The Architectural Design Process The Architectural Design Process

The Golden Process

Design Step 1

Our process starts with an on-site meeting with a designer to understand your goals, expectations, needs, and wants. From there, we’ll develop a design, select materials, and prepare a detailed budget.

Refine Step 2

After the initial design, you’ll have time to review and consider all aspects of the project and refine it until you’ve signed off on the final designs and decisions.

Build Step 3

Once all the logistics are in place, we’re ready to get to begin construction. We will keep you informed throughout the build, and we aren’t done until the final walk-through ensures you’re thrilled with the results.

Our Basement Renovation Process

Golden Bee Homes proudly takes on every aspect of your basement renovation project. This simplifies the process because you don’t need to hire multiple companies to get the job done. Here’s what our design/build process entails:

  • Complete the design process: As a design/build basement renovation company in Toronto, we can take your project from concept to completion. The design phase involves creating drawings, renderings, and concept art to help you envision the final product. Our team also presents you with a detailed cost estimate, so you know our services will fit your budget.
  • Sign the contract and begin construction: Once we have your approval, our build team gets to work bringing your vision to life. We won’t deem the job complete until you sign off on the final walk-through of your finished basement.

Frequently Asked Questions About Basement Renovations

Is it worth finishing the basement?

Yes! Consider that, unlike other home additions, an unfinished basement already has walls, ceilings, and floors before you even begin to renovate, saving you money on your project. Basement renovations also offer unique opportunities to improve your quality of life, and the project offers an impressive return on investment of around 79%.

How much does it cost to finish a basement?

The project typically costs between $7 and $50 per square foot, so you could expect to spend between $7,000 and $50,000 to finish a 1,000-square-foot basement. If drywall and concrete floors are already installed, anticipate lower costs. If you install luxury fixtures and finishes, the price tag will land on the higher end of the spectrum. Don’t forget to factor in furniture and decor as well.

Is it legal to have a bedroom in the basement?

Yes. In fact, adding an extra bedroom or apartment suite in the basement is a popular trend in 2022. The bedroom must include a code-compliant egress window. This means the window must be large enough (at least 24 inches tall with a 5.7-square-foot opening) and low enough (no more than 44 inches above the finished floor) to escape through in an emergency.

We contracted Golden Bee Homes to do a basement renovation which included installing a new bathroom. Site supervisor Pars did an excellent job of coordinating the many sub-contractors to ensure that the project kept on schedule. As a result, our renovation project was completed on schedule which is something you don’t hear very often with home renovations. The sub-contractors showed up when expected and completed their work in a professional manner. We were very happy with the completed basement renovation, the quality of work and the attention to detail. We would definitely recommend Golden Bee Homes for any home renovations you are considering.

Core Value Highlighted in this Experience: Knowledge & Expertise

Simply outstanding. We've had 5 separate contractors work on our antique Victorian home over the last 15 years, all engaged to implement modern, state-of-the-art, minimalist/contemporary design directions within our 1896 exterior. Without question --and by a large margin --Jack and his colleagues at Golden Bee remain the hands-down winners in every respect. We would be hard-pressed to put our admiration of and appreciation for Jack and Golden Bee into words: they delivered superlative work under or within spitting distance of our budget; there were no surprises on budget or timing; their communication is excellent; their trades are highest quality in performance.

Core Value Highlighted in this Experience: Passion

From the outset, and throughout the project, Golden Bee Homes staff were a pleasure to work with. Theyprovided a package for our condominium corporation containing all necessary documents required -corporation application form, electrical and plumbing company licenses, insurance details, etc. The contractors were experts in their trade, respected our property and a pleasure to have in our home, since we lived there throughout the renovation. The results were everything we hoped for. The highlight of the project was working with Pars, a true expert, whose professionalism, and attention to detail ensured that the result was beyond our expectations We would not hesitate to recommend Golden Bee Homes to anyone.

Core Value Highlighted in this Experience: Passion

We worked with Golden Bee Homes in 2017 on a massive whole home renovation. We are very satisfied with our beautifully renovated home. Like with all big renos there were some bumps along the way. Jack and his expert and growing team did their best to make us happy and in the end we are! Just recently I reached out, 3.5 yrs after completion, to ask about some cabinetry repairs that needed doing (alignment on drawers). I asked if I should be in touch with the custom installers or whether GBH would take care of it. Well, take care, they did! Within a day I heard back from them and within 1 week, the repairs were complete. This company stands behind their "product" and…

There are so many different moving pieces and considerations when deciding to take on the adventure of building a custom home. One of the biggest pieces is obviously who you choose to take on to execute your build. After interviewing numerous builders we decided to go with Golden Bee Homes. Now, as we have lived in our beautiful home for almost a year, we can say with the upmost confidence that we made the right decision. From the beginning Jack, Apo and Daron were honest, upfront, transparent and ethical when it came to the planning and execution for our project. No plan is completed without difficulties, workarounds, and compromises. However, even in the middle of a pandemic, there were very few issues that we…
