covert att garage to great room

Want to convert a double attached garage to living space. 22'x25'. Then will build a dag stand alone.
Have searched the web and spoken to several people and for the most part the response is...have not heard of that/not that common. Trying to establish a starting point, would be happy to hear from anyone that can point me at sources of information.

A garage conversion is probably one of the easiest DIY expansion jobs out there - though not as popular as it was in the 70's. The hard part (spendy part) is making it look like a house from the street instead of a converted garage. You've already got walls/floors/ceiling.... You'll need to update the electrics to living space code.... probably want to improve the insulation in the walls/ceiling.... Obviously you'll need to build a wall where the existing garage door is... then finish out the inside however you want it.

Obviously a simplified explanation.... but you should get the drift...
