In the 21st century, a garage has evolved so much more than just 4 walls to park a car. Its possibilities have seemingly become endless as there is nothing we won’t try and stretch it’s use for. The classic garage has adapted to our chaotic and ever-changing lifestyles.
Leisure plays a huge part in the new-found uses for those luckily enough to have one. Conversions includes the likes of gyms, home-theatres, man caves, bars, offices, and workshops.

One common business venture to start up from your garage is a bicycle or car mechanic. Now this does require an established skillset and advanced knowledge. But one way this can be turned into such a successful and profitable business is the min cost of a store based mechanic is the overheads. But if you can simply work one car or bike at a time the jobs will be steadily rolling through. Always in need of work everyone at some point has car trouble, likewise everyone is aware of the issue of extortionate mechanic prices.

Why not turn a hobby into money-spinning business? this also applies for any time of small scale refurbishing, for things like antiques or watches.
Salon is also a venture with a whole hoax of possibilities. From hairdressing to manicures pretty much any hair & beauty idea can be done from a concrete garage. The whole experience of being pampered is supposed to be relaxing so heating is going to be required; as is a sink with running water.
