Garage Conversion Services

Garage Conversion

Garage conversions are a popular way to add more living space to a home without needing a costly extension. They typically involve designing the new space, obtaining any necessary permits and approvals, and then doing the construction work.

We are a leading garage conversion company, converting your garage into a usable living space, which may involve turning it into a bedroom, gym, entertainment zone, office, or playroom.

  • The first step we undertake to convert your garage is examining the available space. This may include checking the garage’s structure, foundations, and insulation.
  • Once our garage conversion builders establish the suitability of your conversion, our team will work with you to design the new space, considering factors such as lighting, heating, ventilation, and plumbing.
  • We will verify if the conversion adheres to building codes and regulations.

Garage Conversion Designs

There are various design options that our garage conversion contractors can help you with:

  1. Open Plan Design: An open plan design can create a spacious, modern feel in your converted garage. You can create an ample space perfect for entertainment or family activities by removing interior walls.
  2. Mezzanine Level: One of the modern garage conversions, a mezzanine level can significantly add extra space to your space. This elevated area can be utilised for several purposes, such as a bedroom or home office.
  3. Built-in Storage: Storage can help keep your place organised and clutter-free. Consider incorporating shelving, cabinetry, and built-in wardrobes to maximise your storage space.
  4. Outdoor Access: Adding outdoor access to your converted garage can help create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living. Consider installing large glass or sliding doors to connect to your outdoor space.
  5. Skylights: Skylights can bring natural light into your space, creating a bright and airy space. They can also reduce artificial energy consumption.
  6. Multi-Functional Designs: Picking multi-functional designs for your garage conversion can be helpful. Consider incorporating a pull-out sofa bed or a wall-mounted foldaway table to create a flexible space that can be used for various purposes.

Planning Permission for Garage Conversions

Most garage conversions fall under permitted development rights, meaning planning permission is not required. However, particular exceptions may limit these rights:

  1. Size and height restrictions
  2. Changes to the exterior
  3. Listed buildings or conservation areas

It’s always best to consult your local planning authority before starting building work to ensure you have the necessary permissions. Our garage conversion services include advice regarding planning permission and the complete responsibility to get approval, should you need one.

Building Regulations and Garage Conversions

Garage conversions should adhere to building regulations, which ensure that buildings are safe, energy-efficient, and accessible. Our expert architects will ensure complete compliance with all building codes, which typically cover:

  1. Structural Stability: Any changes to the garage’s structure must comply with building regulations to ensure the building remains structurally stable.
  2. Fire Safety: A garage conversion must comply with fire safety regulations, including smoke detectors, fire-resistant doors, and appropriate fire exits.
  3. Insulation: The garage’s walls, floors, and roof must be insulated to ensure the space is energy efficient and comfortable.
  4. Ventilation: Adequate ventilation must ensure the space is healthy and free from dampness and condensation.
  5. Electrical and Plumbing: Any electrical or plumbing work must be in line with building regulations to ensure it is safe and meets the necessary standards.
  6. Accessibility: If the garage conversion is used for living accommodation, it should be accessible for people with disabilities, including wheelchair users.


We are also extremely proud to say that we have formed a partnership with Tree-nation and will be planting 100 trees for every loft conversion we build.

We feel it is our responsibility to put back into the environment what we take out and play a role in creating a sustainable world for future generations.
