Garage Conversion: Granny Annexe/Office
This granny annexe/office garage conversion was a real fun one to do as it was larger than normal and so we knew the transformation would be amazing. The customer, who had just moved in, worked from home so he needed a home office and also a place for his mother to move into in her later years.
This conversion had a bathroom, kitchen and a step down into the office/bedroom area. We also fitted a new boiler system and as you can see it turned out beautifully… another happy Pro Build customer.
Our spacious double garage had sat empty, slowly filling with junk for seven years when we decided to get quotes from local building specialists to get it converted into a standalone granny annexe or office space. We thought that it would be far more expensive than we could afford, and some of the quotes we got were unfathomable, some were very reasonable, but in the end we chose Pro Build for a few different reasons: Firstly, Les from Pro Build found time amongst his busy schedule to come out and look at the property, to gauge what was needed and to take measurements so that he could give us an accurate quote, and this quote didn’t really change at all from the beginning till the end of the build.
Secondly, the team at Pro Build had an extensive collection of photographs covering the processes of each conversion they had completed previously. Many of these pictures included members of the team at work, and it was evident from these pictures that the quality of the work and the attention to detail was exactly what we were looking for. Lastly and most importantly the price was very reasonable – the more expensive companies didn’t even bother to pay us a visit in order to give us a tailored quote, and this lack of professional courtesy left us feeling cold. What we needed was assurance that they understood our needs, instead we got a seemingly random number plucked out of thin air. The cheaper companies seemed rough and ready, with no track record or photographic records of the previous work, so whilst the prices were enticing, the lack of evidence and failure to visit us to quote properly for the work made us very nervous.
From the first meeting with Les we knew that Pro Build were the team for us! Once the build began the team were professional and courteous, they were respectful to our neighbours and they worked long hours. They planned each stage of the conversion around the availability of the team of professionals they employ to take care of the gas, electrics, plastering, external render and the build itself. The team from the local borough building regulations department were consulted throughout and over the course of four weeks we watched our garage become a fantastic and spacious office/granny annexe with a fully functional kitchen and bathroom. We can’t recommend Pro Build enough and were glad that they were able to fit us in amongst their jam packed calendar of conversions. We are over the moon with our new space and are fully moved in and using it everyday.
