I'm just kicking off my garage conversion (hopefully posting some initial pictures very soon), and I'm currently trying to get my head around all the building regulations so I can deliver a building notice to my local authority. However, in their guidance literature (and confirmed by a chap a spoke to in the dept) they state that the garage conversion must have an alternate "means of escape", and they basically describe a window. I'd rather not put a window in if I can get away it, and the other garage conversions I've seen on the forum don't appear to have windows at all. Has anyone else encountered this issue? Just to give you the whole picture, I'm sealing up the main garage door with a wall, just leaving an internal door into the garage via the kitchen. Cheers v.f.
