Nowadays people rarely use their garages for their cars and most end up as a storage room or just gathering dust. By converting your garage in to an extra room you can really make the most of your home. There are plenty of reasons why you might want to create extra space in your home; perhaps you want a home office or your expanding family needs extra living space. Whatever you choose to use the old garage space for Yarwood Construction will work with you to bring the reasons to reality.
Planning permission is not usually required, providing the work is internal and does not involve enlarging the building. Sometimes permitted development rights have been removed from some properties with regard to garage conversions and therefore you should contact your local planning authority before proceeding, particularly if you live on a new housing development or in a conservation area. Where work is proposed to a listed building, listed building consent may be required.
