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.
Check the Safety Features: Every once in a while ensure that the safety features of the door are working properly. Modern garage doors are built with cutting edge technology for safety such as alarms and closing/opening features that cannot be breached. If the safety features are not functioning properly the door itself will not work. Check the settings of the door using the manufacturers manual. Routinely Check the Opener: You may be using a remote voice recognition or vision recognition technologies for opening the door. Sometimes when the door refuses to open the problem may lie with the opener. Conduct routine checks to ensure that the opener is working properly especially after returning from a holiday or when you have not used the garage for a long time. If there is a problem then you need to contact a garage door repair service.
Larger garage spaces or a garage that is used frequently as a work space may warrant a larger more comprehensive garage heater. These units are powered by natural or propane gas and come in the form of standing units or overhead systems that distribute warm air to the entire space. While a gas garage heater is more efficient for larger areas they must be properly vented. Because this garage heater uses gas there are fumes that must be vented to the outside. Further it is wise to have a gas garage heater professionally installed to ensure optimum safety.
If you are thinking about building a detached framed garage with garage plans it is helpful to know the best construction features to use. For best results and to build the best garage plan it is important to use a 6 bag mix of concrete when you pour your garage slab. The 6 stands for 6 bags of concrete per yard mixed. Anything less than a 6 bag mix is not strong enough. Compacting the 4 inches of crushed stone is also important. Compacting the crushed stone assures that the concrete will be sealed air tight and will eliminate any cracking in the concrete slab. Before the concrete is poured be sure to use wire mesh reinforcement this mesh should lay over the crushed stone.
Finding a garage heater that works for your needs depends largely on the size of your work area and frequency of use. If you have a smaller garage space or you use the garage as a work space only infrequently then a small electric space heater may be enough to suit your needs. The smaller electric units used as a garage heater are compact efficient and use a minimum of electricity to achieve a maximum of comfort.
