Converting your garage to another room of the house is potentially one of the easiest ways to extend your property and in most situations will not require planning approval as it falls within your permitted development rights. However, plans are required for your builder to price and carryout the work and to obtain Building Control Approval which is mandatory.


As most garages are quite small good design and use of space is omnipotent and intergration / access to and from the main is critical to the success of the project.


I can carryout a full appraisal of your garage and check its suitablity for conversion. Once you have decided to proceed I can look after the whole project from design through to obtaining any necessary Planning permisions, Building Control approvals, carryout detaild design and construction drawings, appoint suitable contractors and manage the whole construction process from start to finish.
