Garage Conversion in Edinburgh

A garage usually refers to space in our home where we are supposed to park our vehicle. But do we park our cars in the garage? Most of the modern cars are too big to be parked in a garage. Or in most cases, you might not be able to get out of the car after parking it in a garage, due to the car doors touching the walls. So most of the cars are usually parked outside the house and the garages in these houses end up as a storage place for unwanted or ‘use later’ products.

What Is a Garage Conversion

As the number of members increases in your home or to get rid of the feeling of congestion at your home, you might be in need of more space. You might either want to increase the space for an existing room or make a new room in your house. So the best option to do so will be to convert your garage to provide the necessary space.In most homes, the garage space is used to store unwanted products which might have some use in the future. But in a majority of the cases, these products degrade over time or are discarded off. So the best option for your home extension is the garage conversion. If in case you own a big garage and you only need to convert a part, that can also be done easily and quicker than the traditional home extension.

In simple words, a garage conversion is the conversion of the garage into a room that will act as an extension of your home. This done so by knocking off some walls and building some others

Benefits of a Garage Conversion

A general question that comes to people’s minds when they hear of a garage conversion is, why convert the garage? Why not extend some part of the house if more space is needed?There is not one but several reasons why a garage conversion is way batter than extending your home. All people might not be having the space to extend the home to add more space. For such people, a garage conversion is the only option to get more living space.

Even for the people that have land space available for an extension, a garage conversion is a better option. One of the plus points of converting a garage is that it costs way too less than building an extension of your home. Added to that going through hassles to get a permit for an extension can be avoided if you are converting the garage instead of extending any part of your house. Other benefits include:

  • No alteration to the exterior aesthetics of the house
  • Less time to create a new room space
  • No complicated planning necessary

How does a Garage Conversion work?

The first step is to contact us and explain shortly about your garage conversion plans. Once you have done that we will book a slot for your home visit at a time of your continence to have a detailed discussion. On the appointed day our team of experts will arrive at your home to inspect the garage space and to know about your plans. We will have a detailed discussion on how your garage can be transformed into the room of your desire considering your ideas and our suggestions. We will answer all your queries, explain in detail how the conversion process will be done, and also provide you an estimate at the end.

Once we are in agreement with the plan, an architect will be needed to draw up the final detailed plan of your garage which will be used by us as well as submitted to the local authority. Either you can choose an architect or we can provide you the one who is an expert drawing in garage conversion plans. The architect will then submit the final plan to the local authority for obtaining a building warrant which is legally compulsory in Scotland before the conversion of a garage. Once the warrant is obtained this drawing will be used by us to prepare an estimate for the work to be done. This estimate will be provided to you and we will be available anytime to clear any doubts you have regarding the amount.

Once you are satisfied with the amount, we will prepare a contract on which you will have to sign and also make a small deposit along with it. Once all this is done, we will fix a date to start the work and also provide you with a finishing date.The conversion can take 2 to 5 weeks to complete depending on the size, design and the nature of the conversion of the space. Please note that any building work cannot be started before obtaining the warrant from the local authority as doing so will be a criminal offence.

Once the conversion process is completed our managers will inspect the conversion and every nook of the space to ensure our standards are met. The certificate of completion will be sent to the local authority upon which the converted space will be inspected by an inspector from the building standards council. The inspector will check if space has been designed according to the plan we provided.

Edinburgh Facts

  1. Edinburgh is Scotland’s capital city with a population of around 482,000 people living there. This is a pretty obvious and common fact but did you know that the capital of Scotland used to be Scone (a village in Perth & Kinross) until Edinburgh replaced it back in the 15th century.
  2. J’K Rowling wrote most of the Harry Potter books whilst living in Edinburgh, with many of the sets of the blockbuster movies also filmed in the city including Victoria Street and Grey Friars Kirkyard.
  3. Something a little more relevant to the wall coating and roughcasting service we provide! Did you know that over 75% of the buildings in Edinburgh are listed, making Edinburgh home to the most listed buildings located in Scotland.
  4. A rather surprising fact for anyone who is not a local is that Edinburgh has the most tree’s per capita than any other UK city making it the UK’s greenest city.
  5. Edinburgh’s famous Royal Mile is not actually a mile long! Yep you heard it, the Royal Mile is actually only around 98 metres long, quite a bit short of a mile!
