Hi everyone, I’ve been seeing that you guys are really great at brainstorming ideas, and I’ve just realised that I’m in need of some outside the box thinking. We are in a 1970s style and layout house, split story with a very big garage underneath the kitchen and living area floor. I have been wanting to increase living area and create a rumpus style room for my 2 young children. My very simple plan was to create a doorway in the hall to lead to newly created downstairs and split the garage in two, and convert half of the space into a living area. This would also enable an internal door to the laundry which is currently only accessed from outside. I guess I am just after any other ideas as to how we could use this space and if I’m missing anything. Open to all ideas. Floor plan attached. bulk head is what I called the stair void, which I thought would just be boxed in, not very sightly as it would be in the living room, but I thought I could reposition everything to face away from it. Or if there’s more attraction options that would be great.
