Before making the decision to carry on with the necessary works, it will be important to understand both the fire code and the zoning laws that govern homes and rental spaces.
The basement apartment layout would be very similar to that of an ordinary apartment. There will be a living room, a kitchenette, a bedroom, a storage space, a bathroom and a laundry room with a washer and dryer set stacked as a combo unit depending on the height of the ceiling. If space allows, the washer and dryer set can be placed side by side. Ottawa Home Pros has a rich gallery to provide clients with ideas for a finished basement.
