There has been a sharp rise in the percentage of the workforce now working from home in some capacity, and many homeowners are opting to convert the garage to facilitate this. The garage forms the perfect home office space. Garage office conversions offer just the right amount of separation from the home to enable a good work life balance, without either aspect bleeding too much into the other. They are also a very cost effective way of achieving extra space within the home, because the garage is often an under utilised space, which is already a solid structure, often containing enough services to make the renovation simple enough.
...and anything else you can think of!
Larger garages are excellent for converting to a Granny Annexe; No longer reserved for Grannies! Many homeowners are converting their garages into granny annexes to accommodate friends and family visits, or even rent out as serviced accommodation to bring in extra income. Granny annexes which are self contained fully serviced living spaces can add value to the property and are much sought after.
How much your garage conversion will cost will be very much down to the specifics of the project, including the square footage of the space, the complexity of the conversion, whether there will be an extension, or the addition of bathroom or kitchen elements, amongst other options for the project. The level of finish required and the materials chosen will also impact the price. The Refresh process is designed to enable us to give you a fixed cost before we start the build so you know exactly how much it will cost and how long it will take.
*Please note that these are rough estimates only. For a high-level indication of what your unique design will cost, the Refresh Process is designed to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.

Most simple garage conversions do not require planning permission, and even an extension on the garage conversion may fall under permitted development. If your home is a listed building or falls within a conservation area then additional council permissions may be required, but your Refresh renovation expert will advise you on this, and if required, take care of any planning or additional permissions.
