"The Beauty and The Beast" - Espace Garage Plus

This is the garage makeover story of a homeowner who wanted to completely renovate his single garage to make it the den par excellence for his high caliber sports car. The car was his prized possession which he affectionately called “The Beast.”  He liked to pamper it in his spare time and wanted to park it in an appropriate environment. The request was not overly complicated, basically he wanted us to do everything possible to make this garage a “Beauty” that would complement The Beast. He wanted a suitable home for his car with all the amenities for its pampering. Piece of cake.

Once the 2D modeling and budget were approved, we tackled the most difficult task of the project which was to finish the base of the walls. The project entailed subway-style ceramic tiles around the perimeter of the garage to protect it, similar to a commercial car wash.

"A little gem of a garage!" - Espace Garage Plus

This is the makeover story of a meticulous owner and lover of things well-done. Once his house was completely renovated, he decided to tackle the custom makeover of his garage. Right off the bat, it must be said that his garage is tiny. After expanding a basement bedroom for one of his children, the garage was cut in size by half. In addition, in order to make room for the bedroom, the furnace, air exchanger and humidifier were moved into the garage, further shrinking the space.

Aware that at best he could now only park a mini vehicle, the owner asked us to maximize the storage space using literally every inch available.
