When their oldest son, sam, started college, they converted the two-car garage into a guest cottage for him. they raised the floor to add the plumbing needed for the kitchen and bath. it was a $20,000 investment, including labor, materials and furnishings, to convert it into a livable space. though sam eventually chose dorm life over the cottage, it has been consistently used by visiting family members and other guests.
