LA Good Question: From Garage to Home Office?

LA Good Question: From Garage to Home Office?

First time buyer Nia, has this question:

My husband and I are looking for our first home with an office space to run a business from. Most houses in our price range don't have rooms that are adequate for this but some have dilapidated structures (usually garages) in the back that could be turned into a separate office (even better!) Having no experience with anything home-related or handyman-related, how do we go about researching how to insulate a structure? And how do we even know if it can be insulated? We are completely lost and any help you give would be great.

Thanks for the great question Nia, so ATLA'ers, what do you say. Ayone have experience turning their garage (dilapidated or not) into a sound home office?
