Bonus Room - over garage.
My garage is 10x20 and is 3 1/2 ft below the main level of the (Cape Cod) house. Above the garage is a bonus room which has the same roofline as the house (peaked but is a high ceiling) but the floor is also 3 1/2 ft below the top floor - so there is a little staircase with 4 or 5 steps.
The question is in order to maximize the utility of this bonus room - such as installing Califonia Closets - should we raise the floor to the same level as the top floor?
Or can anyone think of a smart way to use this 3 1/2 ft? For example I thought about the idea of a sunken bath and creating a spa area.......
How expensive would it be to put in a new floor?
