Cozy Guest Suite Renovation in Lovely Great Falls, Virginia Home

Homeowner Challenge:

The challenges for this project were twofold: maximizing the available space and maintaining climate control. The homeowners wanted to finish the space over their existing garage to include a guest suite with ample living space, a full bath and a kitchenette. They wanted the space to look and feel as if it were built with the original house, using similar finishes and materials throughout.

The BOWA Solution:

The design build team at BOWA paid careful attention to the insulation methodologies used over the garage to ensure year-round comfort of the new guest apartment.  Additionally, the thoughtfully designed space ensured that every square inch of available space was captured.  The result was a comfortable, beautifully-appointed guest apartment which blended seamlessly with the main house.

Project Highlights:

  • Red oak flooring and cherry cabinetry carried over from main house finishes
  • Stand-alone HVAC system installed for climate control
