Finished Basement Alternate

The Starter Home 2.0 project was founded with the mission to provide contemporary new homes in the context of established walkable neighborhoods, with the flexibility to accommodate growing households in future years. One of the ways in which both the Pleasant Ridge and Oakley home designs are able to accommodate the needs of growing households is by providing basement spaces that can be finished to create a 4th bedroom and 3rd full bathroom. While I elected to hold off on finishing the Pleasant Ridge basement, I am now strongly leaning in the direction of building out the basement in the Oakley Home 2.0 project from the start. In preparation for that, I have spent the past few days developing an additional drawing sheet for a finished basement alternate, which will allow me to list the project as a 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home, which I believe there is an incredibly strong demand for in the neighborhood and region. Below is an image of the finished basement plan option as it currently stands with renderings to come in the near future.
