I'm looking for some guidance on what is required to convert an existing space above a garage into a bedroom.
The garage is attached to the house at ground floor level and the roof space above it has front and rear double glazed windows, it is boarded out/ plastered, and was advertised as a games room when we bought the house.
I would like to know how to find out what work would need to be done and what permission is likely to be required to enable me to class this as a bedroom.
A window and safe exit in case of fire.
Should also not effect any other fire exits to a degree that it becomes more dangerous.
i'm no expert but I'd suggest calling your local building controls officer and asking them, some are very helping!
