Denver Carriage House Remodels

Many older Denver homes have additional untapped square footage right in their own backyard.  These accessory buildings, or carriage houses – once used to store carriages below and hay in the loft above are now being converted into additional dwelling units for the homeowners or potential tenants.

In the carriage house remodel we completed, we were able to take an unused, unfinished hay loft and convert it into usable living space for the homeowners.  Now the carriage house is a rental unit, while the garage below provides storage for  vehicles.

Although the carriage house is only 480 square feet, it packs all the amenities of a modern home.A combo washer/dryer is tucked away in the kitchen island, which seats four.  The living room is open to the kitchen and allows space for a sectional sofa.  The bathroom features a large shower with a bench.  Skylights provide additional natural light, making the entire space feel larger and more open.  And storage closets are tucked away in pockets of otherwise unusable space at the eaves.  Architectural details, like the original beams – were maintained and highlighted with the vaulted ceiling and natural lighting.
