Garage Conversions

Here at DKM Developments Ltd we are proud to have created useful spaces from previously cluttered and unused garages.

We have created gym rooms, home offices, ‘man caves’ and multimedia rooms for older children.

Using a build technique which ensures that the new space is damp free and fully thermally insulated the space we are then able to give our clients flexibility to use the space as they choose.

Build technique.

First we line the walls and the floor with a breathable and damp proof membrane. This creates a sealed internal space which is then built in.

The internal walls and floor are formed from pressure treated timber studwork. This is attached to the outside damp proof membrane to form a breathable, damp proof membrane with structural integrity.

The studs and floor are then insulated with 100mm celotex insulation giving excellent heat energy savings. At this point any electrics, plumbing, heating and wastes are installed.

Next we line the inside of the studs and floor with tyvek housewrap to ensure that the structure is fully damp proofed.

The floor is then fitted with 22mm caberfloor boards and the walls with 12.5mm vapour check plaster board. Joints are caulked and scrimmed and plaster skimmed ready for decorating.

Once decorated, skirting boards, architraves and window boards are fitted.

The room is then ready for final flooring. To date we have fitted vinyl, karndean, laminate and tiles.

After this any final fix electrical, heating and plumbing work is carried out and the room is ready for use.
