Garage makeover: loft in the new guest room
Thomas J. Story 

Rethink the garage

Reed Maltzman and Jennifer Gosselin had a two-car garage off of their house in San Francisco, but they needed space for people, not cars. So the couple transformed half of the detached structure into this 400-square-foot guest room and office.
