While it is best to check with your local authority, integral garage conversions do typically fall under Permitted Development, meaning planning permission is not required. However, if you live in a conservation area or listed building, you will almost certainly need planning permission.

The first step with any garage conversion is to conduct an assessment of the existing structure, in particular the soundness of the foundations, walls and roof.

This will go a long way to revealing the extent of works required to create a comfortable living environment – so it’s a key part of the design stages. If the building is in an especially dilapidated state, it may be cheaper to knock down and replace.

Measure the head height. The minimum height you need for a loft conversion is 2.2m, and you can easily measure this yourself. Take a tape measure and run it from the floor to the ceiling at the tallest part of the room. If it's 2.2m or more, your loft should be tall enough to convert.

Step 1: inspection of roof space
The first stage in any loft conversion will typically involve your roof space being inspected for it suitability in terms of a conversion taking place. When it comes to what is actually being inspected, it will be things such as access, height as well as any potential obstacles that could arise. For example, chimney stacks or a water storage tank in the roof could make things a bit more complicated, but can be addressed nevertheless.
Step 2. An architect or surveyor confirms suitability
Once the roof space has been assessed for suitability when it comes to a loft conversion, the next step usually involves an architect or surveyor verifying the loft’s suitability for work to be carried out too. In addition, the architect or surveyor will also take into consideration as to whether the building itself is adequate to take the added load that is typically involved in a conversion.
Step 3: Plans are made
Once this step has been carried out, the plans are drawn by the architect or surveyor, and this is also a chance for you and your team to get a thorough understanding of what your costs will be, and how you can potentially cut the cost of certain things by carrying these out yourself on a DIY basis.

I have been in the trade for over 20 years tho i have started up on my own just over 10 years ago

I give 1 year guarantee with my work if you order your materals with me

I love that I have a great degree of control and freedom within my job. I work full-time on a flexible schedule, and my high-quality work and results. I work hard to maintain that level of trust, which keeps me engaged and excited — but at the same time, I love that my job enables me to love and enjoy my other passions in life,”

A friend advised me to do what I'm good at, do what is easy for me and do what I love... sounds too simple, but it actually led me to starting my business that make work fun for me every day!

When a client asks, “Why should we hire you over everyone else?” my answer is simple: “Don’t ask me, ask our clients
