Throughout this Thornton, Colorado remodeling project we finished out a basement, remodeled the kitchen and updated the master bathroom. The living room used to have a large fireplace and mantle in front of the stairway. We removed it and installed a new rail with spindles yielding better connection between the upstairs and down. In the basement the side of the stairway was also opened up to connect the spaces better. We love how the bar turned out and the connection between all the spaces in this home.
