    Customer Testimonial

              Their project managers and salespeople were easy to reach with questions. It was easy to communicate with them. Also, I appreciated that their crews were on time. I would like to recognize their project manager, Steve Marco. Katie, a lady in the office, was good too. She was our contact point at certain times.

    Customer Testimonial

              My husband and I were looking for a company to finish our basement. We had been thinking about it for a couple of years. Our kids were beginning to become teenagers, they need their own space. We saw another basement they had done in the area; we really wanted the basement for our kids and to have an entertaining space. My husbands from a really big family he is one of 8 and I have 25 nieces and nephews and we host Christmas. They provided a great presentation, were very well organized, and had a whole handout of offerings and how it will be laid out.

    Customer Testimonial

              Craig was patient, understanding, and very quick to act with all of our requests and concerns. Our job was a little strange because they also did work in our kitchen, and he was great managing both. Katie is one of the smartest, most organized and thoughtful planners we have ever encountered. It was nice to work with her because she knows this work so well that her suggestions were almost always what we went with. Some of the things we have received the most compliments are were totally her idea (and we do tell people that). The finishing of the product is a high quality. When we were looking at companies for this job, we were so impressed with FBP's open house, and now that they have completed our basement, we are still impressed with how well done everything is. No flaws!

    Looking to expand the living space of their home, this family decided to finish their basement to match the rest of their home. This basement flows perfectly with the upper levels of the home making it feel more like a lower level rather than a basement. High ceiling heights and finishing touches such as an open rail staircase add to the lower level feel. Featuring a home bar, bedroom, additional bathroom, and a home theater this space is perfect for everyone in the family.

    Hartland, MI Finished Basement with Open Floor Plan
    After

    This basement started out as a dark, blocked off space with too many walls and a poor layout. The homeowners were in need of a multi-functional space they could use for entertaining, as a home office, and a place for guests to stay. Opening up the basement to feature an open concept design allowed the floor plan of the entire basement to flow much nicer. There are now clear sight-lines from the main living space to the dining room, this makes the basement feel brighter and larger. This basement now feels more like a lower level rather than a basement.
