Remodel garage into family room
Okay - we have an older home with a three car attached garage that I want to convert into a family room. There is a step down from the house and I thought I would build up the sub floor with 2x8 and plywood however how should I deal with the moisture that would collect on the concrete floor? Would placing a vapor barrier along with spray foam insulation on top and between floor joist eradicate the moisture concerns?
Plan to then build a garage in front of remodeled space - what is the proper method of tieing in to current garage?
Live in Twin Cities in Minnesota - frost line is 44 inches - typical footing depth if 48 inches
