I will be undertaking a garage conversion soon and I will be posting questions along the way on this thread and would appreciate anyone who would like to chime in.
The garage is roughly 26’x26′. I will be adding exterior doors and windows, framing a small bedroom and bath, livingroom, a storage area with attic stairs, and framing the floor over the existing concrete floor with 2×6’s and insulating.
My first question out of the gate pertains to framing the rough openings for the Entry doors and windows. What is the proper technique for making these openings? Should I frame the openings from the inside and then cut out the siding (T 1-11) once all the framing is in place?
