Example 2 - Basement Remodel, East Perspective.

This most inviting guest facility occupies the formerly open basement of a classic box home constructed in 1907(See Exterior Painting, Older Homes, Classic Box Example 3). As is the case in nearly all Torgerson Company construction, the design was the creation of Client-Company collaboration. What a treat for out of town guests to be so ensconced.
