Carport to Garage conversion

7 years ago
Hi Everyone,

Our house has a carport that is attached to the house on one side and butts up next to the brick wall of our neighbours garage. If we wanted to extend it slightly forward (but not past the front of the house) and then install a nice metal cladding type door where do we need to start?

I'm guessing a call to council to see if I need a planning/building permit? The house was built in the early 80's so I doubt there's any overlays on the property. Should I go to an architect or a building designer (we do plan on updating the facade sometime in the future also) or straight to a garage door installer? Has anyone else done this? Our council is Moonee Valley in case that helps!
Looking forward to reading some replies!
