure she had a quiet place to work in her Boston home was an issue. “My daughter lives here with her three kids,” Karen explained. “It’s a fun environment, to be sure, but it’s noisy. That’s why I called the Boston basement remodeling company.”
Karen’s desires were simple. “I wanted a quiet, bright place to study with a door that shuts.” She laughed. “Maybe I need to reference Virginia Woolf in my work!” Her concerns were that the basement was already crowded with a furnace, washer and dryer, and the family’s accumulated stuff, stored in green plastic totes. “Was there really going to be any room for me?”
Her Boston basement renovation specialists proved to be a valuable resource. “They looked at the space available and helped me figure out how things could be configured better. In addition to finishing the walls and putting in flooring and lighting, they had some great storage solutions that really freed up a lot of floor space.” Karen particularly enjoyed how the furnace and other vital home systems could still be easily accessed. “Now when it’s time for a service call, we just pop the wall panel open – so simple and easy!”
