Converting an otherwise unused room into a 1st floor bedroom can be a great way to help someone Age In Place. We’re currently mid-project on converting a 2-car attached garage into a barrier-free Master Suite and laundry room, but it doesn’t have to be that complex to achieve 1st floor living. Sometimes, all you need to do is bring a bed, nightstand, and armoire into a living room or dining room. We can frame in walls and doors to complete the space and create the privacy a bedroom should provide. There are, however, several building codes we need to consider. This article from the Bob Villa Blog helps us navigate those codes and regulations.
