Garages and Conversions

Garages

Garages are built in all different types, finishes and sizes. See below for shape ideas.

All garages below are built with brick. You may also build with blocks and plaster smooth or dash. These are likely to be slightly cheaper alternatives than brick.

Building Control & Planning Permission

Building control is not required on garages under 30m2 floor area. Planning may be required depending on height, size and if there was not a garage on the site previously. We can take care of all applications and design

Garage Conversions

If your garage is not being well used why not put it to a better use by converting it into another living room, bedroom, sunroom, office or bathroom. Seymour Construction will be happy to help with design as well as building.

Cost

There are several choices in converting your garage e.g. a cheaper conversion may involve leaving the garage door as is but erecting a stud wall inside. A more expensive conversion may involve re-building the front of the garage with a cavity wall, creating new openings to the side wall, and altering plumbing and electrics for the new room.

£4000-£20,000
