Building a garage with apartment to live in while building
I'm considering building a garage with an apartment for our family of 5 to live in while preparing to build our home on our land.
I'm thinking if I get insulated garage doors and a window unit then we can even use the bottom garage floor space as living area temporarily. This should provide over 1000sf of living space; which I think would be bearable for a while.
I'm thinking this would help since I'm considering owner building my main house and want to be on site as much as possible during the construction. After moving into the new house we could use the apartment as a rental, guest house, media room or whatever we needed it for.
Has anyone here attempted this or have any words of advice? Pros or Cons? Is this a good/bad idea? Any input would be much appreciated!
