Garage attic conversion
I am looking to convert my garage attic space into livable conditioned space. My builder was very hesitant on doing that for me when we built the house, but I would like to do that in the future as the space is around 600 ft.² with a 10 foot ceiling at the peak. It appears that it was ran with 2 x 8, 16” spacing for the garage ceiling/the attic floor. It is about 26 foot deep garage x 33’ wide with a large steel I-beam ran down the center. My question is will the current build support livable space?
