Cost Effective Extensions (Garage and Loft Conversions)
Garage and loft conversions are one of the simplest and cheapest ways to add space to your home.
With most of the structure already in place a garage conversion can be as simple as removing the existing garage door and replacing with a window, forming a floor and upgrading the external walls to meet new insulation regulations.
Planning permission for a garage conversion is generally classed as permitted development meaning planning permission may only be required if you live in a conservation area or listed building.
Garage conversions are a cost effective and quick way to gain that extra room.
A loft conversion can also provide a cost effective solution to add extra rooms, often best suited to a new master bedroom and en-suite.
Important things to consider when planning a loft conversion are the height available for a conversion. Loft conversions can also fall under permitted development.
Always get plans drawn up for your project by an architect or architectural technician the drawings can form part of your builders contract to avoid future disputes by agreeing exactly what you want.
