Basement Additional Dwelling Unit- Morro Bay
Major cleanup was needed to bring this project to life.
Being on a hill, this home had a pretty extensive unfinished basement which gave us plenty of room to carve out a one-bedroom apartment. Before we could get started, though, we had to clear out years of clutter, dig down for a level foundation and shore up the driveway above. The wall behind the fridge was existing support for the main house above and had a large footer that could not be removed. We were able to cut a small section for the hallway but opted to just frame a super thick wall which allowed for the double-sided electric fireplace. Two-tone cabinets help draw your eye up, giving the space a larger feel. Light is always an issue in basements, but this space featured a standard-sized glass slider, kitchen window, and front door with ¼ lite, which brightened the whole space.
And it was worth it!
This Morro Bay ADU now pays the mortgage on this home.
