I couldn’t recommend Amazing Space high enough. I had a complete new kitchen and bathroom installed and redecoration of my flat. They worked really hard to transform my home into exactly how I wanted it to be. They were extremely tidy and polite. Communication was on point. More...

Q&A

The first you need to do is check that you have no clauses or restrictions in the deeds for your property prohibiting a conversion on your garage. If not, here are some pointers to advise you.

1) A solid structure and roof are a good start. (If not this can also be costly as it may need to be rebuilt)

2) Make your decision on what type of conversion you want. If you want to extend or add windows or some kind of external door access, or the garage is detached you may need planning permission. If you maintain the existing look of the garage by retaining the garage door and converting behind it, the work can be done under permitted development. All garage conversions need to conform to building regs.

3) Decide on a plan of works. Your builder should be able to revise a basic plan, however you will need a Structural Engineer to revise all structural alterations and to provide you with a plan and specification to be signed off by building control.

1) Carry any building works to extend, alter structurally or add any below ground drainage. Additionally carry out any necessary repairs to the existing structure and roof.

2) Build a Damp proof course linked it into the existing one at the proposed room dimension where the garage door opening is situated or has been removed. Lay a soft compacted layer of sand with an internal DPM, (which is a water proof membrane) to the floor area. It needs to be tucked into the Damp proof course. Then fit insulation boards and apply the screed layer.
NB: Services can be installed with in the floor build up such as electrics and plumbing.

3) Fix a timber framed ceiling if you do not already have one with insulation between joists. If you do not already have a cavity wall, a timber stud or block work wall will need to be built around the parameter and off of the damp proof course built in the previous stage.
To save space I recommend the timber stud wall with insulation between joist and a water proof barrier between the timber and the wall.
Fix a ply board to the stud wall and ceiling with insulated plaster board over and apply the plaster finish.
NB: Services such as plumbing and electrics to be first fixed in to the timber stud frames.

4) Carry out the second fix electrics,
Fit all doors, skirting, architrave etc.
Fit flooring and tilling, all specified fittings and decorate to a finish.

5) Ensure that areas of work throughout the build have been approved by building Control and signed off on completion with certification and compliance.

1) Head height and size determine weather or not your loft is suitable for a conversion. Ideally you need 2.5 meters clearance between the ridge plate to the existing joists in the loft that will leave you with a comfortable 2.2 meters clearance once the steels, joists, insulation, plaster board and flooring have been installed. However current building regs will approve as low as 1.9 meters of head clearance once the work has been completed. You can also lower the ceilings below to give you more head height in your loft, or use a structural floor system in the loft called Duo deck, both of which will add additional cost to your loft but will give you more of the required head height.

2) You also need to consider where the stair case will be fitted. Ideally you want it to wind above the existing house stair case. For this you need a continuous wall going into the loft called a gable end. If you do not have one you need to factor this into your budget. It may well be that the stair case will take up part of, or all of a room if positioned else where. The stair case will need 1.9 meters head clearance to meet current building regs.

3) For a decent sized loft conversion I would suggest that you need a loft that is a minimum of 5 meters across to 7 meters in length. We have worked on ones smaller but the space created has been small.
Adding a dormer will open up the space in your loft room significantly, so if your budget allows, it is a must for your loft conversion.

4) For a general rule of thumb, If your neighbours have the same house as you and have had there lofts converted, you should be fine.

I have been involved in the property, management and building industry for a combined 25 yrs. My company’s team has life long builders, fitters, installers and a structural engineer whose experience ranges from 15 to 40 years in their areas of expertise.

We provide a company guarantee for up to 10 years.

The interaction between us in the company, the professionals in the industry and Clients is a daily fulfilment. But nothing is more rewarding than having happy Clients at the completion of their projects

Having worked in the property industry for many years and having overseen numerous projects for large companies, I felt it was time to start something of my own. I feel that my company gives all the professional services along with the friendly, personable touch that only a smaller business can.

Because they want a professional service that is supplied by a high quality, value for money building company.
