We pride ourselves on the success of the garages we have converted into fully integrated expansions of family homes without the need for increasing the footprint of the house.
Converting your garage could provide you with any number of solutions to your requirements;
• New bathroom
• Granny annexe
• Accessible bedroom or bathroom.
• Home cinema
• Home office
• Kitchen or dinning room extension
We ensure a smooth flow from the existing parts of the house into the new space reclaimed from the garage by building up, or lowering the floors so they are all one level.We install windows and new doors to ensure the access points are in the right place for good ergonomics and to tie the garage conversion onto the existing house seamlessly.
Carl Winn Joinery can project manage the entire build on your behalf if necessary. We work closely with our team of building trade partners to be able to offer you a complete garage conversion service in York and the surrounding areas, from the planning and design stage right through to decorating, and everything in between.
It is the responsibility of the home owner to to check with the relevant local authority planning department prior to starting building work to see if planning permission is necessary, however, 90% of garage conversions do not need planning consent as you are not changing the footprint of the property or changing the designated use of a property.
Garage conversions do need to conform to building regulations which include factors such as wall insulation, ventilation, damp proofing, drainage when needed, and the infilling of the existing garage door with a suitable, well supported construction. Detached garage conversions can also be subject to further regulations.
Please do get in touch with us to discuss your requirements. As a York garage conversion specialist,we are only too happy to help you navigate through process of expanding your living space and adding value to your home.
