Extra space often becomes wasted space. If that’s the case with your garage, it may be time to think about a garage conversion. Granny flats, home gyms, and rumpus rooms - there’s a multitude of possibilities to consider.
Get in touch with a local Geelong Renovation Consultant to discuss how Refresh can improve and optimise your underutilised space and transform it into something great.
Refresh Renovations offers a comprehensive approach to renovations that puts homeowners at the centre. Gone are the days of disorganised, mismanaged home improvement projects that cost time, money, and peace of mind.
We aim to prioritise the homeowner’s experience with a straightforward and stress-free renovation. Our Renovation Consultants are so much more than project managers. From the early concept stages through to the final delivery, they will remain your single point of contact, giving you the most important information but not bothering you with the details behind the scenes.
With their trusted network of industry professionals, you can rest assured that your local Geelong Renovation Consultant will be enlisting the help of reliable contractors and preferred suppliers to complete your garage conversion with a high level of craftsmanship and care.
Not all conversions need to be dramatic transformations. Providing they improve the space, making it better suited to your lifestyle, simplicity is great. Geelong’s sports and leisure scene is deeply embedded in the city’s culture and a garage conversion that leans into that just makes sense. Maybe that looks like optimised storage for your surfboards and equipment, or with shock-absorbing rubber gym floor tiles so you can work out comfortably.
With Geelong’s connection to the Surf Coast Highway, it could be good economics to create a well-appointed guest suite for out-of-town visitors. Or, if you’re after a basic sleepout for the teenagers or an upscale granny flat for the in-laws’ extended stay, we can help make the conversion fantastic.
A key element of our stress-free renovation process is the variety of services we offer in one place. From plumbing and electrical to structural engineering and architectural design, we can tackle the whole gamut. So whatever your garage conversion needs, we have the professionals to get it done.
...and anything else you can think of!
There are many variables to consider when determining the cost of a garage conversion, but let’s take a look at two Refresh projects to give you an idea of what’s achievable at different price points.

Converting this garage to a sleepout cost $188,000 and included:

*Costs are rough estimates and are subject to change. For a fixed-quote accurate to your specific project, please consult your local Geelong Refresh Renovation Consultant.
Your garage conversion will require a City of Greater Geelong building permit. But we’ll prepare and take care of the application to ensure your project is completed safely and up to code.
