Observations of a Garage Conversion Specialist in Birmingham
Garage Conversion Planning
Unless, of course, you live in a listed building. A listed building is one of historic value and significance. You always need to apply for special permits when making alterations to protected building. But for every other type of modern home, you can simply make the conversion without needing permission. It’s one of the easiest and cheapest ways of creating an extension to your home without increasing the floor space or incurring expense too much expense.
Space is at a Premium
To many people, a garage is dead space; few people keep their vehicles in it these days because the driveway is more convenient. It’s a dumping ground for stuff you don’t know what else to do with. That’s effectively a whole room going to waste.
It Increases the Home’s Value
A garage conversion is an extra room created without adding to any of the floor plan space. Much like converting a loft into a spare bedroom, it’s an asset for your home regardless of use. Even if you’re not looking to sell now or in the near future, it will increase the home’s value. At a time when house prices are all over the place, a little bit extra is never going to hurt even if you do want to sell.
The integral structure of the building is already there. With a garage conversion, you don’t need an extension. Therefore, it’s a much cheaper way of improving your home. Most homeowners in Birmingham seeking garage conversions from Beeby Construction want to improve their properties. But they have a smaller budget, and neither the time nor the inclination to consider a larger extension. This is a great compromise for all concerned.
Quick and Painless
Do you have a new addition to the family such as a baby or an elderly relative moving in with you? Selling a home can be time consuming. If your household finances are already stretched, moving may even be out of the question. But you do need to make space for the new addition, if not immediately, then soon enough. A garage conversion allows you to rejig your home’s floor plan, either turning it into an annex, or switching out the old utility room into the garage. Essentially, a garage helps you better use of the space you have.
