Converting your garage into extra living space can be an excellent, cost-effective way to add to your home without the hassle of losing space somewhere else.
Four Common Questions
Is planning permissions required?
Planning permission is not usually required if all the work is internal and does not involve any extension.
How do I get started?
Once you know if planning permissions are required, consult a building surveyor, architect or structural engineer to help design your conversion plans.
Will a garage conversion add property value?
Typically, yes. Anything that improves your home and creates additional living space will add value. You need to ensure your project is managed and controlled so that the expenditure does not exceed the value-added.
How much will it cost?
The price varies greatly and depends on whether you employ a builder for the work or manage it yourself and use individual tradespeople or do some/all of the work yourself. Pricing could start at around £8,000.
