My room is free standing. It was once a 3 car garage, but the previous owners took 1/2 of it for an office that was permitted. It was an L shape. It worked for a while, but a few months ago I convinced dh to open it up. Originally we were gonna open the entire thing, all 3 cars of it. But then I decided it was too much work and too messy. So for now I'm using 2/3 of it. We just got a quote for a bathroom and septic. Not sure if we will do that now or wait. My room is my favorite place and even dh loves it. I'm not sure whether to put a couch in there or not. I don't want clutter as I usually have 12+ gals over to crop on a regular basis. Wish you all lived closer. Thank you on the comments.
