Transformation of an Outbuilding into a Living Space
The scope of this project was to convert a garden storage shed
into a rec room/guest house with lofted storage. The homeowner
elected to use environmentally friendly cotton insulation purchased
from the EHC, as well as the use of other friendly materials including
bamboo flooring, re-used interior window trim and special paint.
Making your remodel eco friendly depends on the design, technique,
materials, you and your Contractor.
