Conversion of garages into habitable space + fit out - Conversions - General job in Wallasey, Merseyside

Job description

I am looking to turn a one-bedroom flat, sitting on top of a double garage into a 2 bedroom house. This would roughly incorporate moving and re-fitting a kitchen and bathroom as well as converting the double garage fully into a habitable ground floor for the house. The whole front wall on the ground level would likely need to be re-built in order to replace the double garage doors, with windows and a normal front door. A staircase would also need to be installed to connect the two floors. I would also like advice on whether adding a pitched roof would be advisable (the current one is flat). The property has its own parking and access is straightforward.

The property also has only electric heaters and I would consider the installation of a full central heating system also.

I own the property, but would only be able to manage the project from a distance and would delegate most decisions and buying to the contractor who is hired. I have managed projects at a distance before and generally keep interference to a minimum. In return, you will find that you can get on with work on site as you see fit. Whoever takes on this project should be willing to buy necessary fixtures and fittings with general guidance from myself, as well as be prepared to, every so often, meet on site on a Saturday - as this might be the only time I would be able to attend. Otherwise, I would be available for questions at anytime of the week, by phone or email and would promise to give quick and clear answers.

If you are interested in quoting for this job - please feel free. I would particularly welcome those who have specifically undertaken garage conversions before and could guide the project through the building regs with the minimum of issues. However, I would be happy to hear from others too, particularly those who can provide references and examples of previous projects completed. Thank you for your interest.


Feedback for AGL Heating & Building

Gareth did a great job on my refurbishment. I was abroad during the project and he kept me fully informed through texts, emails and photos - allowing me to choose things like tiles, kitchen units etc all at distance, which was an enormous help. I trusted him to carry everything out to a good standard and was able to confirm this when I visited the finished property. Very pleased. Would happily recommend and use again.
