I would avoid putting a shitter in it, but thats just a personal preference.
It’s hard to break up that front door parking, but I just mean how it blends into the house. Some people can make it look right. Others, not so much. We turned ours into a weight room. I haven’t parked in a garage in a very long time.
funny you mention that ours will be a gym for the first year or until we join a gym. We have a crapper near in a different area. Fired up about getting a TV and cable mounted once complete. Hopefully after we paint the whole house it will look smooth. This home owning BS is expensive like a mother flipper.
Home owning is expensive unless you have mad skills as a plumber, electrician, carpenter, painter and roofer. Which I don't. I am a good painter but I am no longer willing to do a big project myself.
In 2000 I hired the guy who cuts my grass to put a new roof on my house. I thought it would last at least 25 years but a couple of years ago I had to replace it. Seems my yard guy just nailed the new shingles on top of the old ones and didn't replace any bad plywood and I started to get leaks.
Do you plan to sell the house? If so, you might want to skip the conversion and go get a bigger house. Converting the garage will make the house go down in value unless you add another garage. So you are paying more for the conversion than you think. Not only will the house be worth less, it will take longer to sell (which could cost you more money).
That is true. But at the same time, there are some people that jump on it. I have seen one converted garage, but the people built a separate carport in front of it. The biggest selling point about doing that (and maybe why they did it), was that they had an extremely long driveway. The conversion looked awful, but points for the carport.
"Fast Eddie lets shoot some pool" Learned pool on an old Brunswick with leather pockets. The movie The Huster inspired me to learn the game. Used to hustle a bit around NOLA. Got too dangerous as I got better rough crowd to try to hustle. Al Werling was the best shooter in the city at that time but ever tried to play him had too many thugs surrounding him.
Hire a contractor. The shitty taste of a bad job lasts a lot longer than the sweet taste of cheap.
He should go to Home Depot and grab a few of the Mexicans hanging around looking for work. They will work hard all day for the price of a Burrito Supreme.
