After recently purchasing a home in southern Florida, my family and I decided to renovate the bare living space above the garage. It was a unanimous decision to make it a home gym where the whole family could exercise and work out. Unfortunately, we were dealing with a big issue of privacy. Since there were windows facing right out to the street, we wanted to keep it as private as possible so neighbors and strangers wouldnâ€™t see us working up a sweat in our exercise gear.
Not to mention, an even bigger issue; the climate of South Florida is hot hot hot! In fact, this weather is almost year round and being on the second level did not help at all. It was constantly hot and sticky up there, even when we were not working out. Not really the ideal environment for a gym.
