Planning For A Garage Conversion Essex, London and Kent
Garage conversions are an ideal solution to adding more living space to your home, so if you live in Essex, Kent or London we can help you. Extra space can make all the difference to your homes value according to the Halifax.
Having a garage conversion is a great way to utilise unused space and transform it into a living space without going to the great cost of having a loft conversion or an extension.
A garage conversion can be a lot more inexpensive because you already have the foundations, walls and footings in place generally the main task is to remove the garage door and install a window.
We have helped a number of clients over the years with our garage conversions, John in Upminster, Essex was looking to extend his kitchen.
With no room for an extension the only way about it was to convert his garage and that is what we did, check out the garage conversion pictures.
