We converted our double garage into a flatlet for my father to live in.
My father-in-law and I did the majority of the work, starting with chipping the old plaster off the walls and making space for three new windows and the electrics.

We had sub-contractors come in to do the brickwork; they built a wall for the bathroom and bricked up the garage door.

We repurposed windows and cottage pane doors; we also sanded and repainted them .

We plastered and painted the walls. The sub-contractor used RhinoLite on the ceilings; we painted the ceilings and installed the cornices.

I tiled the bathroom and installed the plumbing, sanitary ware and accessories.

Magna Kitchens installed the kitchen and we put together the bedroom cupboard.

I put in all the electrics, downlights and Kitchen Panel Lights (My father’s LED products).

All the furniture is spare furniture that we already had in our home.
