Conversion of Garage into Annex


Highland Farm

Highland Farm is a delightfully neat, and deceptively large dwelling on a 6-acre plot, with good views of the countryside all round. The detached garage is located on the rear of the site and is surrounded by trees and hedges, with no residential properties within its immediate vicinity.

My client required the conversion of their double garage and store room into an annex that would provide convenient and protected living space for a close family member. The annex was to have one bedroom, a bathroom, a living/dining area, kitchen, utility and an entrance lobby; the latter as an extension. The foot print of the annex equated to 64 m², providing ample accommodation and independent living space for one person.

My role was to provide all the design and technical drawings for submission to the Council on the client’s behalf, in order to obtain Planning and Building Regulation Consent. Thereafter, the drawings were issued to the builders for pricing. I was happy to be able to manage the project until its completion and was just as delighted as the client with the result! The client’s family member was able to move in soon after completion and can enjoy continued independent living, alongside peace of mind and companionship.

Client Testimonial

“Dear Jean-Louis,

When Laura’s mum announced that she was going to come and live with us, it did come as something of a shock. Fortunately, the first thing we did was to talk to you about turning our garage into a one-bedroom bungalow.

Your knowledge regarding the planning process has been invaluable. The plans that you submitted are fantastic and have helped everyone concerned with the build, to know exactly what is expected of them. The layout of the house will be ideal for someone of Laura’s mum’s age.

You have been and still continue to be available to us as the build progresses, answering any questions or queries that we have had.

We will have no hesitation in recommending you to our family and friends in the future.”

Kind Regards,

Chris & Laura Endersby
