Sacramento Garage Conversion - Turnkey Design & Build

Do you have a garage that is out of use? What if we tell you that it can be turned into a new living space that will both be functional and save room in your primary housing unit? Garage conversion has become a pretty popular way of turning unused vehicle space into completely livable space. A converted garage that is done in a proper way can help you to increase the value of your property as well.

If you feel like your already existing house needs more living space but do not want to make any major renovations inside consider hiring professional ADU builders in Sacramento for garage conversion is one of the most convenient options. The new habitable space can be turned into anything, from a guest house for visiting friends and family members to your personal home cinema or gym.

Converting a garage can be a challenging project, especially if you do something like this for the first time. To create a perfect space within a short period of time and of great quality, contact a reliable ADU building company. Our professionals are ready to help you with your garage conversion project of any type so that you can have the space of your dreams on the property.

Garage Conversion Requirements

Although it might seem like garage conversions are easy to plan out, there are some specific requirements that have to be followed. Even though there are not as many of them, compared to the number of rules for renovating some parts of your main house, still, local regulations should be considered thoroughly.

First of all, homeowners who are planning a garage transformation should contact the local zoning department to make sure that turning the garage into a living space in your area does not require any additions, like a whole new parking space. Planning permission should be obtained from the department, and only then the garage conversion can start.

Second of all, consider making the garage floors higher. Usually, the garage floor level is much lower than the one in the main housing, and it is common to have a simple concrete slab as a floor. To make the living space more comfortable, raising the garage floors is recommended. This way, your new space will match the existing structure perfectly. Also, while renovating the garage floor, think about adding underfloor heating before installing the new floor covering.

What is more, fiberglass insulation and foam insulation should be added to the walls, floors, and ceiling of your old garage, especially if you are planning to use it during colder times. These measures will keep each new room warm and comfortable for living. Don't forget about the air conditioning that is necessary for any living space.

Here are some other important details to consider before starting to design your garage conversion:

  • Install proper electrical wiring and plumbing systems;
  • Hide unsightly areas that were used in the former garage as a storage space;
  • Install a bigger garage door and provide good insulation for it;
  • Use extra space to create built-in storage to make the interior neater.

Dreaming of a converted garage is much easier than making it all come true. In order to not get disappointed with converting your existing garage, hire an experienced team. We will help you to convert a garage according to all the local requirements and your needs for the converted space.


Garage Conversion Types

When it comes to garage conversion, there are plenty of different options to try out. It can truly be anything, from a mini-house with its own bedrooms, shower room, dining space, and laundry room to an art studio with all the supplies you need for your creative expression.

If you still have not decided on what to turn your garage into, here are some ideas for that. Depending on how many square feet your space has and what you feel your property lacks, one or the other garage conversion type can be chosen.

1. Guest House

One of the most common garage conversion projects is a guest house. When people are coming over, it is better to give them their own space to relax after a fun gathering together. Turn a single-car garage into a bedroom with all the needed utilities and let your friends and relatives have a comfortable stay. To save more space, you can add a Murphy bed and get it out only when needed.

If you are a lucky owner of a large garage, it probably has enough room to be turned into a proper mini-house with all the zones. With enough space for a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and living room, the converted place can even be rented out and used as an additional income source.

2. Home Gym

Yes, converting your garage can even be beneficial for your health! Both big and small garage spaces can be turned into a home gym. Moreover, if the interior walls are strong enough, you can mount some equipment for your kids to play and enjoy. Different swings and ladders can also be attached to the vaulted ceiling.

With big garage doors that were used to get the vehicles inside, your gym will have plenty of natural light, as well as a great source of ventilation. This way, you can exercise in fresh air while keeping your equipment protected from any rain, snow, or sun damage. And no additional outdoor equipment is needed!

3. Home Cinema

A two-car garage or even a smaller one can be used for creating your own cinema. Just imagine all the fun and cozy gatherings you can have with your dearest friends and family. Leave a blank wall to project the movies and set up your floor space with some comfortable couches or chairs.

Double garage conversion also allows you to place some other entertainment, like a pool table or table tennis, for your loved ones to enjoy. With a good quality sound system and big screen, you will forget about looking for tickets each time you want to see a hot new movie.

4. Personal Office or Art Studio

Working from home has become a new reality for many people ever since the pandemic hit. Having your own little corner where you can concentrate on your work stuff is quite important, as it can directly affect your productivity. With a garage conversion, you can create a personalized home office that has everything you need in the working process.

Whether your job requires a comfortable desk and chair to work behind the computer or plenty of storage for the crafts, the converted space can really help. You don't have to waste any living space in the main housing for such purposes, and you also won't be distracted by the comfortable environment of your home.

There are a lot of other ideas for a garage conversion that you can implement on your property. No matter what you wish to have the A+ Construction & Remodeling company will make sure that everything is done in the best way possible.

We hired A+ Construction & Remodeling to convert our garage to an ADU. Both our project manager and the construction team were pleasant to work with.
