As well as conservatories, did you know that we also deal with conversion projects?
By converting part of your home, you can save money and the upheaval of moving house. We at Paines offer the option to extend an existing room, or even create a new room. We pride ourselves on quality craftsmanship so you will feel the conversion has always been a part of your home.
Garages for example are often under-used, with few people actually using them to house their cars. If you are looking for extra space but do not want to extend your home, a garage conversion is ideal. By converting this space into a liveable area, you can expect to add at least 150sqm of living space to your home.
Garage conversions are simple and cost effective and often do not require planning permission (although they will be subject to Building Regulations Approval). The end result should be indistinguishable, you will not be able to tell the new room was once a garage.
We are able to convert most types of garages - single, double, tandem, detached or integral, and it is also possible to convert just part of the garage, allowing storage space to be maintained -you can even keep your garage door in place!
An expanding family meant the need for an additional bedroom for Mr & Mrs Andrews of Henlow.
Having never used the garage to park their car in converting it was the most cost effective and practical way to achieve extra space without moving from the village location they have found so perfect for family living.
“With the property being both listed and in a conservation area we were concerned that we would not be allowed to make the necessary changes. Paines were able to satisfy the strict guidelines imposed on our property and came up with a design that not only gave us the additional bedroom we required but a dedicated utility area as well.
We can’t believe how much has been fitted into what was once an oversized junk cupboard! Paines were able to maximise the potential of our garage space. We never realised that the conversion would make our life so much easier.”
