Garage Conversion Process

A lot more goes into converting a garage than most people might consider.

  1. Starting with the interior, the garage needs to be brought up to the same standard as the rest of the home. This will include insulation, drywall, and a refinished ceiling.
  2. If you require plumbing and drainage for a sink, shower, bathtub, or toilet, the piping for that will need to be installed. We’ll consider the rest of your home’s plumbing when connecting the new plumbing.
  3. Electrical wiring for lighting and outlets will also need to be expanded upon. Exposed utilities, such as the hot water heater or electrical box will need to be safely covered or moved elsewhere.
  4. If you are not using a standalone unit, air conditioning ducts will need to be extended from the main home to provide proper heating and cooling.
  5. The exterior will also need some work. You’ll need to decide if you want to keep the garage door as is. If not, we can uninstall it and refinish that section to match the rest of the home’s exterior seamlessly.
  6. We can also add or update doorways, both between the garage and house and from the garage to the outdoors. If you plan to convert the garage to be an independent mini home or apartment, adding fixtures such as an outdoor walkway or porch entry can be a nice touch.
