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.
"It's small, but we’ve all found a different use for it when guests aren’t visiting," says Maltzman, a fifth-grade teacher. He uses it as a quiet getaway where he can grade papers.
