Loft conversions and garage conversions

Homeowners around Manchester and Cheshire frequently ask us to help them change traditional storage areas in attics or garages into useful, habitable rooms.

A loft conversion can often provide space for at least one bedroom and en-suite facilities, while a garage conversion can be a cost-effective alternative to building a new side extension, especially if transformed in line with building regulations (which can include creating a ground-floor bedroom).

Many conversions can be achieved within permitted development guidelines, although planning permission may be required for particular features – such as front-facing dormers, balconies or new materials, such as render or timber cladding.

A few of our recent loft and garage projects are detailed below. If you’d like to know more, or would like a quote from us, please drop us an email at hello@whitfieldarchitects.com.
