We want to turn our 2 car garage into a 1 car garage + room/bath for a kid who needs her own room.

The garage is slab and house has crawl space.

What do people do about access to under rooms added in garages? If we make the new room level with house floor, then there's only <1 foot between bottom of floor 2x4s and slab. We could make the room a step up room, but then ceiling would need to be vaulted or something.

It seems like we need access to under the room for plumbing and termites and such.
