Sanford Stadium – Ohio

Complete Basement Renovation

This project was our second large project with the homeowners (the first being a rear covered deck). This familiarity with the Creative staff and our Design/Build process allowed for a fun and positive remodeling experience.

The homeowners have 2 young children and were looking for an adult space to entertain friends and family during Georgia Football Games, or whenever it’s 5 o’clock somewhere.

The Challenge

A design that allowed for multiple rooms of different uses/functions for the whole family, while keeping a large area of unfinished space for storage.

Existing structural posts posed a layout challenge early on, but proved to be an easy work-around when our architecture and design team, along with the homeowners collaborated and provided a design that flows well and captures the wants of the homeowners.

Materials & Specialty Items

Ample seating, multiple TV’s, beers on tap, and plenty of wall space for memorabilia was top of the list for these homeowners. Our Selections Coordinator worked diligently during the material selections process to pull together a mix of stained wood tones to bring warmth and coziness to a lower level. Light, bright, and durable Mannington Luxury Vinyl Planks in Kona Beach was the perfect flooring selection for the high traffic areas. A mirrored backsplash tile installed with a diamond pattern was inspired by the design of the homeowners’ rocks glasses. The backsplash and it’s reflections provide a beautiful backdrop to the bourbon collection being displayed on the floating shelves, hung between custom-made rustic beams, with matching beams framing the main TV just steps away.

Not to be outdone by the bar, a walk-in wine room is the first thing you see when coming down the stairs. Our homeowner jokes this is her “panic room”. The walls are adorned with a custom plaster mixed with glass and crystals to give a rustic yet glamorous look. With wine storage for over 300 bottles, no need to panic here!

This lower level also features a workout room, a full bath, and a large bedroom with new egress window. This beautiful new space provides our passionate Bulldog fans a Sanford Stadium experience in Montgomery Ohio!

Project Drawings

We have used Creative for two projects - a covered deck/outdoor living space with a fireplace and finished basement with a bar, entertainment area, bedroom, bathroom, exercise room, and wine room. Both finished projects are incredible and are the most used spaces in our home. Their design, craftsmanship and attention to detail are all phenomenal. Both experiences with their team were also incredible. I was pregnant during both projects and they were patient and understanding in working to meet my “baby deadlines.” Their team (including their chosen subcontractors) is kind, easy to work with and considerate. Their team has watched our family grow and truly cares about us and our home. We will continue to use Creative for our home improvement projects and have already reached out to them for a third project. If you need a contractor, look no further!
