Converting half a double integral garage


So……. now we’ve got a “2 car wide” garage but the whole thing is still within the “footprint” of the house, i.e. there are still rooms above it. What you want to do is create a room in the half nearest the house and leave the rest as a junk……sorry, garage.

So, just like before, let’s price for the most basic job you can do and build up from there. Unfortunately you will have to look at our article… “Job 1 etc” to get the full picture.


The basic conversion job


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

An correctly insulated, fire protected, timber and plasterboard stud wall built right down the middle.

A correctly insulated, plasterboarded stud wall, directly behind the up and over door. (We’re assuming there are 2 doors, 1 for each side).

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 a radiator, two electrical sockets, a 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 …….

Labour…………………..
£2150.00
Materials…………………£950.00
Building control………. …
£350

Basic Job Total …….£3450.00…………give or take, exactly the same as the single garage job!

The following prices are in addition to this basic job.

Maybe you also
have to……..

Create a new flush internal door from the house…………
£550.00

Actually dig out half of the old floor (because it’s too high possibly), and lay a new concrete “base slab”
before undertaking the above, “basic job” floor work…………..£1000.00

Or, if you want to spend a bit more how about…….


Removing the garage door, putting in a new foundation and building a wall and window across the front, to “match” the rest of the house. This will be a bit of a must, or you will end up with a windowless room!

This price is minus the amount previously included in the
basic job for masking the door. …………..£1300.00

Building an insulated cavity wall down the centre rather than a timber stud wall.

This price includes laying a foundation (which would be done during the floor slab conversion).We have also deducted from this price, the amount previously included in the
basic job for building the stud wall…..£350.00

Plastering all the walls and ceiling……….
£400.00

Fit underfloor heating connected to your boiler…………..
£550.00
This price is minus the amount we included in the
basic job for fitting a radiator.
