FAQ about Garage Conversions

Question Answer
What are the common uses for a garage conversion? Garage conversions can be used for various purposes, including home offices, bedrooms, home gyms, guest rooms, or even a small kitchenette and bathroom.
Do garage conversions require planning permission? In most cases, garage conversions won't require formal planning permission as they mainly affect the interior. However, it's essential to check with your local planning authority, as regulations can vary.
How can I enhance natural light in my converted garage? You can replace the garage door with windows or glazed doors to introduce more daylight. Consider creative design options, such as a fully glazed wall, to maximize natural light.
What insulation options are available for garage walls? For single-skin garages, internal insulation using studwork and plasterboarding is common. Insulated plasterboard and blown insulation are also viable options. Cavity walls can have insulation blown into the gap.
Can I retain a parking space in a partial garage conversion? Yes, if you're opting for a partial conversion, you'll need to erect a fully-insulated internal dividing wall designed to provide 30-minute fire protection. This can be done in blockwork or timber studwork lined with fireline plasterboard on the garage side.
