Garage conversion to granny flat

Converting your garage space into a granny flat can provide space where aged family members can live in or for rental purposes. The possibility of having an extra kitchen, bedroom and bathroom is great because it leaves the family with a lot of options.

Most garage spaces are greatly limited in terms of space, which is why you need to think deeply on the design you propose to use for your granny flat. This is important if you want to maximize comfort. When fleshing out the layout and design of your garage conversions Brisbane to granny flat, it is important to consider other building and structural factors.

Factors to consider during a garage conversions Brisbane

  • Council approvals – Any need for council approval? That depends on how far you intend to take the renovation and the state and local council building requirements.
  • Converting back – Should you sell the house later, will there be any need to do a re-conversion of the garage, and how much will it cost?
  • Ceiling height – your ceiling is expected to meet the minimum height requirement.
  • Adequate windows – there is a great need for natural light.
  • Waterproofing – inspections are necessary to be sure the concrete is adequately waterproofed to prevent water from coming out via the floor.
  • Insulation – when you stand inside the garage during winter, most times it is colder than every other part of the house. That’s because it is not insulated.
  • Smoke alarms – when the conversion is meant for a sleeping area or bedroom, it might require a smoke alarm. (We advise you put one in place irrespective of whatever the room will be used for)
  • Additional plumbing – what’s the level of plumbing that will be required when adding a kitchen or bathroom.
  • Where will your car be kept? – Do you need to build a carport to keep your car safe?

What’s the cost of a garage conversion?

A lot of factors help to determine the cost of a garage conversion project.
