Location: Elkins Park, PA
Project: Garage Conversion
In this project we took an existing attached garage in a suburban neighborhood and turned it into a kitchen with access to, and views of, a lush back yard.
Changes made to the building exterior included bricking in the bottom portion of  windows to counter-top height,  adding a new door and stairs to the rear yard, and infilling the old garage door opening with an insulated wall and windows.
The line of the original roof rafters was maintained to create a sense of expansion when entering the kitchen space.
Both walls and ceiling were extensively insulated and air sealed to create a quite comfortable space the year round.
