With help of the My House Design/Build team, an outdated and under-used attached garage was transformed into an English-style bar, complete with powder room, small office, and proper serving peninsula.

Photos in this gallery show the improvements done to the yard and patio area of this home near Deer Lake, Burnaby. Photos also show the “Ale House” transformation of the garage. It was this garage renovation earned a spot as finalist in the 2017 BC Georgie Awards for best residential renovation under $100,000.

More Space for Friends

The segmented space now allows for flexible groupings. There’s comfortable seating for four at the bar, cozy, intimate seating in front of dual-sided fireplace and a large open space that accommodates entertaining 20-30 people at a time.
