What Is a Garage Conversion?

The answer to this question may seem a little obvious, but at Garage Conversion CBI, we find it’s better to explain first. A garage conversion is a type of construction where we take your unused garage and turn it into something different. Over the years, we’ve seen and helped people turn their garages into a number of different spaces. Some of the most popular have been home offices, home gyms, a rental space to help make some extra income, or even an art studio. The great thing about converting garages is that the structure is already there, so all we have to do is turn your vision into a reality.

Make Your Vision a Reality

Maybe you love your house but you’ve always wished there was one extra room to create an epic movie theater. Perhaps you love hosting people in your home, but you want to create a better place for your guests.

When you work with our team at Garage Conversion CBI, we can help turn your vision into a reality. We always take the time to sit down with our clients and talk about their goals for their garage. You may already have a solid idea of what you want to do with the space, or maybe you want to talk it out with our experts to see if your dream room is even possible. In either scenario, we will work with you to help create a design and a plan that will work for your space, time, and budget.

How to Benefit From the Space

A garage is a pretty typical part of the home, and it comes with many benefits. It gives you a place to keep your car, as well as some extra space for additional storage. However, if you aren’t using your garage to its full potential, you may not benefit from the space as much as you could.

One of our goals at Garage Conversion CBI is to help you benefit from your garage space as much as possible, even if that means converting it into something entirely different. Perhaps you need an extra bedroom, or maybe you work from home and need more office space. If you can’t benefit from any of those ideas, perhaps you have a detached garage that you could turn into a rental space where you can make some extra income. The possibilities are endless and we are always happy to help you figure out what is right for you.

Investing In a Garage Conversion In Orange County

In previous years, investing in a garage conversion wasn't as easy as simply having the space remodeled. Unfortunately, there were numerous restrictions making it difficult to get the space and the conversion you truly wanted. However, in 2021, most of the major restrictions were removed, making it much easier for homeowners to get a garage conversion in Orange County. For example, the size of garage conversions has been increased, you can now install an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) on a single-family property, reduced or waived impact fees, the allowance of garage conversions or ADUs to be used as rental units, and many more.

Finding the Right Contractor for You

While having an idea of what you want to do with your converted garage is important for the process, possibly even more important is finding the right contractor for you. As with any home improvement project, it’s vital that you work with a company you can trust. After all, you will likely have people all over your property during the construction phase.

With that in mind, you may be wondering what else you need to keep in mind as you look at different contractors in Orange County. First and foremost, it’s a good idea to work with a contractor who has experience working on garage conversions. Experienced contractors will have the most knowledge on restrictions for the county, ensuring your project stays within regulation and on track. Other important aspects you should keep an eye out for include:

  • Contractor’s license

  • Insurance

  • Good references and reviews

That being said, above all, it’s important to trust your gut and hire a contractor you feel comfortable around and puts your interests and needs first.
