Converting 1 Car GarageI've read a lot about this and am hoping that someone can assist. I have a 3br/2ba one level (no basement) in a desirable neighborhood. It's a 1950's house with a 1 car garage. To me it is useless because a big car cannot even fit in it. I was thinking of converting it to liveable space (could designate as a 4th bedroom). The house is a U shaped house, with the garage on one side, and a bedroom on the other side of the U. Once converted it would look almost identical to the bedroom side (I would remove the garage door, build up the wall, install windows and reside that portion) and would look seamless. I will not lose offstreet parking as the driveway will be intact (although I may bring it away from the house about 4 feet), and off street parking is a non-issue. My question is will additing the almost 300 sq feet of living space add value even though I am removing a 1 car garage? The garage is not much use really other than storage? I had planned on adding a shed to the back yard that I will be able to store the items once kept in the garage, and since I live on a corner lot, I was thinking of adding a 2 car garage eventually. Any thoughts? This will NOT look like a bad garage conversion.January 13 2014 - Avondale Estates00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
