Do I need an architect for a garage conversion?

garage home office conversion

With the events of the last year, many more of us are working from home and choosing to do so on a more permanent basis.

This has led to a week on week increase in demand for garage/office conversions. With many choosing to retain the exterior of the house visually, an insulated, secure garage door is on most people's list of must-have's. This means you can go to town on the interior of the home office to personalise to your exact needs and tastes. Whether you decide to use an architect for this part of the process, another house design professional or come up with designs yourself is a personal decision that should be based on the scale and difficulty of the project. Using a design professional will mean experienced design input and ideas that you might not have considered or chosen. A professional designer will also have a reliable network of trades and will have experience in dealing with building control. Obviously the biggest drawback of using a professional is the design cost which can range from a few hundred to thousands of pounds. To save money, some people choose to come up with a design themselves and carry out all the work they can on a DIY basis - this is a great option for those with the time to invest and working on limited budgets.
