Converting Your Garage into Living Space

By 9th January 2023No Comments

Garages often become idle spaces. Many don’t have the room for modern vehicles, so they end up becoming a storage space instead. A complete garage conversion could provide you the perfect space for your family and enhance your home.

This month’s blog at Bellamy Building Company Ltd looks why you could benefit from converting your garage. For more information, call us in Barnsley on 01226 725 358.

More About Us

Separation from the Main Property

In addition to extra living space, a garage conversion is separated from the main property. This provides enhanced privacy.

Adds Property Value

A quality garage conversion that has been well planned and built can add as much as 10% to the value of your property. Buyers will happily pay more for an additional room.

Given the low cost of the work as the core structure is already there, it provides a high return on investment.

Keeps Your Natural Light

One of the main issues with a property extension is that it can cut off natural light to your home. As your garage is an existing structure and doesn’t need external works, you will keep a lot of light.

You also have the opportunity to add more light with extra windows. As a result, this will brighten up your home.

About Our Home Extensions

Quick to Construct

A garage conversion is a quick turnaround. The walls, roof and foundations are already there, so it’s pretty simple work. It is also fairly flexible as the space can be moved around.

Council Tax is Unchanged

One worry about extending your home is if there will be a change to your council tax. However, a garage conversion has no impact on this. So, you shouldn’t see a monthly increase.

This is also something to think about as a future buyer.
