Some of the most popular home extension projects we carry out are garage conversions.
It’s easy to see why. If you are cramped for living space and the garage is only being used for overflow storage, it makes sense to put the vacant area to better use.
A standard, single garage measures just 150 sq ft – which is a real squeeze for the average family saloon, but can make amazingly versatile extra living space, once converted into an integral part of the property. Upgrading its use could also significantly increase the value of your home.
Most garages can be easily adapted into an extra bedroom with an en-suite, a playroom, a dining room or study, even a ground floor granny annexe. If practical, you could go the whole hog and also build above the garage, to make a sizeable double storey extension.
The options are endless – and we’re proud to regularly undertake precisely this type of conversion work and more besides. Have you thought about a home cinema, for instance?
Alternatively, how about a part-conversion, where you retain the front or rear of the garage for the lawnmower, bikes etc and convert the remainder into living accommodation?
We’ll show you what’s possible!
