Escondido Garage Conversion

Are you looking to add more space to your home in Escondido? A garage conversion might be the solution you need!

At Better Place Remodeling, we offer a comprehensive garage conversion service in Escondido that includes a complimentary in-home consultation. Our team of professionals will guide you through the entire process, from planning and budgeting to design and construction, to help you achieve your remodeling goals.

What is a Garage Conversion?

A garage conversion refers to the process of converting an existing garage into a habitable space. Some popular uses for a garage conversion in Escondido include:

  • A home office
  • A guest room
  • A playroom for kids
  • A home gym
  • A rental unit
  • An additional bedroom
  • A family room
Garage Conversion

Benefits of a Garage Conversion in Escondido

By converting your garage, you can create more space without adding space to your property, which can be especially helpful for:

1 Additional Square Footage

Which can increase your property value and provide more room for your family to live and grow.

2 No Need for a Home Addition

Building an addition can be costly and time-consuming, while a garage conversion is a simpler solution to provide the extra space you need.

3 Increased Functionality

By converting your garage into a usable space, you can create rooms/spaces for different needs of family.

4 Potential Rental Income

A separate garage conversion (detached) with its own entrance can be rented out to earn extra income.

Our Process for Garage Conversion in Escondido

At Better Place Remodeling, we begin the process with a complimentary in-home consultation to evaluate your garage, discuss your remodeling goals, and provide you with an estimate of the cost and timeline for your project.

We also check with your local building department in Escondido to ensure the project complies with all the necessary requirements, as we investigate any potential restrictions or permits that may be required.

Once we have confirmed that your garage is suitable for conversion, we do a thorough assessment of your garage’s structural and architectural integrity by evaluating the foundation, identifying the utility systems required, and determining other necessary structural changes.

After the planning and design phase, we obtain the required permits, start on the construction, schedule inspections throughout the process, and making sure we deliver the space you envisioned.

    As remodeling contractors and ADU builders in Escondido, Better Place specializes in ADU construction, garage conversions, and room extensions/additions.

This type of ADU can be located in a backyard, side yard, or on a separate lot from the main house, with their utilities, including electrical, plumbing, and water connections, and may require separate metering systems.
    • Room Additions – create by extending the floor plan to add more living space to your home, including the ground floor, second floor, or basement. We design them for various purposes, such as adding a bedroom, bathroom, home office, or recreational space.

    Steven N.


    My wife and I hired Better Place Remodeling on May 7, 2020, and our project was completed on August 31, 2020. Evi was the first person with whom we made in-person contact, and let me tell you, he exuded nothing but professionalism, courtesy, and respect to both my wife and me! Having hired F.A.T. Construction prior under the general foreman Tony Chavez and having a VERY POOR experience with that contractor, my wife and I were very skeptical, to say the least. Evi quickly earned our trust and our business through his constant contact and updates. He always kept my wife in the loop with all major decisions during the project. Had I not continuously kept adding more to the project, Evi and his crew would have finished a lot sooner than expected. Evi even went so far as to bring us his favorite type of coffee direct from Israel as we had a good working relationship. The one time I got frustrated at the job was nothing to do with Better Place Remodeling, but rather the City of Escondido with their slow permit approval process due to COVID-19. Even though this wasn't Evi's fault, he even brought me Starbucks coffee one night and further explained the backlog of permits. I also would like to send a shout-out to Barr and to Evi's top Landscaper Herman. Barr stepped in and helped Evi with our project when Evi's plate was full. Barr also exuded the same professionalism, courtesy, and respect to both my wife and me! Herman? What can I say? The guy has landscaping skills! Let him make suggestions to you and be open-minded about them-you will not be disappointed! Thanks, Evi, Barr, and Herman for such tremendous work on our home!
