Cozy Outdoor Living Space for a Custom Colonial: After

Who: Jason H.
Where: Pearl River, NY

Our blind leap turned into a custom Colonial. We gutted the garage and demolished the roof and rear wall. We added two second-floor bedrooms and a full bath. We created a rear first-floor hallway leading to the new master bedroom suite. By changing the footprint from an L to a U shape, we created a cozy outdoor living space. This area is secluded and accessible from both the living room and master bedroom through two sets of French doors. Still have many ideas we hope to implement for the exterior, but we have yet to see the interior plan come to life! We truly appreciate the blood, sweat, and tears it took to make it our home, which you just can't buy with a turnkey property.

Who did the work: We did some of the work ourselves but a contractor did most of it.
Cost: More than $100,000
