Home Gym

The garage may be converted into a gym so that you'll never have to worry about missing your workout. Most people miss their scheduled training for the day because of time constraints. Sometimes the weather or the traffic is to blame. These will no longer be valid excuses if you have a gym in your own home. You can pop in and lift whenever you have free time. Instead of having to dress up and drive over, you will only need to walk a few steps to start your session. Design in any way that you want to. Leave a wide open area if you are into aerobics or yoga. Fill it with machines and other equipment if you're into body building. Add a treadmill and a spin bike for aerobic training.

Home Office

You could also do the conversion to create a home office. This is definitely a better setup than working from your bedroom as you can have a bit of separation between your personal and professional life. It's also important if you are thinking of accepting guests and clients into your office. What's more, you will have ample space to store products if you have an online shop. The garage is perfect as it is highly accessible and have its own entrance. It is already hooked up with electricity and air conditioning. You would only have to take out the clutter, repaint the walls, and do a bit of decoration.

Additional Bedroom

Lastly, you can turn the garage into an additional bedroom which can then be used by guests or the children. It should be a quick fix if there is a shortage of living space in the house. Conversion can take a week and you won't need to get permits. Extensions, on the other hand require more planning and count take a month to complete.
