Now look at the history of these useful doors. The history of garage doors is story as well. The first garage doors were barn doors. They opened in a very rustic manner. The more stately homes had carriage houses. These were like barns. They were completely separate from the home. They offered a place for horses and their carriages to reside. The separate carriage house was for the rich of the time. Their use was practical with a touch of high style. They were all practicality and not a fashion thing
Planning and Preparation Just like any other successful ventures careful planning and preparation for whats ahead is essential in renovating your garage to a livable space. Have a clear-cut idea of what transformation you wish done in this area. Would you like to turn it into a living room extension lounge and childrens play room study room or office space among others? The kind of construction needed is basically dependent on what type of room you want your garage converted. Thus a more complex remodeling is needed if you prefer to turn it into another comfort room or bathroom since you need to install drainage system and pipes in the room. You may also need to construct additional walls and put more furniture to transform it completely.
The Structure of the framed garage should start with waterproof bottom plates secured by anchor bolts in the concrete slab. The walls should be built with 2 by 4 studs 16 inches apart to guarantee a structurally strong wall and 8 feet high. Rafters should be 2 by 6 studs 16 inches apart to support snow and other elements. Make sure the rafters are securely embedded into the top plates of the walls with the bird mouth cut method. Once the sheathing is installed on the walls and roof vinyl siding is the most recommended siding as it is the most maintenance free and economical in the market.
