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.
In todays homes where the maximizing of space is of the utmost importance the garage is no longer a place relegated for forgotten storage. The modern garage has a number of roles - everything from workshop to car maintenance. But temperature control - expected and taken for granted in our homes - has rarely kept pace in this additional space. And the result is often an uncomfortable place that is vulnerable to all weather conditions; certainly not conducive to an effective work environment. Luckily with an efficient and safe garage heater you can utilize this space year round and comfortably complete any projects at hand.
Technology has simplified work and as such people no longer employ watchmen or gatemen to run ahead and open their door so that they can drive into the garage with ease. If you happen to be the night hawk that comes home at 2 am who would be waiting to open doors for you anyway. Getting modern doors installed can save you all the trouble since most of them come with remote controlled opening and closing systems. With the availability of technological solutions all you need to do is provide the list of expectations that you want included in it and let the modern garage doors company handle the rest.
A carriage style door with its graceful curves looks terrific on a home with curved windows. A Spanish villa style house will look fabulous with a new rustic looking garage door! A modern contemporary styled home begs for a sleek look incorporating more glass or wide horizontal panels as opposed to boxier square panels. Garage doors come in a plethora of styles; Colonial Tudor Mediterranean Country Spanish and many others.
