Mudroom and the garage

emilybonnemaJune 3, 2013

My family of 6 lives in a 1300 sqft 3 bed one bath home that was built in 1949. The home has a small one car garage (10'x20') that we couldn't possibly fit our car into. My husband and I have been considering using the back 5' of the garage for a mud room and a 1/2 bath. Is this the worst idea? We may have to sell the house in the next 5 years and I am not sure how the 15' deep garage stall would go over with people looking at our house. Please let me know your thoughts. We live in Minneapolis and despite the cold many many people never park the car in their garage (mainly due to the older homes and smaller garages)
