If the size of your family has increased and you are desperately looking for ways to add more space, then all that you need to do is convert your garage into a living area. Converting your existing garage into a new living space is a prudent way to add more space for your family. If you are one of those people who use the garage to store old unwanted items, then it is time to use that valuable space wisely.

A garage conversion is often cheaper and takes less time than a standard house extension because it does require additional outside construction work. But the big question is: How much does a garage extension cost? On average, a garage conversion costs between $10,000 and $50,000. Below are the main factors that will determine how much your garage extension will cost.

What you plan to convert the space into

Are you planning to convert your garage into a family room, a new bedroom, a home gym, or a kitchen extension? How you plan to utilize the garage space will determine how much you will spend on it. For instance, it is more expensive to convert a garage into a kitchen than turning it into a new bedroom.

Type and size of the existing garage

The cost of your garage conversion will also depend on the size and nature of the current garage. There are three types of garages. They include an integral garage (a garage housed inside the building), an attached garage (has its roof and outer walls) and a detached garage. Integral garage conversions are often the cheapest ones to convert while detached garage conversions are the most expensive to transform. The space of your garage will also affect the cost. More square feet means more expenses.

Type of your property

Converting a garage of a listed building is costly than one that is not listed. Owning a listed property means that your house gets to enjoy more privileges and opportunities. However, it also means that you cannot do anything that you want without approval from a relevant authority. This increases conversion costs.

The condition of the existing garage

If the garage is generally in a bad state (needs more repair), then more work will have to be done to convert it into a living space. This will increase the conversion cost.

Other essential factors that can affect your budget include where you live, the quality of the contractor that you hire and the quality of materials used.
