If you are looking to add square footage and livig space to your home, consider overhauling your garage with a garage conversion. Garage conversions can then be the answer for those seeking additional living space with the addition of a bedroom, bathroom, or play room. This affordable alternative to moving home has been the solution to adding just enough space to your home to provide the space for comfort and style. Because your garage already has four finished walls along with a roof, it is the most cost efficient way for new home additions. If planned right, attached and detached garages can blend into the home, adding the space needed for your extra playroom, home office or gym.
Before you start your garage conversion, consult your local town planning department to check for the current building code requirements. These requirements will include insulation and electrical specifications just to name a couple. If, however, your home is much older you may be required to have to replace the garage entirely or install upgrages. Once you find out the scope of your project it will help you calculate the funds you will need to complete the Conversion, and whether or not you would like to continue with your project. Typical costs associated with an average garage conversion are minor compared to moving home. Materials will run you between £2,000 and £4,000 for partial conversions and can go up to £20,000 for complete conversions.
A partial do-it-yourself conversion includes weatherproofing the garage door, or a quick fix removable panelling installed on the interior. It also includes adding a ceiling, lighting, flooring and plasterboard. Another partial conversion project could be installing plumbing or vents to extend your home's aircon and heating you’re your new room. Although the room will be functional for its desired use, it will still feel like a garage space. A complete conversion can be more costly, depending on the complexity of the Conversion. Make sure to design your Garage conversion prior to starting, to make sure you have a floor plan that will be functional and a good use of space.
Most Garage conversions begin with the removal of your garage door and it being converted it to a wall with windows and/or doors. This will be the biggest part of your frustration initially. A complete garage conversion can take between three to six weeks, depending on how much time your Conversion Company dedicates to your project. It may be a tough feat but completing a garage conversion in Sheffield can add a whole new look to your home, making it roomier and more versatile. For those looking to expand their home, but do not have the funds for a full addition and have a whole garage at their disposal, garage conversions can be a great alternative for you.
