I am converting a integral garage into another bedroom, I will need to
put a new doorway into the garage. The problem is the I will need to
raise the floor by around 33cm. I am also putting a stud partition in
to keep some storage and the water boiler separate, I want to do this
first. Is laying joists the best option? The floor is concrete at
present I assume some sort of insulation will be required to satisfy
If anyone as tackled something similar I will be interested in any
problems encountered or tips.
Doing something similar, you need planning permission first. If the outside
wall to the garage is single brick it needs to be made cavity. I am going
one step father and putting the bedroom on the top.
Hope this helps.
Already checked with planning, needed to provide a extra parking space
by extending drive, covenent states 2 parking spaces and the garage was
one. Outside wall is two skin. Still need to insulate but that is no
problem as I need to hide some pipes on the interior wall.
I've just detailed a garage for conversion to living accommodation, for
building regulations approval. I've no idea whether it's anything like
what you're doing, but if you want to see an example, pm your email
address and I'll post you a pdf.
