SHELL GARAGE CONVERSIONS
Some clients know that they would really benefit from a garage conversion, perhaps into a new kitchen, bedroom, or playroom, but either finances are a little tight and the banks begrudging when it comes to loans, or they have their own interior design and construction skills and want to do the finishing themselves. We can accommodate any level of conversion and complete it to whatever stage our customers want before handing it over. Clearly there are certain basics including replacing the garage door with either walls or walls and external access, and internal stud walls and flooring will be required. Insulation is another issue, and for almost all intended usage there will need to be rewiring and plumbing. If you want the basic shell of your new room but not the finishing then talk to us today about what we can do for your.
Given that a professionally constructed garage conversion will add considerably to the value of your home we normally advise homeowners not to take chances with cost cutting when it comes to finishing. Your outlay today will be paid back in the rising value of the home. However in some cases we appreciate that you may prefer a simple shell build for reasons of cash flow, or the certainty that you will not move and so are unlikely to realise that increase in value.
A garage conversion is not a DIY job, at least not if it's going to work. Professional architectural knowledge is necessary to ensure that planning regulations are complied with and that includes all the standards such as height of ceilings, width of doors etc. A good design is worth its price in the long term since it will be more of a pleasure to live with so unless you are yourself a professional architect we would normally take charge of that aspect.
Building regulations cover everything from structure to insulation requirements, heating efficiency factors, plumbing and of course electrical safety. These are professional issues and require professional solutions, and so we strongly advise that only qualified plumbers and electricians be called in for the job. If your reason for wanting only a shell conversion is that you are spreading the cost then perhaps you could talk to us about breaking the conversion into separate stages to ensure you still benefit from our professional plumbing and electrical work.
Benefits of Shell Conversion
With all the caveats above there are still good reasons why customers call on us to only complete a shell. If you're looking at a long term plan and want time to bring in interior designers and fixtures and fittings specialists further down the line then you may simply want that exterior, floors, and ceilings sorted now with later work at a later stage. Or perhaps your garage isn't in such great shape and you want to tidy it up, end the drafts, and get a feel for the shape before going ahead with the full and final conversion. Come talk to us and we'll help you shape that plan.
