Christmas is a time of year for the whole family to get together and enjoy the company of close and extended family, some great food and maybe a little tipple too. If you have been considering the purchase of a Granny Annexe, there is no better time than now to discuss the idea of a lovely new Granny Annexe home with the family.
For years now, we have been helping many families come together with the addition of warm, cosy, functional and beautiful new annexes to their family property. These annexes allow families to move their loved ones, young and old, closer to the family unit helping them feel more secure, together, and happy, whilst assisting in retaining a substantial level of independence. We cannot argue about the difficulty that comes with moving out from a beloved home but we can provide a perfect new home that fits your needs and requirements. Granny Annexe provides a variety of choices for a new Granny Annexe home and the option of a bespoke project. Please see our prices page to see our range of annexes and click the images for more information and an exact description of what is included. Visit our case studies page to see some completed projects, where we also have video walkthroughs and some interviews with some of our happy customers.
There are many benefits of moving closer to the family unit some of those being, having more time to spend with family, building stronger bonds and increasing social activity. It also means that there is always someone close by in case of emergency, with the added benefit of having your own space, meaning that you won’t feel like you are living on top of each other.
We are able to provide a quick build time, from when the spade hits the ground to the last coat of paint, this can all be completed within a couple of months, meaning little disruption at your property.

Many families in the UK are finding themselves in the position of caring for ageing parents or dependent family members and this is on the rise due to an ageing population. There are various avenues to explore when it comes to caring for loved ones, and many of these results in a loss of independence. At Granny Annexe we are able to offer an alternative solution which enables them to both retain a high level of independence as well as staying close to the family.
The average cost of a residential care home reaches into the realms of £120k (based on a two-and-a-half year stay). That’s a fairly high price tag that few can afford.
A Granny Annexe provides a new home for a family member and an investment for your property. Many of our customers will consider selling their current property to fund a Granny Annexe project at a family member’s home, often leaving them with funds for their future financial security and enjoyment. Our annexes range from £55,000 – £100,000 upwards and often add significant value to the property.
For those without the option of selling a property, we have now teamed up with Pegasus to be able to provide our customers with an option for financing their projects. By using our advertised pricing or, if you have already arranged a site visit and received a quotation. You can enter the overall cost on the Pegasus website and it will calculate your monthly repayments this will vary dependent on the cost of the annexe and the duration of the loan you require.
The wonderful thing about a Granny Annexe is that it allows families to remain close and be actively involved in day to day life. As an added benefit it provides a great investment for your property. An independent property surveyor reviewed one of our projects during the TV show ‘The Home Game’ where they assessed the new annexe and it added its value back plus an extra £10,000 – £20,000 increase.
This is no April Fool
Our annexes are not built of brick . . .
Newport Granny Annexe exterior – Read the case study here. – SIP panel structure with decorative brick slips & neutral coloured render
So what are our annexes built from?: Structurally Insulated Panels
A Structurally Insulated Panel (SIPs) System, is one of the highest calibre of construction methods available, and certainly the best choice for garden rooms. The build method has distinct advantages over timber frame building systems, and all other log cabin/garden shed construction methods.
What are the key benefits of SIPs?
- The building is manufactured off-site and “flat-pack” garden room is delivered ready for quick and efficient construction.
- Minimal requirement for heating as high insulating properties provide incredibly low U values, down to 0.11w/m2K.
What are SIPs?
SIPs are formed using two sheets of Orientated Strand Board (OSB), sandwiching a rigid core of expanded polystyrene or injected polyurethane. The SIP panel is shown below in a diagram which demonstrates a full cross section of our building, both wall and flooring.
Do SIPs Cost More?
We manufacture all the Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) for our Garden Lodges, Garden Offices and Garden Studios in-house at our factory in Bedfordshire, where they are distributed all over the UK. This allows us to reduce costs and offer premium buildings at unbeatable prices.
Where are SIP panels used?
SIPs are used widely within the construction industry for many types of buildings, and are becoming more popular as people become aware of their distinct advantages.
Building with SIPs offer many environmentally friendly advantages, below are just some of the benefits of SIPS Garden Buildings:
- According to online reports, structurally insulated panels are 15 times more insulated than concrete.
- Both OSB and polyurethane materials could be recycled.
- The materials SIPs are made from are usually free from CFC’s and HCFC’s.
- SIPs have a o-zone depletion rating of zero.
- Minimal cold bridging and high insulation rating – keeping you warm in the winter and cooler in the summer months.
