At Dawson Building, we’ve been offering garage conversions as part of our building services in Midsomer Norton in Wiltshire and the surrounding area for many years so we know exactly how to make the most out of your garage, no matter how big or small.
There are several reasons why you might consider converting your garage into an additional living space.
New addition to the family? Converting your garage into a new living space can be more cost effective than moving house. Maybe you need a bigger car and it won’t fit in your existing garage and you don’t want the available space to be wasted. However, one of the most compelling reasons to consider a garage conversion is simply to increase the value of your house.
Given that approximately 90 per cent of British garages don’t contain a car, they are a wasted asset with a cost of about £10,000 as part of the property’s total value. To calculate value added, multiply square footage gained by local price per square foot.
Last year, most property sales in Midsomer Norton involved detatched properties which sold for on average £271,357. Semi-detached properties sold for an average price of £198,795 while terraced properties fetched £156,292. (Source: rightmove.co.uk)
While the most popular gararge conversion is to create a second lounge, that’s far from being the only option. You might decide the house needs an extra bedroom or bedroom, a childrens’ play-room. Perhaps your existing kitchen is a little cramped or you’ve started working from home and need a home office.
