About This Space

We originally made over our garage for our teenage son and his friends but it's become our favorite room in the house!!
We built out just to the garage opening on both sides so we could gain some storage cabinets. The bead board is so seamless that you forget there are storage cabinets in the room. We also put in a pull down ladder and made use of the overhead storage space which is quite large and holds a ton of stuff.
We acid stained the floor and added low voltage track lighting.
