Garage Conversion Projects

Create space and add value to your home with a garage conversion

Whether it’s an extra bedroom or a home office, a garage conversion is a cost-effective way to increase your living space.  As garage conversion specialists, CR Designs can help make your building plans a reality.

Start planning your garage conversion project with CR Designs

As a one-off project or part of a larger house remodelling, converting your garage is one of the easiest ways to gain extra room without building an extension on your home.

Whatever you have in mind, our garage conversion specialists can prepare concept designs and drawings, technical specifications and structural calculations.

We will also provide expertise at every stage of your building project.

Your garage conversion design team

CR Designs will assign a design team of garage conversion specialists to work on your project.

Working remotely, your project team will work with you to transform your ideas into concept designs and drawings.

They will suggest the most suitable options for your project based on your requirements, budget and the survey information from your garage.

As your garage conversion designs take shape, you can have unlimited revisions until you are happy with them. You will also be offered the chance to discuss the drawings via online screensharing and video calls.

Measured survey

We may require a measured survey your garage to provide the key information we need to complete your planning drawings, including:

  • Whether it is an integral or detached garage
  • Condition of the existing structure
  • Pitch of the roof
  • Head room – your garage conversion will need around 2.2m to 2.4m of headroom once the floor has been raised to 15cm above the external ground level.

You can carry out the measured survey yourself or for an additional charge we can do it for you.

Garage conversions & planning applications

Most UK garage conversion projects fall under permitted development, so it is unlikely that your project will require planning permission.

However, as part of our concept design & planning package, we will ascertain the type of planning application your need by carrying out a full check of your project against local and national planning permission advice and rules.

Your CR Design project team will prepare your garage conversion planning drawings within 2-3 weeks and then submit the planning application on your behalf.

We will then act as your agent with the council for the duration of the project.

Building control application

Like all construction projects, your garage conversion will need to meet building regulations.

With our building control package, our fully qualified garage conversion specialists will have your building control application ready to submit with 2-3 weeks, including construction details and technical drawings.

We will submit your application to the local council building control team on your behalf and act as your agent.

If structural designs (also known as structural calculations) are required, we can also prepare the drawings and submit them as part of the building control application.
