We help our clients visualize their finished basement needs from both a planning and budgetary perspective.  Then we work together to build out your dream basement via our project managed approach and our unique client portal.  We’ll invite you to our offices to work closely with our designer to realize the tiniest details, and then we’ll build you a basement constructed to protect against mold and mildew for life by using basement appropriate non-organic materials instead of the typical gypsum drywall and wood studs that have no place in a basement environment.



In a market where home prices continue to rise at increasingly faster rates, the only way to get ahead with a single home is to consider its use as a second suite or basement rental property.  We call this “The Second Suite Solution.™”  Not only will this make home ownership more affordable for you, it can help you establish a real estate portfolio and financial independence.   Ask us if a second suite could benefit you, and we’ll show you how to plan and finance, not just the apartment, but a brighter future.



Nothing frees up more living space in a home for less than investing in a properly permitted, designed and built finished basement.  Let us sit down with you to look at your needs to plan the perfect basement together.






Adding a walk-out or basement entrance to your basement renovation plans can increase the functionality and accessibility of any basement, whether for personal use or to add direct access to an income suite while protecting your own privacy.  Add a direct entrance to an in-home office, nanny suite, or games room (ideal in summer!) and avoid tracking dirt and debris through the whole house. Penguin Basements can help you find an experienced Renomark™ foundation expert to install your walk-out.



Pool, Table Tennis, Poker, Table Hockey, Video Games… nothing helps you enjoy life more than a finished basement designed around the recreational activities you enjoy.  We can help you with layouts, lighting, and even design to make sure your games room is all fun and games.






Growing out of your home, but can’t afford a bigger place, or the inconvenience of off-site storage?  Let us transform your basement into an organized storage area that not only gives you more space for your stuff, but a place to enjoy it.  Sit down with our basement experts today and we’ll show you how to get all your need out of a finished basement.





Ah, living the high life, that’s the dream.  The basement environment is the perfect place to establish the family wine cellar.  Let us show you the latest in designs and trends to help you create the perfect retreat for the wine lover in your family.  Pair a built-in cellar with a bar, and some elegant seating and you’ll have a room more sophisticated than any establishment in town can offer.   And all without the dreaded markup on liquor.







Love Movies, but hate the crowds, the costs, and the stale popcorn?  Consider a home theater.  We can help you build the home theater of your dreams from mild to wild.  Whether you want a place for the family to enjoy their favourite movies, a gathering place for your sports buddies to cheer on the play-offs, or a first-run home theater experience for your closest friends to rival the best night out during TIFF, we can help you write the script.






A second kitchen for entertaining, or a place to eat while enjoying the benefits of your new living space in the basement, or the centrepiece of a Nanny Flat, Guest Suite or Rental Unit? Basement kitchens are something we specialize in. Heck, you can say Kitchens are something we specialize in.
