Does our older child need a little more liberty? Your work from home or maybe you just feel that you need another room for a special project  that you want to start? Then the solution is to construct a new addition to your garage.

By making an addition to your garage you can add to the living space in your house, no matter what type of garage you own: detached or attached to the house. The space above the garage can be converted into a private living space for your older child, guests or a live-in parent.

You can convert your garage into your home office. You could very well find here the peace and quiet needed  for your work. Also, the new addition can be converted into a music studio if you put some simple sound proofing measures into place.

In order to start planning for your garage addition, first prepare a budget and then hire a professional because this is a complex project. Also, you may need to hire an architect to help you with the construction plans.
