Churston Builders – The Torbay and South Hams Builder. Garage & Outbuilding Conversation, Brixham
Churston Builders converted this run down workshop and garage to create a spacious 2 bedroom property with integral garage to accommodate the owners family on holiday.
This project, completed over the Summer of 2021, saw the Churston Builders team convert a run down garage and workshop into a beautiful 2 bedroom self contained dwelling suitable for extended family stays, holiday lets or Air B’n’B.
The majority of the existing building was ripped out including rotten floors and roofing, leaving just the retaining walls. The structure was then reinforced with a timber frame and an open vaulted roof installed with electric opening Velux windows. The open vaulted section of the building was home to the new open plan living area with kitchen, dining room and living space. further internal studwork created a ground floor bedroom then a master bedroom suite with full height windows above the retained garage space.
During the course of the project we also created a redesigned patio area finished with contemporary porcelain tiles and removed the existing concrete driveway and refinished the entire length with charcoal pavers to create a stunning entrance.
This project shows just what can be done with existing structures that at first glance feel like they’ve passed their sell by date. the conversion is one of the most satisfying reconstruction jobs we’ve completed in recent years.
