This was a fun and interesting project for Excel Builders. A local client of ours contacted us and wanted to have an existing garage made into a nice relaxing space for their family and friends to spend time at. The lower portion of the garage was finished with maple cabinets, an epoxy floor, a full bathroom, storage, and a nice flat screen television along with surround sound.
For the upper level we added a powder room, wet bar, lockers, play area and a nice office space – just in case work has to be completed while spending time with the family. The upper level cabinetry was finished with hickory cabinets.
We added new Marvin windows on the upper level so the family could enjoy the view of the yard and surrounding area. Adding the new windows required removing a double door and installing James Hardie Board siding, and then finally some fresh paint to finish off the exterior.
The lower bathroom has a tiled shower base and shower walls. Along with the floor tile, in-floor heat (Warmfloor) was installed to keep the tile warm against the cold concrete foundation. A maple vanity was installed with a granite vanity top and framed mirror.
This garage, if you can call it that, has plenty of storage, along with great open spaces for spending time with family and friends. It’s a unique project our clients should enjoy for many years to come.
