Churston Builders – The Torbay and South Hams Builder. Garage Conversion, Davies Avenue, Paignton
Churston Builders, the Torbay and South Hams Builder, completed this useful garage conversion on a bungalow property in Davies Avenue, Paignton.
This project started in the summer of 2018. The plan was to utilise part of an existing double garage structure to provide additional living space and an ensuite shower room. The first task was to partition off the space that was to remain as the garage and then convert the remaining space to interior specification. To conform with building regulations and to make the space properly useable (ie. warm!) a raised floor was installed and the walls lined with 25mm rigid insulation between a studded framework, followed by first fix electrics and plumbing, then the stud work was boarded and plastered. The shower room tiling and installation was completed and second fix progressed to complete the electrics and timber works – door frames, doors, skirting. A smart vinyl floor was laid and the rooms decorated to complete.
