Old garage transformation
We moved to this this older house three years ago. With it came this old garage. Somehow I saw some potential in it. My first project was to built my wife a new kitchen. Immediatly after the kitchen was finished, it was time to give the old garage a make-over. I had three main criterias. The first was to have sufficient ceiling heigh, second I wanted good natural light and finally all will agree that a good workbench is a must. Sounded easy, 1,2,3… voila!, to work I went.
Now that the old garage is sitting two feet higher, it was time to made a few opening to increase the amount of natural light inside the building.
The painting near completion. We see the two new windows at the back and the new carriage doors I built for the side opening. Similar doors were also built to replace the old garage door at the front of the building. Now I have plenty of natural light entering my workspace.
And finally, step three was to built the much needed workbench. Soon after completion, I had to resume working for my lovely wife. I'm now working on a new kitchen table in I beautiful workshop that used to be an old garage.
