Hi everyone, We are considering converting our IP (Ballarat) from a 5x1 (with only two bedrooms having a BIR) into a 4x2 (with 2 bedrooms having a BIR and 2 having a WIR) Essentially there are three bedrooms all to the left of the hallway (sorry that's a terrible description- refer the rough plan) and we are considering the possibility of converting the second bedroom into a bathroom (either accessible to both bedrooms either side or just to one bathroom depending on space) and two small walk in robes/ built in robes Some questions: - is a 4x2 generally worth more (on paper) than a 5x1? We would ultimately aim to have the house re-valued after the conversion to pull equity. - what is the minimum size you could have for a functional BIR/ WIR? - are there are minimum sizes for doors to either BIR or bathrooms? - would we need council approval for this? - is a 2.8 x 3.3m room big enough for this? - y ou can see on the plan that there is an old in- filled fire place. we could look to demolish this (if possible) or incorporate into the bathroom if not too small) - any ideas of a rough costs? We would manage it ourselves and just get contractors where required. This includes us buying supplies and paying the contractor to complete labour (which we did for our recent kitchen reno) Proposed below and would appreciate any input (I could be way off!): - extending pipes/ hot water (could be done under the house so should be fairly easy I would imagine? $1,500 - converting bedroom into bathroom and two robes including adding three internal walls, three doors, filling an existing door $2,500 - waterproofing and tiling bathroom $2,000 - bathroom fixtures and fittings $2,000 - miscellaneous $2,000 total: $10,000 What am I missing? Thanks so much in advance !
