The Kids Rooms

One of the brightest pops of colour in the home is in the two rooms set aside for “the girls”. There are two wonderful rooms that are connected thru wall cutouts . One for sleeping and one for playing. 

Staying Alive “in the lower level

The 70’s vibe in the lower level make for a vibrant and fun family space

There’s plenty of additional  room as only about  half of the basement is finished. The finished part includes a bathroom and a great media room to kick back and watch the game or your favorite movie.

The Lower Level is partially above ground at the back of the home so the windows are big and bright. “It doesn’t feel like a basement,” says Collins.
