Basement remodel a social butterfly

Architect - Tom Pollok , Contractor - John Lesjack , Kitchen designer - April Spagnolo

Written by: Christopher Lawton

When Ben and Shawn purchased their Washington home three years ago, the basement was divided up into a series of rooms. “Our intention was always a basement remodel in order to open it up and allow light to flood the entire room,” says Ben.

So when Tom Pollok of Marezzo, Ltd., first met with Ben and Shawn about an unrelated project, he had no idea that the meeting would eventually set the stage for a complete remodel of the couple’s 2,200-square-foot basement. Pollok was initially brought in to design stone columns for the couple’s first floor entry hall. But after seeing his design presentation, as well as the framed pictures and magazine articles of his other work, the homeowners decided they wanted Pollok to redesign their basement.
