Garage Conversion Floor Plans – The Basics

Garage conversion floor plans are not just necessary for ensuring that you get the finish that you want. They are also necessary for building regulations and enabling your builders to complete the task effectively. There are a number of different aspects to a floor plan that you need to consider.

A basic floor plan of your garage conversion plans needs to do more than just show what you want the finished room to look like. It needs to establish the extent of the work that is required to get to that finish point. Firstly, it will need to show the measurements of the garage, including the height to ensure that it is suitable for its intended purpose. It will also show where any new insulation, ventilation, and utilities need to be installed. If you are creating a new bathroom, then this will include plumbing and possibly mechanical ventilation. Any structural changes that need to be made will also be incorporated into the floor plans. These structural changes could range from the infilling of the original garage door to creating a new entrance, or the placing of internal doors and new windows to provide adequate light and ventilation. If the foundations need to be addressed, then this too will need to show on the floor plan. House extension plans for your garage often do require work to the foundations to stabilise any new wall that replaces the original garage door. Unless you have experience in designing and drawing up floor plans, an expert is always advisable.
