Transforming your home in Bath and adding living space has never been more important. If you are in desperate need of an extra room, maybe you're looking at ways of converting a garage or attic into a useful living space. Before you decide on doing this, and if you've got external space, think about the opportunities an extension would bring to your property.

If you have a garage which is attached to your house, but require the facility of off road parking, consider an over-garage extension. You will need an architect or building surveyor to check out the garage and ascertain whether it is substantial enough to be built upon. You might also think about an outbuilding in the garden rather than a linked extension, with various options available for impressive stand-alone garden annexes. These buildings normally will not need local authority planning permission and the options are endless; gym, detached granny annexe, cinema room or home office are some simple ideas.
