I have been working with local clients redesigning their basement. They had a water leak and since the space had to be refinished they decided to renovate instead of refinishing a space that didn't work for them. When starting a project the most important part is the design plan. If you work with a designer you get the benefit of working out your plan in the most efficient and aesthetically pleasing way possible on paper before any work begins.
