A garage conversion is so beneficial if you rarely use it as it can add an extra room, game room, studio, or rent out if you need extra money rather attached to the home or across the yard like my mom has. She no longer uses the garage as it was my dad’s man cave and he recently passed away in 2019 and it is full of tools, gas cans, storage up top for stuff and who knows what else but it could really be redone and made to be an accessory dwelling unit.
There are many things you will need to do such as a plumbing, heating/cooling, might have to update the electrical supply box but after that, you are ready to build rather you use the existing or tear it down and start new. I know for my dad’s garage it would have to tear down as the floor is unsteady and the squirrels have claimed it as theirs so they more than likely have chewed places and made holes.
This is in Maine so a log cabin would be a great idea with an expansive 500-square-foot front deck and a porch of more than 300 square feet, this kiln-dried log home is reminiscent of pioneer days with one exception: It has all the conveniences of a thoroughly modern home. Set on a beautifully manicured woodsy plot, the cabin is at one with nature. A wall of double-paned, Low-E and argon-filled windows allow plenty of light in while protecting against drastic temperature fluctuations. Built from a kit, energy efficiency was a key factor for this design. Inside you'll find three bedrooms and 2-1/2 baths. The main living area is the 1,300-square-foot downstairs. The 400-square-foot second floor is where the master bedroom and a bath are located.
Cottage as it is near a popular lake and this one has 2,000 square feet +/- (1600 on the first floor, 400 on the second level). Rigid and thick foam insulation covered by a metal roof. Maine “camp” theme with reversing oars as decorative balustrades and moose carved into outside shutters.
The Espresso house plan gives you the best of both worlds. The well-detailed exterior gives you the charm of a mountain lodge but a floor plan for an urban setting. A foyer leads to a generous great room with a raised ceiling. A large window means that this house plan is great for picturesque views. The kitchen has a large island and a walk-in pantry. The master suite is steeped in luxury itself with a large walk-in closet and double vanities. Two additional bedrooms round out this 1, 529 square foot house plan.
This popular design has plenty of charm. The Vida de la Confianza house plan features dormers, shutters, and Craftsman details to give it plenty of curb appeal. Inside you will find lots of features in this home’s 1,698 square feet floor plan. This plan is designed to entertain guests both indoors and outdoors and a private master suite is a perfect retreat at the end of a long day. If your family is still growing then you can rest easy knowing that upstairs provides plenty of space for future expansion. Accessory dwelling unit has so many ideas and options for you to choose from so be creative!
