Cars Need Homes Too; Make That Garage the Most Loved Room in the House

A garage can be much more than a house for cars. Homes today feature garages as integral facets to everyday living because they offer storage, shelter and workspace. In some properties, a garage can be the perfect area to add-on: a garage apartment, a mother-in-law suite or even just more living space. No matter the size, a garage certainly adds value, especially in areas where street parking is a problem. Older homes may have detached garages (if houses were built before cars were commonplace), while more modern homes have attached garages. Either way, these useful rooms come in handy.
