Transforming a garage into a finished room is much more than putting up a few recliners, a fridge and a dartboard. Understand what factors come into play when you convert a garage into an apartment or a guest house.

That kind of projects requires a building permit from the City. You need to consider the building regulations before converting the garage into an additional living room. The building codes provide constructions standards so that the structural integrity of the garage is not affected. The zoning bylaws will consider the size and location of the garage and verify the purpose of construction.
