The family wanted a Granny Annexe so that their 86 year old Grandmother, who has dementia, can be closer to the family so that they could provide care for her deteriorating condition.
Care, Elderly Relatives
Project – Granny Annexe Suffolk
After much thought and consideration, The family decided that a Granny Annexe would be the best option to care for their elderly Grandmother, who has dementia and mobility issues. The family made around 4 amendments to their original design, and once they were happy Granny Annexe put forward a planning application for the customer which took around 8-10 weeks. The 39.85m2 Granny Annexe was built in just 4 weeks and included one double bedroom, an en-suite wet room plus an open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area.
The Granny Annexe was clad in black feather edge boarding with 450mm high brick slips to bottom of the garden building, which fit into the surrounding barns within the country side area. Handrails and wide access doorways were also considered in the design of the Granny Annexe, which would also help with any mobility issues the Grandmother may have.
Our Granny Annexe prices include everything from the groundworks and foundations, through to the internal decoration, flooring and lighting – we also lay the armoured cable for the electricity and fit a SaniPro system for the sewage. They are built using structurally insulated panels (SIPs), which means the Granny Annexe is highly insulated, keeping heating bills to under £250 per year.
