Converting a Single Integral Garage


This is the cheapest type of garage conversion you can do, and were going to start with the cheapest possible job you can legally undertake, relevant to this type of garage. This means were assuming there's already an internal access door (from the kitchen), the existing floor slab is lower than the house floor, ( so you may end up with a step down) and you won't be replacing the existing garage door, simply masking it off. This will probably give you a windowless room of course.


The basic job


A damp proof membrane, insulation and screed, to create a new floor on top of the existing concrete one.

A vapour barrier, insulation and dry lining to convert the existing exterior brick (side) wall.

A timber, insulated, plasterboarded stud wall, directly behind the up and over door.

A plasterboarded ceiling.

No plastering, just tape and fill the joints between the plasterboard and paint the room, (including the untouched internal house wall).

Fit one radiator, two electrical sockets, one central light and switch, skirting boards, architraving around the door and probably a bit of boxing to hide the gas meter.

That will take two blokes on £150 and £100 per day respectively, 7 days, plus a sparks and a plumber for a day each
