Garage Conversion - Help and advise - Where to find it?

Most homeowners will require help and advice for their proposed garage conversion. This is usually readily available from a local house extension designer or architect. Make sure you interview at least three and select the one that comes over as most pro-active after checking on their credentials, relevant experience and professional qualifications.

Avoid so called ‘architects or designers’ who are not from the home extension field. Some commercial professionals ‘dabble’ part time or ‘drop in and out’ of the residential development market who are often not up to date with residential design issues.

Some Councils offer a pre-application advise service for both Planning Permission and Building Regulations relating to garage conversions. They will be able to help and advise what permissions will be required and how to obtain them. They will be unable to offer any help and advise for your garage conversion relating to internal layout, construction elements and what the space is to be used for.

Many garage conversion companies offering a ‘one stop shop’ approach for design and build projects can be a great source of help and advise for garage conversions but they may be biased on cost and construction processes simply to suit their own standard or preferred methods of converting the garage space.
