My friend Clara and her husband built this awesome food storage room into their garage.
I am so jealous!
I drug my husband over to show him so he would be as excited as I am about starting ours.
I’ll let you know if it worked!
Regardless, Clara and her husband did an amazing job and even cooler it really only took them about 9 hours the first day framing.
One day of drywall.
Last day finishing.
Looking through this door, you had been looking into their garage, it was basically an outside door.
Now they have a darling little entry way.
This view, I am standing in the doorway of the new door to the garage.
They did loose about 1/2 of their garage putting the room in.
But here in TX we really don’t have many other methods of a full store room, unless you move a child out!
Have I mentioned I would kill for a basement?!
They put in a really nice pocket door to save on space.
This is looking into her store room.
LOVE the gorilla shelving!
They put down laminate flooring, you can not store any food storage directly on cement.
Clara did hire out the drywall work which is well worth the money and time. They really know what they are doing and do it right.
We almost divorced over a dry walling episode in one of our bathrooms 🙂
Clara’s awesome upright freezer and containers of wheat.
They did a really nice job and it has honestly inspired my husband to help me get ours done.
Both Clara and I are doing, and did theirs, in way that if we have to rip it out to sell the house we will be able to do it easily.
She didn’t put down tile for that reason, a bugger to pull out 🙂
As we get going on ours I will let you know of the cost involved.
**The chemicals and moisture from the cement can ruin your food. Set the food on top of boards or some kind of barrier to prevent them from touching the cement.
