    Conservatory conversion


    We have a 3.5m x 3.5m conservatory on the back of our house, that is useless in both the summer & winter months.

    The footings are 600mm deep, with a double skin dwarf wall of 12 courses of brick (block inner skin).

    My question is, can I remove the conservatory frame, glass and poly carb roof etc, and build an insulated timber frame, clad in hardiplank (or similar), with a tiled roof.

    It would have one big window on the front, and French doors in the same location as they are now.

    The internal doors into the house are external grade uPVC French doors.

    We just want a space that can be used more of the year than the useless conservatory can at the moment!!

    "Can't see why not. Though checking with your local planning Dept. may be wise."
