Garage Conversions

Garage conversions can be one of the quickest and most affordable ways to add living space to a home. The foundation, walls and roof are already in place and often the wiring is sufficient. Also, if the garage is attached to the house, the entry already exists!


Garage conversions are a great way of obtaining that bit of extra room. A standard single garage is approximately 150 sq ft. and a modern family car struggles to fit in and still be able to open the doors! But that's a lot of extra living space if you convert it into a new room that blends with the existing house.


If you have a double garage, you may want to opt for a 'part conversion' where the garage is split into two rooms. One will add living space to the home whilst the other acts as storage for family bikes, lawnmowers etc.


Whatever you want to use the extra space for we can help plan your garage conversion.


Here are some popular choices for garage conversions and we can build them all:

  • Family room
  • Bedroom with or without en-suite facilities
  • Play room
  • Home office/study
  • Larger kitchen/utility room
  • Dining room
  • Home cinema
  • Granny annexe
  • Home gym
