Boxes of junk and a hard, cement floor were cleared away to make room for white-washed cabinets and a colorful rug. No Girls Allowed This Harley-themed hangout is the ultimate man cave. Gun-metal gray furniture, a bare-bones bar and plenty of neon signs give this space just enough rustic style and comfort for even the manliest of men. Design by HGTV fan Gunslinger

Our house is L-shaped with an awkward driveway U turn to get into the garage at all. We are considering building a detached two and half car garage and enclosing the current two car attached garage to convert to a game room. My husband has his heart set on a pool table, but I am concerned that after installing the table, there will not be much room for anything else. There is also the issue of the hot water heater, which is gas and in the garage. I know it will need to be vented for safety, but that would seem to negatively impact the situation for heating and cooling. I would welcome any ideas.

We showed you the above office in this post. This office from a converted garage in Eindhoven, Holland seemed, to the homeowner to be a natural, spacey solution. Here the garage structure was actually extended and the garage door was swapped for a sliding glass one. The result is fantastic light-filled space with plenty of fresh air. A perforated metal skin was used to cover this garage with folding metal doors to serve as a privacy screen from the driveway. Additionally, the roof was lifted at an angle to accommodate a south facing skylight strip that increases the interior’s light and airy feeling.

Modern Craft Construction succeeded in creating a gorgeous living space area where once was a garage. They did their job so well that I wouldn’t have noticed this space was actually a garage. The lack of windows in that area, and the glass garage door were the only ones that made me think of this option. This is a good place to watch a movie with your family, or to throw a party. You have plenty of space!
Another approach is to leave the garage parking intact, and add new living space above it. It’s rare for a garage roof to be able to accommodate a full second story, so this project typically involves tearing off the existing roof, beefing up the garage’s structure, and then building the new space over it.
In this renovated, fully functional garage space, the concrete slab was leveled (often in garages, the floors slope slightly) and covered with hardwood. As with any garage space-turned living space, heat, air-conditioning and plumbing were added for full functionality. The overhead garage door was replaced with these over-sized, insulated accordion-like folding doors for the a clean, modern look.
