I can thoroughly recommend Stewart Wells at Daking Design. He set the whole process out clearly and communication was prompt and helpful. We had never been through this process before and Stewart made it easy and stress free.
The drawings he produced showed he understood what we wanted to create and how we wanted our home to feel. Stewart is flexible with his time and meetings which is great when you both work fulltime. We were very happy with his service and would definitely recommend him to our friends and family. Mr & Mrs Squirrell ‘

Stewart has been incredible throughout. From the very first meeting, he has been attentive, responsive and has delivered everything he promised, within the timescales agreed.
His design satisfied every objective we set, and he was able to suggest improvements and additions which we had not foreseen.
The drawings produced for us were very clear, but detailed - so much so that several builders quoting for the work paid compliments to the plans.
Stewart managed the whole planning process from start to finish, liaising with the planning authority on our behalf, chasing them where appropriate and keeping us informed of progress throughout. He has responded to any questions we’ve had almost immediately, and made us feel like our project had his full attention.
His pricing structure is transparent and very competitive. We can not recommend Daking Designs highly enough.
Thank you.

Stewart has been very patient with us. We asked for plans for a single story extension, which changed a couple of times. He was practicle and helped us to see that one way would be better than another. When changes to the plans needed to be made he was quick and efficent. A very reliable man. More...

Stewart was very professional and who listened to what it was we wanted . He first contacted us on 7th Aug 2018 and has managed to draw up plans exactly as we asked for and submitted the plans on the 30th Aug as he said he would to the Council His charges are very reasonable and when you first meet him you know this is someone you can trust 100%. Would not hesitate in reccomending him. More...

Most garages are suitable for conversion. Key points you need to be aware of is that the garage will require insulation to bring up to current building regulations. This will involve insulating all walls and the floor, the floor will also need to be raised to match the floor level of the property. Garage conversions are a great way of making more room at a cheaper price than an extension. Most garage conversions fall under permitted development, which means no need for formal planning permission.

We visit your property to undertake a measured survey, evening and weekend appointments are available. We produce existing and proposed drawings for your project within a week.
Once you are happy with the drawings we will upgrade these ready for building regulations approval, these are the construction drawings.
When the drawings have been approved you are ready to start works on site.

First thing to do here is measure from the ceiling joist within the loft to the underside of the roof (ridge). If this is less than 2500mm a loft conversion isn't advisable due to lack of headroom.

I love building relationships with my clients and seeing the end of the project. Bouncing ideas off each other and coming up with a proposal which not only meets my clients requirements but also that bit more.
