Nubbins Ridge

CITY:Knoxville, TN


The homeowners approached Earthadelic's construction and renovation team with a desire to complete the build-out of their unfinished basement. Like many Knoxville homes, their basement was a diamond in the rough.

After just five months, a slab floor and wall studs were transformed into a standalone living space that can be used as private overnight guest accommodations as well as a wonderful place to entertain friends and family.



Earthadelic's design team—including an architect on staff—worked with the homeowners to plan out a separate basement living area complete with bonus room, full kitchen and bar, guest bedroom, and a luxurious bathroom.



This construction project required Earthadelic to consult with a structural engineer in order to move an existing load-bearing support in the unfinished basement. The entire project was permitted through Knox County and required plumbing inspections, framing inspections and a final inspection to receive a certificate of occupancy.



Earthadelic installed a variety of stainless steel appliances, including undercounter refrigerator drawers, an undercounter wine fridge, a commercial ice maker, a dual convection/microwave oven, and a dishwasher.



Polished concrete floors, a backsplash done in mosaic tiles, and pops of brass in the lighting fixtures were just a few of the finishes chosen. The Earthadelic team worked hard to make sure the end result was just what the homeowners desired.

Countertops &


Solid wood cabinetry, crown molding, and quartz countertops—all in shades of white—provide a clean, modern look and will require little to no maintenance.



A few of the unique features of this construction project include a built-in tap for craft beer and sparkling water, frosted glass cabinet doors, and a shelf above the sink for cook books.



The bathroom includes a steam shower with properly sloped ceilings, a separate steam unit in the mechanical room, electronic touch controls, and a floating vanity.

Insulation &


Foam insulation was installed on exterior block walls to meet/exceed current energy efficiency standards. The workshop ceiling and stairwell were finished with a double layer of drywall and "green" glue to dampen sound, and solid core doors were installed throughout the lower level. The polished concrete floors are virtually maintenance free.
