We purchased a home in West Boise in 2021 that needed a full renovation.
One of the key decisions that added to this home, was to finish off a previously converted portion of the garage by raising the subfloor to match the height of the rest of the house. Adding a large closet and a door to the hallway converted this bonus area into a potential bedroom. Making a large space even more useful for future tenants.
The first step to this project was to close off the awkward openings in the wall connected to the garage. This gave a completed look to the room and extended the open space for parking in the garage.
Then we built up the floor to match the same level as the rest of the house, creating a seamless floorplan from room to room.
Then we added a door to this space so that it could be closed off as a bedroom or private extra living space when needed.
Finally, a large closet was framed out and drywalled to give more storage to the home and give this room the flexibility to become an additional bedroom if needed.
Once the flooring, trim and paint were finished this room flowed well with the rest of the floorplan and became almost impossible to a difference between the original floorplan.
