Under-house storage and garage conversion #2

Job description

Posted 22 hours ago

We would like to have a storage area created under our two-storey house, which has an internal garage. Currently the under house space is accessed via a sliding hatch in our garage. The hatch is approximately 1 metre (tall) by 2.5 metres (wide) and is located within a wall of concrete blocks. We would need a space under the house, adjacent to the garage, to be excavated. It's currently filled with dirt and planks of wood that have been laid over the dirt, by previous house owners. The length of the space to be excavated is 9.5 metres long and the distance from the internal garage wall to the pilings is 1.8 metres. The distance from the bottom of the hatch to ground level (i.e. the top of the clay to the bottom of the concrete blocks) is 1.1 metres.

We would need a retaining wall to be erected the required distance from the house pilings/foundations.

We would also need a door to be created at the site of the sliding hatch to allow entry to the storage area AND we would need a false floor installed.

The photos here are of the site as it is now and there are also photos of a storage area at our friend's house, which basically mirror what we would like.

We would eventually like to renovate our garage (5.1 x 3.5 metres long and wide and 1.9 metres high) to use as a rumpus room, but first we need to create somewhere to store and access the contents of the garage.
