Finished Room Over Garage. These are great bonus rooms that are often used as a playroom, home theater, gym, office, art studio, guest room. Since many homes in the area don't have basements, they can be an advantage. If it has a closet though, it will also be counted as a bedroom in the listing.

Finished room over the garage but usually not the best in heating and air. In most cases a window unit is needed in the summer and a small space heater in the winter. Many mentioned it is a bedroom if it has a closet but it most also have a window. Have a great day! Jen Basnight

"FROG" was actually coined in Chesapeake, Virginia. It stands for finished room over garage. If the room has a closet, it can be counted as a bedroom. In some of these rooms, the side walls slope. If the side wall is less that shoulder height (about four feet or less) only 75% of the square footage can be counted for appraisal purposes. Some has a separate staircase, which can make it a great in-law suite or teen retreat.

FROG is a finished room over the garage. Did you know that if a room has a closet, the listing agent can identify the room as a bedroom?
