You can find extra heated and cooled space with a garage conversion from CrewPros. Possibly you own a home and love everything about it besides its size it may be time to convert your garage or even attic space into an additional living space.
Why a Garage Conversion?
If a study were done to see how many people use their garage to hold their cars, it is more than likely that many people admit their 2-car garage might fit one car at best because the rest of the garage is being used as a place to store their excess “stuff.” Let’s be real, most garages are packed from floor to ceiling with sporting equipment, kid’s toys, Christmas decorations, gardening tools, and who knows what else! At CrewPros, we get it. A few of us are guilty of it too! However, you are missing valuable square footage at your home by using this as storage space. The extra space could be turned into another bedroom, an art studio, a game room, a man cave, or more.
We understand that homeowners in certain climates, especially with intense winter weather, are more likely to use their garages for their cars to protect them from the elements. Some people even have cars they would never dream of parking outside a garage. In these scenarios, if you would still like additional space for your home, CrewPros can work with you to design a room addition or investigate your attic for a conversion opportunity.
Realtor.com states converting a garage is often more affordable than adding on a room. Consider the amount of money just for the foundation alone. In Tennessee, since we mostly see mild winter weather (except for the month of February), it often makes more sense to opt for a garage conversion.
Another scenario brought up on realtor.com is if you decide to sell your home one day, “buyers do not want to see your stuff jammed into every available inch.” A garage conversion means extra visual space to spread out for the potential home buyer. This leads to a higher property value with more heated and cooled space in your real estate appraisal.
At CrewPros, we can convert your garage into whatever style of room your heart desires. And we can do it all while increasing the integrity and value of your home. We understand that to reap the rewards of your conversion. The job must be thoughtfully designed and built with quality craftsmanship.
