Yes, but only if it’s a simple conversion that doesn’t require much alteration and you have all the necessary tools. Should your garage conversion need more complex tasks like reinforcing the foundation, putting up partition walls, installing plumbing and adding more wiring, you’re better off hiring an expert. Don’t forget that any demo or remodelling work needs a permit, and they must comply with building codes - so why not hire a Tasker?
An in-law suite is a small living space much like a small apartment. Depending on their purpose and who occupies them, In-law suites can go by other names like Ohana suite, secondary suite, granny pod or granny flat. It’s just another term for the guest house on your property or attached to your single-family home where your in-laws, other family members or friends can stay.
This can take at least a week to at most a couple of months, depending on the scope and scale of the job. Garage conversions without much remodelling can take shorter times. But if your garage conversion needs new foundations, you’ll have to allow for a couple of days for the concrete to dry along with all the time it takes to do the other tasks. Ask your Tasker for an estimate of your timetable.
A permit is needed on a case-to-case basis. Regulations on garage conversions can vary from state to state and council to council, but if your garage conversion involves altering the structure, a permit is usually required. Before you begin any work on your conversion, consult your architect or designer, then have the design and floor plans looked over by your local council.
Yes, for as long as it doesn’t infringe upon or reduce your garden’s total square footage. Your garage conversion also shouldn’t overlook your main home and cause privacy issues between occupants. If constructed well and given a lovely interior, your garage conversion can add as much as 30 per cent to your home if you put it on the market!
It sure can! Just make sure that your local council will allow it. Please ensure that you can park your car on your property without a garage or on the street. If you get permission to convert your garage into an in-law suite or guest house, then take on renters; you can make as much as 27 per cent of your home’s total value in rental income.
Garage conversion includes all the tasks and activities necessary to transform your garage into a room or area that can provide additional living space. You can use this service to convert what is used to store your cars or various odds and ends into a bedroom, family room, music room, or lounge - the possibilities are limited only by the space, creativity, and budget.
Garage conversion specialists can assist you in coming up with a suitable design for your garage, get the necessary materials, tools and hire the labour to execute the design.
Some Taskers can draw up all the possible design options if you don't have a design ready. After inspecting the site and taking all the necessary measurements, your Tasker can talk to you about what you want from the garage conversion and provide you with the appropriate garage conversion floor plans.
Do you need to see all the possibilities of your garage conversion? Your Tasker may design options that match your needs and provide several options for as long as time and budget allow. Should you lack any permits or other essential documents from your local council, some Taskers can get these for you upon request.
Your Tasker may find it more cost-efficient to demolish any damaged walls or floors. Once the permits are secured, and the team of garage builders are ready, your Tasker and the garage builders can take old structures apart; this can include removing unnecessary walls, insulation, the garage door and automatic garage door assembly.
You may want to hire another team of specialists to clear the debris after completing demolition. Now that you must park your car elsewhere, consider hiring someone to install a new security system or make sure the existing alarm works in your vehicle.
Your Tasker can have the builders reinforce or lay down new foundations as necessary, as when your garage is built on clay soil and adjacent to your home. They can have fresh concrete poured into the appropriate areas and amounts. This can create new and more sound foundations or reinforce existing ones. Your garage builders then let the concrete dry for 1 to 2 days.
If new foundations were installed then dried and set, your Tasker could have new flooring put in. Working from the ground up, they can install underfloor heating systems then finish with tiles or floor planks.
Garage builders can construct and place new partition walls, install frames, install the insulation and conceal them with new wall panels. Your hired Tasker can have any new windows and doors installed as well.
Your Tasker can hire someone to install new wiring, as well as employ a specialist to install any plumbing for a new kitchen, bathroom or both. They can oversee the work and ensure that the installation is up to code and meets industry and safety standards.

We are looking to convert our garage into a useable space (think rumpus room or spare bedroom) and need drafting (some design work), plans drawn up and submitted to the council for approval. Assistance with engineering and tradesperson quotes highly regarded. Mostly this will require removal and replacement of automatic garage door to be replaced with a sliding door or equivalent. A hole knocked through into the loungeroom, lintel installed and some kind of door installed between loungeroom and garage. Garage is currently plastered 3/4 way around, with 1 wall bare brick that will required insulations and plaster work. Looking for quotes at this stage before going ahead and my task price is set low purely to get some responses. Happy to reply with photos or to answer questions. Keen to get this started, submitted to council and built ASAP (within reason, given Melbourne being on lockdown etc). Cheers.
