Converting a garage advice 15:55 - Sep 9 with 511 viewsOhDavidMcgoldrick

Anyone have any hints and tips for converting a detached garage?
Looking to turn into an office to work from home. Currently its a traditional single skin of brickwork, single car garage.
I realise I will need to insulate it and bring electrics up to Part P etc. I will also need a Building Control application and structural engineer to check the new French doors opening I hope to put in.
Will I need planning permission or is it permitted development?

Any tips much appreciated,

Don't do what I did and get a bunch of cowboys who don't damp proof the walls properly

Ours was a double garage and didn't need planning permission. By the way, consider calling it something like a playroom. I don't know the exact rules but if you have a room that's a specific office, you can get charged commercial rates for it, as I understand (the same you would if you were working from an office). Don't hold me to that, though, I'm not an accountant!

Also, I don't think you can put a kitchenette in there, because it means it's habitable. As long as it's just a room with toilet/sink, then it should be fine.
