Garage conversion on a budget

Ok, you got your garage conversion idea down. Now you need to have a realistic garage conversion budget, and you should try to stick with it as much as possible. A garage conversion on a budget sometimes requires flexibility on ideas and constant adjustments. You may need to give up a few things in order to get closer to your budget tag. Often enough, homeowners will not complete a few items of the project list in order to meet the garage conversion budget as long as they get to use the space until the completion of the project. I don’t recommend this because many times it voids the warrantee, but it is another way to stay within the budget. At the same time consider that some towns don’t allow it.
