Asked by Martha, Seattle, WA • Mon Nov 14, 2011
Our 1905 yr. old house (Seattle, upper QA) is in great condition w/ a footprint of 700sqft, a 4000sqft lot & a 500sqft detatched 2 car garage. The main flr has an entry, living rm, dining rm & kitchen. The 2nd flr has 3 bedrooms & a full bath w/ a clawfoot tub (no ceiling height for a shower). 1/2 of the daylight basement is finished & used as a family rm; the other 1/2 has a finished 3/4 bath (tiny shower), finished stairs/landing, an unfinished storage rm, & an unfinished hallway w/ a stacked w/d, & furnace/water htr. We are planning a basement remodel (no more than $60k) but aren't sure how extensive it should be. We want to finish the unfinished 1/2, put new flooring in family rm & stairs/landing, & remodel the bathrm. Should we also expand the bath & laundry & make the stairs/landing less claustrophobic? Doing so means sacrificing the storage rm & relocating the w/d & water htr/furnace. Would gaining a full bath & laundry but losing storage help or hurt resale someday?
