Due to the narrow lot and minimal setback from the neighbors
property we chose to use this foam foundation formwork system.
It allowed us to leave the formwork after the pour
so we didn't tear up the neighbors yard to retrieve our forms.
In addition it provided the insulation for the basement,
was pre-piped with electrical boxes, and also has a rigid interior spaced equally for the installation of drywall.
meant we had no framing to complete and could install the drywall over the Styrofoam forms also saving some square footage
for this new guest bedroom.
By redesigning the entire space within the home and
installing some nice friendly stairs we were able to create some nice areas.
The new open floor plan really surprises
the visitors when the enter the home.
The picture above shows the finished main floor as seen from the front door.
Here we are framing the new Master Bedroom.
