Hi all. I live in Florida and have recently purchased a three bedroom house. However I need four bedrooms. Doh! (My poor mom had a stroke and will live with me)My plan is to convert one of my two two car garages, which are under roof of dwelling, to a bedroom for my son AND a, drumroll, home theater/family room. Would love to here from good people who have done this and could offer me design and execution advice. For instance, especially for you Florida people-- pull a permit? And if so, does this mean architects and engineers? I have tremendous budget constraints and would like to do this over a period of a year or more-- but I do have to build kids bedroom posthaste. If I don't pull a permit what happens when I sell? Fines? Tear-outs?I am a handy guy and will do most, if not all by myself. Have access to hvac guy and an electrician. If you live in tampabay area and have practical experience in this- I wanna be your friend!
