With home purchase getting more costly day by day, lofts are considered as more reasonable options – especially for a small family. You can create a completely independent unit out of a garage area – provided you have about 70 square feet of floor space. Also the ceiling must be as high or exceed seven and a half feet. Even if half of the total garage area is this high, you can build a loft home easily with garage conversion.
