Adding Natural Light
We install a door with a window to let in some much-needed natural light — and so Tara and Matt can keep an eye on their girls.
The freshly painted white walls maximize every bit of the natural light.
Coating the Floor
The material we’ll use to coat the garage floor is not paint. It’s Daich Coatings’ RollerRock, a concrete coating made from stone.
The first coat of RollerRock dries in a couple of hours, so Matt’s homework is applying a second coat overnight.
The finished stone floor coating makes the room look like a finished living space, but it’s rugged enough to handle car traffic.
Spraying the Spiders
Finally, we spray the space with Miss Muffet’s Revenge. It’s a versatile product because you can spray the spider, spray the cobweb, or spray your home’s perimeter and keep spiders away for up to a year.
Like most garages, Matt and Tara’s had become a random collection of stuff without a home or things they just didn’t need.
Now the space is cleaner, brighter and much more functional.
