These creatively redesigned garage spaces offer room to work from home, work out or hang out. Many luxury homes have detached carriage houses or garages in their backyards. These spaces can be converted to a use other than car or junk storage.

Of course, before planning a conversion project, you should check your local zoning rules, permit restrictions and homeowners association regulations to be sure a conversion is allowed.
