Room over existing garage
I joined this forum based on what I read. There seems to be good discussion going on here.
I just bought a home with 3 car garage in Texas. The home is at a higher level than the street. So the garage is about 30 feet tall. I'm interested in putting in some storage space by building rooms over the garages. The first floor, where we park our cars would be 12 feet high. We want to put in rooms without A/C or anything fancy. We just want it for storage and for the kids to run around and play. Safety is a primary concern. Any ideas how this can be done? Also, what would be the process for me to start on this project? I'm going to hire a contractor. I have $7000 allocated for this project. Is that a reasonable price? Also, please suggest some techniques how I could build the rooms.
thank you for you advice.
