Flexible options

Considerations to take into account when converting your garage:

  • Do you need council approval?
  • If you plan on selling your house in the future, will you need to convert the garage back and at what cost?
  • Ceiling height - the ceiling must be a minimum height which some existing garages fail to meet
  • Adequate windows - natural light is important for most uses.
  • Waterproofing - checks need to be carried out to ensure the concrete has the correct waterproofing to stop damp from rising up through the floor.
  • Insulation - if you stand in the garage in the middle of winter it’s often a lot colder than the rest of the house as insulation is often a low priority in this room.
  • Smoke alarms - if you are converting to a bedroom a smoke alarm can be a requirement. (We recommend fitting one regardless of what this room is being used for to protect your family.)
  • Additional plumbing (if adding a bathroom or kitchen)
