We recently completed a garage renovation in Queensbury, NY where we transformed the garage into a beautiful one-bedroom apartment complete with a laundry room, bathroom, closet and living area. Check out some of the behind the scenes photos (they may make you reconsider what you can do with your own garage!)

Steps to Remodel Your Garage
The first step is to decide what the purpose will be of your new space. Are you dreaming of a large man cave for you and your buddies? Perhaps you’re looking to build an in-law suite or an added space for your teenager. Or maybe, you’re looking to expand your garage so that you have more room for tools or storage. Whatever it is, first decide on the main goal of the renovation.
Next, browse the internet for garage remodeling ideas! Pinterest is a great place to get started. Keep a collection of garage remodels that inspire you, and make sure to show this to your contractor once you design to begin.
After that, consider the costs and determine how much budget you will have to allocate to your upcoming garage renovation.
So, How Much Does It Cost to Renovate a Garage?
From plumbing to adding basic insulation to adding a laundry room or a full-blown apartment, garage remodels can vary widely in their complexity and so can their costs. Consider how much money you have to budget. According to Home Advisor, an average garage conversion can cost between $5,623 and $16,169.
Keep in mind, if you’re planning to maximize the space, renovating your garage may end up being a worthwhile investment in your home’s resale value. According to Home Advisor, a well-done garage conversion can give you up to an 80% ROI, so it’s well worth the investment in the long run.
