I am appraising an older farm house that has a newly built detached garage with a finished room on the second level. It has electric and heat but no water supply. Owner is using it as a bonus/family room for large gatherings. I don't think that I should count this as living area since it is detached from the house and should give the garage extra credit in the grid for the room above it. Am I correct in doing this?
