CrossWorks Carpentry.."Where Every Nail Has a Purpose"
Having one bathroom in a home can be a challenge. However, adding a bathroom and bedroom combo will be a benefit and without question, help in the value of the home. Once again, it has been requested of me to transform an unused single car garage into a functional room. My goal here is to create a bathroom/bedroom combo within a 12 x 20 area. I'll be removing some existing doors and windows, setting in an insulated floor, building 2-closets with a window seat in between. A loft will be in place above the bathroom and a cathedral ceiling will top it off!

Some Before and After Pictures
"What once was a garage used for storage, is now two functioning rooms. Transforming this garage has obviously added instant equity into the home without the expense of doing any earthwork".
Mike, we wanted to thank you for the work you did. You took pride in doing it right, and it shows. We've already gotten compliments on the room, along with some inquiries. We've been able to tell people that you're a delight to work with: honest, kind, thoughtful, positive, and scrupulous. The dogs miss you!
Love the photos. Many many thanks.
