The owners of this Miami home wanted their existing garage converted into more living space. When completed, the converted garage added over 300 sq ft of living space to their home. The additional square footage included a bedroom, bathroom and an air conditioned laundry room, which was previously in the muggy garage. The additional area from this converted garage could have easily been used as a play room or general entertaining space.

Below are photos of another garage conversion idea brought to reality by Rausa Builders Corp. This 2 car garage was mostly used for storage and laundry before it was converted to an additional bedroom with it’s own bathroom and side entry to the house. The additional entry creates a mud room for rainy days and is a convenient entrance for the family after sporting practices because the laundry room’s right there!

It’s possible to add 400 sq ft of living space to your home for less than $50k, contact us today!

South Miami Remodel & Addition

Here are before and after photos of an abandoned residence in the City of South Miami. The original owners had begun construction and had to put the site to a halt for unknown reasons. The home getting numerous violations and having an unsafe structures violation had accrued fines of over $300,000. After the new owner took over, with the efforts of Rausa Builders, we were able to mitigate the fines to $30,000 and begin construction once again.

The existing garage structure which was originally separated from the house was joined with an addition in between two main residences. This new addition to the home became the large kitchen to the house with a breakfast area. The garage was converted into half garage and half Master Room addition and bath suite. All the interior walls were from 4″ concrete block which made running new electrical and plumbing much more difficult.

This house was completed with a modern design in the interior and exterior. The roof is from Eagle supply which is a concrete roof tile installed with polyfoam. An addition was completed on the front section to make a grand entrance.
