What will it cost to do the project?

Garage conversion costs can vary considerably, as each project has its own unique measurements, processes, materials and associated regulations. As a rough guide, most garage conversion projects (which result in a habitable space) start from approximately $40,000+. Prices will rise along with structural requirements and any requested luxury features. 
*Note: these costs are rough estimates only and are subject to change. For a cost estimate accurate to your specific project, please consult your local renovation specialist.

What are some important things to be aware of when renovating a garage in Melbourne?

Converting a non-habitable space (such as a garage) into a habitable room (such as a sleepout) generally requires development approval. It’s also important to note that there are strict regulations in place surrounding ceiling height, subflooring, energy efficiency, insulation and ventilation - a Refresh Renovations specialist can advise you on how this might affect your garage conversion.  

Will you take care of any council applications required for this project?

Yes. Your Refresh Renovations specialist will advise you on whether or not your project will require development approval, a planning permit or building permits. Likewise, if you live within a heritage zone, or if any specific regulations need to be adhered to when carrying out your renovation, Refresh will take care of the paperwork and carry out every detail to a high standard.

What are some of the current garage renovation trends in Melbourne?

One of the top reasons homeowners decide to convert their garage is usually due to a need to provide more room for a growing or extended family. In this case, converting your garage into a self-contained unit is preferable and also offers the possibility of additional income in the future. That being said, there are so many possibilities when it comes to converting your garage, and a creative design could significantly increase the value and functionality of your home.
