Why Should I Convert My Garage Into More Living Space?

There are many reasons and ways to do a garage conversion. The most common being:

1. Maybe you want additional living space for your home and the existing layout of the home could improve by converting your garage into living space and then building another garage.

2. Maybe you want additional living space for your home but the size of your lot or restrictions do not allow you to build any more square footage and you’d rather use the space of your garage for a living space and give up on the garage altogether.

3. Maybe you want additional living space for your home but don’t have the budget for an ADU. Converting a garage into a living space most of the time is a simpler process that would be faster and cheaper than building a new structure due to the walls and roof that already exist.

Whatever the reason may be, we can customize it for your needs. We can create an outdoor access for example if you want to rent it as a separate unit or use it as a guest house. We can also add new windows and anything else to make sure it’s suitable for what you need.

A garage conversion done right is a guaranteed way to increase the value of your home. The process takes a lot of planning and work, but our team at LFM Remodeling is here to walk you through every step of the process.

In a scenario where you just want (or need due to restrictions) to convert your garage into a living space and give up on your current garage, we’ll be able to provide an all-in proposal for the project after visiting your property.

How Much Should a Garage Conversion Cost?

It depends on the size, type of finishing, and what needs to be done. For example if you want to add a bahtroom and kitchen it will cost more than just converting the garage into an empty room. Also, many times the water heater/HVAC sits in the garage and we might need to relocate them and that will add to the cost of the project.

Typically, for a simple garage conversion without the bathroom and kitchen, the cost will be around $25k and the finished material such as light fixtures, flooring, etc. should be about $2,500 extra.

For a more complex project such as a garage conversion with an added bathroom and kitchen, it would start at $70k plus. *These price ideas do not include the cost of a new garage that will be built after the garage conversion of your original garage. Depending on the type of project and zoning of your house, permits might be required, and these price ideas do not include architectural plans and city fees that can upwards of $1k-$20k depending on the scope of your project.
