Hi to all
I'm about to embark on converting one half of our double lock-up garage into a 'room' (habitable preferred). The house is 18 yrs old (we bought it 3 yrs ago). The garage is under the same roof line as the main house, gyprocked, two roller doors.
I have been speaking to the local council about habitable spaces\room for the proposed conversion and the main question cropping up is the garage concrete; whether it's habitable.
I have the house plans and how I'm interpreting it is that the garage slab is the same standard as the house (could be really wrong). There is a 100mm step-down into the garage when you enter the garage from the house.
So i guess my question is, how can I tell whether my slab is 'habitable'? What should i be looking for? I have attached House Plans and some photos. Certain parts of the plans have been blanked out for privacy reasons.
