Louise & David Williams – Newton Le Willows

For anyone considering converting their garage space – just do it using the expertise of Convert Your Garage!

Jim had been out previously and quoted for the work and after meeting other builders and plans changing etc, we called Jim back out again as he was the one that gave us the confidence to actually progress with the work.

Ours was a large double detached garage, entirely separate from the house. We have had 3/4 of it converted to create an en suite bathroom and a versatile main room (Its now an office, come chill out room, come guest room, come entertaining room. There is still a small section of garage that has been separated to allow for the usual garage paraphernalia that we all collect..

The complete build/transformation of the garage to the amazing space it has become, took 7 days. From day 1 of the build, all the guys ( i think about 7 on day 1..) were organised, hard working, polite, tidy and prompt. They listened well to our requirements and made some suitable suggestions. Even when we hit a snag (electrical supply), it was all managed professionally and with courtesy.

The space is now fully insulated, has windows matching the main house, own front door, a lovely sized bathroom, has the loft insulated and boarded with access hatch. You would be hard pressed to tell it had ever been a garage! The bathroom suite facilities are electric (shower/heated water supply to sink) with the saniloo style WC system – which i would highly recommend. Very quiet and unobtrusive and helps to keep costs of full bathroom plumbing down hugely – particularly when there is distance from main house to consider. The new space is warm, cosy and inviting

The little things such as the pipes, electric consumer units, alarms etc were all neatly boxed in. One concern i had on day 1 was the ‘dig’ for connecting water and electrical supplies. A flagged patio area and front door step had to be lifted and the ground below dug out, but they way it was done and put back you would never know!!

The guys all worked so very hard to complete the task and to a fab standard. I would highly recommend them – help them along with lots of brews/butties and they will be very appreciative of you too!!_
