The Almost Impartial Guide to Garage Conversions and Loft Conversions

New Feature: Garage Conversion Information Website: Gain an extra room the easy way - convert a garage to a living room. A Garage Conversion does not usually involve a change of use as such and UK Building Regulations will therefore only apply to the structural alterations involved and to any other building controlled works such as drainage. For many UK Home Owners a garage conversion is one of the most economical ways to add a new habitable room to their property.… [read more...]

The Almost Impartial Guide to Loft Conversions

My family need more space - where can I find it?

With house prices constantly rising the need for more space for the family, or even a room to set aside for a hobby, means that moving to a new property could be too costly to pursue.

So look at your existing property - is there space to extend out into the garden? But do you really want to do that? According to a survey by valuers, when it comes to adding value to your property a loft conversion gets 10 marks out of 10, where an extension rates as a seven.

So that’s a double bonus, more living space and a more attractive property to potential buyers!

So what is to be? Extra bedrooms (perhaps ensuite), an office, playroom… the options are many.

Can I do the job myself?

A word of caution before starting on a loft conversion. Professional help and advice should be sought. A bodged DIY job will not add value to the property – anything but. A professional architect or builder will also be able to advise on the likely cost and if that cost will add monetary value to your home.

They will also advise on building regulations, planning permission and the structural stability of the space to be converted.

DIY amateurs should avoid anything to do with structural alterations, or substantial work involving electricity, gas, plumbing or water.

Before getting too carried away with how the extra space can be used, or what it will look like. Carefully work out the finances and how you will pay for everything. Again professional advice is well worth seeking when it comes to extending mortgages or taking out loans.
