I love it! That's SO close to what I'd ideally like to do with my garage. May never be in the cards (financially) but I can dream! In my case the garage would have to get deeper instead of wider and the upstairs would either be a studio/workshop for my gf like featured here or simply an awesome loft to drink beers in and watch cars get worked on below.

Looks also like your house is relatively small, ours is ~930sf. It's a bit tiny but with the exception of another bathroom and a larger closet it's really quite nice having a small house. All we want is more space for our projects.

Living below their means and doing the work themselves, that's the way to do it!

Great job.

I have found that the secret to life is having a wife who is willing and able to help in construction projects and shares in the pride of a job well done. My wife and I have done a number of rehab projects together. We renovated a 1905 blacksmith shop five years ago.

Now we're working on a 1928 corner store building that we own. It currently houses the woodshop, welding shop, and some equipment for our business.

It's great to have a construction partner who shares the same goals. Kudos to Jeremy and Allison.
