Top Rate Garage Conversions in Timaru and Ashburton

Home, it’s where the heart is, but it’s also where the clutter piles up. And for many of us, the natural place to put it is in the garage. If you’re in need of more space, a spring clean could help you convert your garage into a more functional space, be it a TV room, kids’ games room, home office, yoga studio, or man cave.

To find out how to convert your garage into a space that’s more user friendly, get in touch with your local Refresh Renovation Consultant in Timaru and Ashburton for a free, no-obligation, consultation.

Why choose Refresh Renovations?

At Refresh, we decided there’s no need for home renovations to be stressful, over budget, and unsuccessful. In fact, we decided they should be the total opposite. An experience that’s enjoyable, stress-free, and rewarding. And our five step process sets out to do exactly that.

The first step is a free, no obligation, consultation with your local Renovation Consultant. This is an opportunity for you to discuss your renovation ideas and goals. They’ll share their knowledge and expertise, outline a timeframe, and advise you on the key things you need to consider, such as services required and budget.

If you’re happy to proceed, they’ll go ahead and prepare concept plans, a working project timeline, and a fixed quote accurate to your project. Once you’ve signed it all, construction will begin, but not a moment before.

During the construction phase, your local Renovation Consultant will remain your single point of contact, liaising with any trades required for the job, scheduling them to be on site, and keeping you informed along the way. If you need council consent for your project they’ll sort that too. It’s all part of our commitment to change the way the world renovates and deliver you a stress-free and enjoyable project, from concept to completion.

What garage conversion ideas are popular in Timaru and Ashburton?

One of the most popular garage conversion ideas among homeowners in Timaru and Ashburton is converting your garage into a granny flat. Creating extra space for friends and family to stay, and a means to secure extra income in your home, has meant garage transformations that result in a self-contained space are extremely desirable, not just to homeowners but to buyers as well.

If you’re considering converting your garage into a self-contained flat, whether it’s to list on Airbnb or to rent out full time, you can expect council consent to be needed. Your local Timaru and Ashburton Renovation Consultant will help with that. They’ll also be able to advise you on how best to achieve a successful garage conversion outcome. This might include the essentials, such as a kitchenette, shower over a bath, neutral colour palette throughout, and ways to make a small space seem much bigger.

What can I convert my garage into?

If you’ve been looking at your garage and only seeing a place that’s accumulating storage, look again. A garage is a sizeable area of your home that has great potential. Not only can you convert your garage into a granny flat, you can also undergo a garage conversion with a loft, creating more space for teens to hang out.

If it’s extra living space you’re after, consider converting your garage into a games room, rumpus room, kids’ TV lounge, or home office. Or, if the cold winter Timaru and Ashburton mornings have you staying in bed rather than going to the gym, why not convert your garage into an exercise space. For many homeowners, it’s the ideal room in the house to have as a home gym or yoga studio.

How much does a garage conversion cost in Timaru and Ashburton?

While we’d like to be able to tell you what the average cost of a garage conversion is, the truth is we know every project is different, so a different cost is needed every time. That’s why our local Renovation Consultants in Timaru and Ashburton will give you a fixed quote accurate to your project.

Down in Queenstown, one homeowner turned their cold garage into a cosy home office at Jack’s Point. In just two weeks, and at a cost of $16,000, this space became a thoughtfully curated home office complete with custom joinery.

Another Queenstown garage got a new lease of life as a two-bedroom sleepout with space for up to six people. After seven and a half months and at a cost of $152,000, the garage has been transformed with an entry deck that basks in sunlight and a kitchen window that provides amazing views of the Shotover Gorge. These homeowners now have a space for friends and family to stay, as well as a secondary income stream. 

*Costs are rough estimates and are subject to change. For a fixed-quote accurate to your specific project, please consult your local Refresh Renovation Consultant.

Your Style,
Your Budget,
Our Expertise

Refresh®’s process supports a bespoke design and build: a renovation tailored to your lifestyle requirements and taste. Your local Garage Conversion renovation consultant will manage every aspect for you - working to keep everything on track.

Step 1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

The first thing your Garage Conversion renovation consultant will want to know is what it is that you want to achieve through your home renovation. In this initial consultation, you can throw all of your ideas on the table - your consultant will then tailor them to your property and budget.

Step 2

Concept and Feasibility

With a clear understanding of your renovation goals, your Garage Conversion consultant can arrange for an architectural concept to be drawn up. This allows your Garage Conversion consultant to assess whether or not your ideas are feasible, and allows you to point out any changes you would like in the design - before any work begins.

Step 3

Working Drawings and Costing

Next, working drawings will be developed. These will take into account the engineering, structural, design and aesthetic decisions you have made. If you would like to make any further changes, now is the time to do so. From there, your Garage Conversion consultant will present you with a fixed-quote as well as a contract.

Step 4

Build / Construction Stage

Finally, you get to witness your project transition from the page to your property! Every aspect of the build will be managed for you, allowing you to carry on with your everyday life. Your Garage Conversion consultant will do everything in their power to keep your project on schedule so that it can be completed within a set timeframe and budget.

Step 5

Your Finished Renovation

The final stage is for your local Garage Conversion consultant to ensure that all Council documentation is completed and you have the necessary Code of Compliance documentation. Congratulations – your renovation is complete!
