I want to convert the garage into a guesthouse.
Removing and replacing the roof with a steep pitch to create a second floor room.
Insulating, adding a (first floor) bathroom, and replacing the two large garage doors with windows.
Installing a spiral staircase.
Installing a heat and cooling source.
To keep the cost down, I will go simple and do as much of the work as possible myself.
Appreciate design ideas, technical suggestions, and what to avoid.

Check building codes to see if the studded structure can be made into a second floor. You may need an engineerer to determine that. What power source is out there? You may need a new line to support a kitchen and HVAC, most garages only have limited power.1997 MasterCraft 205
