Is your garage damp, leaky and full of junk items that you have not bothered to throw away? Why waste all that garage space? If your garage was watertight you could convert it into a useful space for you and your family.
For some people a garage is just somewhere to store your car, garden equipment and stuff that doesn’t fit in your house. This is a real shame because with a bit of love and attention a garage can be so much more. If your garage is in good condition with a secure, watertight garage roof then it can easily be made to work a bit harder for you this summer.
Get ready for the beach
Creating a gym in your garage is the perfect way to save money on expensive gym memberships as well as the time spent travelling there and back. It doesn’t have to cost the earth, a few basic pieces of equipment - exercise bike, free weights, treadmill or rowing machine - and you are good to go. You can always add to your equipment later, as you learn what type of exercise works best for you. This is what one of our clients did to their garage (see photo below).
Keep the drinks cool
Hopefully we will have some good weather this summer and plenty of opportunities to invite friends and family over for a barbeque or two. However, running out of space in the fridge for cold drinks is a common problem. Why not buy a spare fridge and keep it in the garage. You will be able to use it all year round, particularly during Christmas and New Year where there is never enough space for the mountain of food and drink that we need over the festive period.
