More than once, the TOH crew has converted "found" space in attics, basements, and garages into comfortable living areas. You need to plan carefully, and you may have to obtain approvals from the local building department to transform spaces like these. But when done right, as was the case with the basement media room at the 2002 Winchester house, such renovations can spare you the cost and hassle of a full-blown addition or a move to a bigger house.
