reconfiguremyhome.com advised their clients on how to plan and convert their double garage to create a detached ‘Barn’ style one bedroom bungalow. We advised on the ‘Laws of change of Use’ as full planning permission was not required and dealt with all Building Regulations issues and the local authority Building Inspector.
The design of 500 sqft 1 bedroom bungalow centred around a large open plan living space in the right hand garage and separated the shower room, bedroom and utility area to the smaller left hand garage.
