Converting your Garage can be an ideal solution to increase your living space and add value to your home.

Garage Conversion Cost

It is important to understand the medium-term costs of converting your garage. To increase your living space can obviously increase the value of your property but you should also consider the financial consequences of a smaller garden and loss of secure parking.

If the garage is converted well, by garage conversion experts and professionals, it can increase the value of your property by 10 per cent upwards.

But the the loss of your garage can reduce the value of the property by the same amount. This is where SimplySelf-Build can help.

Adding value to your property

If you have space for a garage on your property, you could further add around 10 per cent to the value of your property, with a large double garage on a large family home adding up to 20 per cent in value; when put into perspective like this, your garage conversion ideas lose attractiveness.

But don’t let this ruin your garage conversion plans – we have the solution.Simply Self-Build offer both a range of popular DIY garage creation kits, and also a bespoke garage design and build service.

The SimplySelf-Build “New Garage Starter Kit”

Your existing garage, whilst suitable for conversion, may not be quite so useful as a new garage could be; by designing a new garage, you can incorporate features that you need; room-in-roof options, integrated rooms…or even a different location. To design your own garage, you will need to create garage plans. Our sister company TimberTecs operate UK nationwide and offer a garage design service [visit site]. Once you have plans, we can then quote you for the creation and installation of your dream garage design.

  • Converting a garage to something you can earn or just to increase the value of your home is a practical idea. If your old garage is not used anymore, you can think about renovating it again and converting it into a house and make it available for rent. Do not waste a space you are not using because it will not only add to your income it can also contribute to the view of your home.

    Garage is the best place to be converted to a utility space, it can be converted to a store room, study room, or a kitchen. It can give you that extra space of comfort and solve your space constraints. It can be converted to a fully functional abode.
