Have you converted your garage?

we are in the process of converting it into an extra space for hanging out and what not... just wondering if you had any ideas or had done it before?

  • BEFORE - Our original Garage - it was too narrow for any of our vehicles to fit into and get out a regular door  - I'd have to climb out the back door or our Windstar at the time.

    This is what it looks like after - but before we put hickory hardwood floors in.  We raised the floor to the same level as the house, bricked in the front and put in a window and put in french doors in the back.

  • Don't have a garage, but I do have this over sized shed that is right next to the house that my husband is going to attach to the house. He is going to make it as our master bed room then put a bathroom on it so we can have our own bath room.
