Q&A

Nearly all garages are suitable for conversion. Occasionally the planners put a condition on your house that the garage cannot be converted, but otherwise it always can be.

Most garage conversions involve waterproofing and insulating the floor and walls, and insulating the roof. The floor is usually raised to the house floor level and the front garage door is normally blocked up with a window inserted. Some garage conversions involve the addition of a w.c. or an en-suite, plus knocking a doorway through into the house. Sometimes gas or electric meters need to be relocated. Electrics and heating from the house are usually extended into the new room. Sometimes we convert the back half of the garage to a room and leave the front half for bike storage, with the front garage door staying in place.

Any loft is suitable for conversion if the height from the top of the ceiling joists to the underside of the ridge is 2400mm or higher. It can be possible to convert a loft that only has 2200mm-2400mm but the ceiling height on the new room can be low. Any loft with either a traditional roof with purlins and struts, or a truss rafter roof can be converted.

Most loft conversions involve removing the purlins and struts or the central members of the roof trusses and re-building the strength back into the roof by adding steel and/or timber beams, depending on the layout. The roof and external/party walls will need insulating and a staircase is usually brought up from the first floor, which can results in the loss of a bedroom or part of a bedroom, depending on the layout, and the headroom to the current staircase, which has to be maintained. Some loft conversions have only rooflights in the slope of the roof to give light and ventilation whilst some have a dormer extension to add floor space and headroom and to achieve a window. Some loft conversions involve the addition of a w.c. or an en-suite, or a bathroom.

We love our job because we can create rooms that people will really like, and we take great satisfaction out of adding ideas and value into any project, however big or small. It is very fulfilling for us when we design something that gives our clients what they wanted, but also when we can suggest ideas that our clients hadn't thought of which can make the new room special, or different.

The joy of designing inspired us to start our own business, and we love the design process and seeing the final outcome in fruition.

We have over 30 years of experience listening to our clients ideas and helping them to achieve their goals and more, and we have worked with the planning officers and building inspectors on thousands of local projects which gives us an excellent insight onto what is possible, and what is likely to be approved by the councils.
