Abarent Construction Ltd. teamed up with Aquarian Renovations Ltd. to create a new space in an old historic houses’s basement. Prior to Abarent’s involvement the 1800 sq. foot basement had less than 6 feet of head room. The new owner of this property wanted to be able to develop the space and make it a functional, usable extension of their home. Abarent set about designing an Engineered Interior PWF Wall System that enabled them to effectively lower the basement floor. When this basement floor lowering project was complete there was 7’10” of head room and a new concrete floor. All Engineering Inspections complete, Abarent turned the project over to Aquarian Renovations Ltd who developed the basement space and renovated the remainder of the house. What transpired created a beautiful home that the current owners enjoy with their growing family.
