A standard single garage is approximately 150sq ft. With the size of todays cars compared to when a garage would of ordinarily been built, they are it’s far too small to fit the average family car. Over the last few years, we have removed several existing garages and extended both in width and length making it easier to fit a family car and also adding additional storage.
The possibilities are endless, gain extra space and utilise it better by
Converting your garage into an Extra Bedroom
On the other hand that’s a lot of potential extra living space for you to convert into an integral part of your house. For those with a double garage the perfect solution may lie in a ‘part conversion’, where typically the front or rear of the garage is retained to house the lawnmower or your bicycle whilst the rest of the garage is converted into a habitable room.

Garages are considered a permitted development, You can build a garage without planning permission but it has to follow a very complicated set of rules. Needles to say we would arrange our architect to visit to give clarification and to apply for a lawful development certificate before works start.
You don’t usually need planning permission for a garage conversion, as long as the work is internal and doesn’t make the garage larger. However, be sure to check your permitted development rights if you live on a housing estate, as some properties may have a condition that requires the garage to remain as a parking space.
