1. The garage’s construction quality

Not all garages can be converted; some are old, shoddily constructed, and may contain asbestos. If yours was constructed professionally
within the past twenty years, is made of brick or block, and is structurally solid, you may be able to convert it with minimal difficulty. Begin
by seeking guidance from a surveyor at your local council’s Building Control department.

new space flow with the rest of your house. Make sure your builder has access to materials that match the rest of your home, since the
garage door will need to be replaced with a window and matching bricks.

To make it useful all year, you’ll need heating and insulation, as well as plumbing, lighting, and security.

a living room or kitchen, it will need to flow smoothly with the rest of the house, so you may need to

4. Will you have to relocate a boiler or a gas/electricity meter?

may have.

5. Will my house’s exterior be ruined?

You could, so it’s worth thinking about. Bricks and windows, for example, must match the rest of the home as nearly as feasible.
