Is the ceiling 8 ft at the highest point & 7 ft at the base of tray? - If this room is amazing, even more so if it is only 8 ft ceiling! Thanks!

What was the size of the garage?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
This original area consisted of garage and storage space, I believe it is about 1200-1400 square feet (incl garage space)

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Hi, those are larger (about 18"x36") ceramic tiles, I believe the manufacturer is Porcelanosa

Master suite in old garage? - We are currently remodeling our new home, and turning old garage into master bed, but having a problem with existing concrete footer all around room. Walls weren't built out enough, therefore there's a 2"W x 4"H lip that's sticks out. How do we hide? Cover with carpet up the wall 4" and then a base mould on top? Any suggestions?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
There are several ways to deal with it, here are a couple;
1. Attach 2" thick piece of wood material (perhaps 2x4 with 1/2" ply strip) to the face of the studs, then attached your drywall to that. This will "furr out" the walls 2" and you can now run drywall all the way to the floor. Downside is that you lose 2" from the wall.
2. Another approach is to just case the concrete in wood trim (1x material) so you now have a base that is
about 4 3/4" tall and about 2 3/4" thick.
3. In a bedroom, you can build out the wall behind the bed for a shelf, so that can solve the footing on that wall
(see attached photo). If you closets on one side of the roof, those will hide the base.

Thank you for your suggestions. We are planning on building a big closet on one of the walls, and that will take care of that eyesore, at least you can't see it so much. And maybe this shelf by the window on the other side.

I'm not sure, if I can locate the color I will post it. I am sure that it is a Benjamin Moore Aura.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to More Living Space: Converting a Garage
This master suite with a new bathroom occupies what was once a large garage. The addition of a the gas fireplace certainly makes the room special. And having the bathroom adjacent to the bedroom makes for a nice master or guest suite.

I like the fireplace you picked but the fireplace needs to come off the floor and be at "bed level". I can see using an infinity fireplace kinda like this one with a thin black border. If went with black all the bathroom hardware, chandelier and even inside door could be high gloss black. We can do a lighter cream, squirrels tail brown for walls and / or walls+ceiling
