I am wanting to convert my attached single story garage into a utility space and an office space.
In the utility space I want to put a shower but would have very little headroom once I've damp proofed and insulated the current floor. The floor is typical concrete slab. Can anyone advise if I would be able to excavate the floor in the proposed utility space then create a floating floor at depth lower than current slab? What would be needed to get it passed by building control?
Hi 110sb With luck you will be able to dig down to the depth of the existing house foundations, form a new sub floor and build retaining walls as required before forming a new suspended floor. It’s a matter of doing some exploratory digging and then agreeing with the BI how to proceed. Suggest you do this using the building notice route. Regards S
