For many teenagers, living in the garage is a necessary and welcome rite-of-passage. It’s the ultimate step to independence, without having to take the daunting (and expensive) step of moving out of home. It allows teens to have their friends over, eat microwave popcorn for dinner, pop tarts for breakfast, and sneak their lover in the window without disturbing mum and dad.
This remarkable garage renovation by US renovators Shedbuilt is perfect for even the most discerning teenager, or perhaps the adult who wants to relive their youth, albeit in more refined surroundings.
Despite being only 30 square metres, this garage has everything you would need. Study nook? Check. Book storage? Check. Space for obligatory guitar? Check.
And, unlike most teenage hideouts, this one replaces microwave popcorn and pop tarts with an espresso machine and two-burner stove. Very nice.
