A garage conversion could be accomplished on more or less any sort of garage, although with a single garage there are going to be limitations in regards to what use you can put it to. Whilst it's quite possible to convert both double and single garages, single garages barely have sufficient space to get a family car in and get the doors open, giving you no more than eighteen square metres to fiddle around with. It is because single garages have such a small amount of space that most property owners in Axbridge seldom bother to park their vehicles in them. You will sometimes observe their vehicles parked on the road or outside their garage, whilst the inside is packed with cycles, tools, lawn mowers and toys and various assorted clobber. You're going to have so much more room with which to work when you are altering a double garage, and you'll additionally have more alternatives in regard to what to use that added space for.

Half-Garage Conversion Axbridge

In certain scenarios the local authority could reject a "change of use" application for a garage conversion in Axbridge. This is more liable to be an issue if you live in an area of special interest, in a listed building, on a new housing development or in a conservation area, though it's quite unusual for this form of undertaking.
