CLIENT COMMENTS:  
From the 3 kids:
Tom:  "It's cool. I like the basement because we can eat in it".
Sam:  "I like our computer desk, our Playstation area, and the big screen
TV.  It is an awesome place for sleepovers!"
Cade:  "It's my favorite place in the house."
From Mom:
I love our "room to grow" basement.  It is probably more space than we
need now, but with the prospect of three boys growing up, I feel like the
house can take them.  And the great built-in shelves are close to full
already.  It is so wonderful to be able to hide the toys occasionally.  The
extra living space suits our lifestyle totally.  We enjoy the entertainment
area where movies at home make weekends together a total joy.  The guest
room space works well short term and could potentially be a longer term
visitor's suite as well.  The kitchen and fantastic bathroom allows almost
apartment like privacy.  We have all enjoyed the steam shower, and it is
super after a workout.  The storage room allows me to use every inch of the
basement efficiently.  And now our three cats also have a place to hide.

And the best part is that Sylvain did a great job in designing the project
so that it doesn't look like a basement.  There are no support beams
whatsoever.  Lighting is great with the French doors, the bedroom and exit
door, as well as the glass block "fake" windows.  The light wood used in
all the built-ins makes the light open, feeling of the rest of the house
consistent throughout the basement as well.  Sylvain's workers were
friendly, polite and cleaned up after themselves.

All in all, we are very happy with the results and thrilled that we made
the commitment to "fix it up!"  Thank you to Sylvain and Absolute
Remodeling."
