Keith and his team were fantastic through the whole process. Keith was able to fit us into their busy schedule when we were let down by another company, something I will always be grateful for as I am sure it wasn't easy.
Jason and the team on site completed the job to a much higher standard than we could have ever expected. All of the team were friendly and tidied up after themselves on a daily basis. They made the whole process very easy we always knew what the plan was for the next day.
I could not recommend these guys highly enough!

Q&A

There are some main issues with garage conversions.

Initially the question is whether a garage conversion is permitted. Some newer developments have covenants restricting converting garages.

If permission is going to be needed from the Council they do look at parking issues. You may need to prove that you have two parking spaces on your
property. A guide size is 4800mm x 2400mm though do check with your Council.

Look at access from the main property to the garage. Is this achievable?

In most cases the garage floor needs to be raised for insulation and flooring purposes. Will you have the necessary headroom.

Please feel welcome to ask any questions.

Firstly are you allowed to carry out works. It will at minimum require Building Control Regulations in place.
We usually get stub joists in place first. This will take the new floor.
To create dwarf wall to the garage door opening.
Install electrical & plumbing services.
Install floor , install an assumed window to the garage opening above the dwarf wall.
Insulation and plaster boarding.
If new doorway into the main property this cut out as late as possible. Lintel inserted.
Plastered and then second fix electrics and plumbing.

Depending on size about 7 to 10 working days.

From the top of the loft ceiling rafters see if you have about 2400mm to the apex of the roof. When you stand in the loft bear in mind that the floor needs to be raised and the rafters increased in size. A little common sense will prevail. If unsure always ask for a free survey as this will determine for you.

As an overview we need to construct a new capsule within your loft and this complying to Building Regulations. This strengthens the floor
and roof rafters and allowing for extra required insulation.
Services need to be run through for all plumbing and electrics. In some cases cold water storage tanks needs to be taken into account and
preferably removed. The latter by either using a pressurised hot water tank or by installation of a Combi Boiler.
Stairs are towards the end of the project.
A loft conversion takes anywhere from four weeks to ten weeks depending on size and complexity.

I love the challenge of creating a new loft area yet trying not to compromise the floor layout below. All good conversions should appear as if they were always there and not something that detracts from the original home.
