“Village” Finished Basements
We are now offering "Glow Stone" concrete driveways, walkways, around pools, patios, sinks, and bars! These glow stones and sand are industrial strength and not found in toy stores. Glow stone and sand come in various colors such as blue, green, yellow, and red. Our stones and sand absorb the sun rays during the day and at night they light up for 12 hours! They have a life expectancy of 20 years! Glow stones and sand must be in a cleared area to soak up the sunlight.
Below are example photos of a Glow Stone Driveway, an Aura Sand Hologram Driveway, an Interior Concrete Floor. and a Glow Stone Pathway.
A "Village" finished basement is a layout of a town street. Each building front structure can be rowhouses, restaurants, shops, churches, bars, etc. These exteriors are room fronts for a recreation room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, home office, fitness room, playrooms, home theatres, etc. Mix up exteriors with siding, stone, and brick. Exterior light fixtures, windows, front doors, mailboxes, porches, and faux chimneys embellish the building fronts. The street (hallway) is lined with either stamped concrete, tile, or cobblestone pavers. Streets are 6 feet wide. Potted plants, picket fencing, and street lanterns enhance the feel of a quaint street. Depending on the size of your basement, design your village in street blocks. Name your streets with street signs, traffic lights, and street lanterns. A unique finishing option that will impress your family and guests. Kids will love riding their tricycles down the paved streets! Inlaws will feel they have their own homes! Paint the street's ceiling as a sky with clouds and birds. Weather is always great in your village finished basement!
