Hi everyone, I’m in the process of planning a garage conversion on our property, just for clarification its a 4 bed detached home, all exterior walls including garage are cavity walls.
Currently our garage flooring sits around 180mm below that of the floor in the hall which is adjacent to it, the doorway into the garage will be entering in from this hallway and I would prefer if the garage floor was level with this hallway floor (though from reading building reg’s, it doesn’t appear to matter if there is a step down in to the garage)
Is there a way of raising the floor to this level with possibly introducing a 2″x 6″ (38mm x 140mm) framework sitting atop a solid or liquid damp proof membrane straight on top of the existing concrete garage floor, with kingspan or similar insulation between the beams, then topping this framework with a solid 30mm wooden floor
Does this sound acceptable? the wording on the planning portal website is whats led me to this question as on one hand it makes it sound like the above is acceptable, and on the other hand there is a part where it mentions there must be a 150mm void between the floor and the beams.
any help on this mater would be greatly appreciated
p.s this is my first post, please be gentle with me!!
