The garage is often the last place in the home that gets a makeover—even though it’s often desperately in need of an overhaul. But homeowners are catching on. Now, Rick Peters presents six themed ways to transform the garage into a comfortable, effective, and efficient space: enclosing a carport; making a mechanic’s dream work area; adding a woodworking shop; creating a craft room; putting in storage (and more storage); and building a family room. All the work takes place on site, in real families’ two-car garages, with the tasks divided into two groups: those that the average homeowner can accomplish him or herself, and those best left to professionals. The guide’s friendly and easy-to-follow format shows what needs to be done and how to do it; the more demanding jobs receive extremely detailed descriptions that explain what the work entails, how long it should take, and what it typically costs.
