Adding living spaces to our older homes is one tool to address the ongoing need for housing in Portland and the often underutilized basement can play a key role to meet this need. A basement remodel can also help address a growing or changing family, lessening the need to move away while also maintaining the architectural character of a neighborhood.

If you have ever considered a basement remodel, this all new AHC program offers the insight and expertise to help you get started. Design consultants Karen Richmond and Matt Sipes from the Neil Kelly Company will share tips and provide guidance on three common basement projects: the cosmetic remodel, Accessory Dwelling Unit construction, and foundation upgrades. You’ll learn about adding extra bedrooms and bathrooms, egress windows and doors, as well as seismic upgrades and waterproofing all designed to make the space both safe and comfortable.

Seating is Limited. Pre-Registration is Recommended.

Note: Parking on the street near the AHC is FREE on Saturdays.
