New Granny Annexe project in Swindon

Another fantastic build completed, this time for a customer in Swindon. The family had recently decided to sell their own and their parent’s property, in order to pool resources and buy a larger plot with enough room to build an annexe in the grounds.

This can be a great solution for people who would like to build an annexe, but find that neither property has the required land in order to do so.

The family’s main motivation was to enable them to spend more time together as a family and to provide extra care and support as their parents reached an older age.

In order to facilitate the required accommodation, we designed a building that incorporated a large double bedroom, separate study area overlooking the garden and a large open plan living and kitchen area.




An important consideration when we build any garden building is the necessity to get as much light as possible into the building to create an airy and spacious building. In order to create this feeling of light and space, large double width French doors and a glazed gable end allow the sunlight to flood in meaning that the living room receives plenty of light all year round. A more unusual feature of this build was the addition of a study area. We were able to create a great little space to work from, that overlooks the garden, the perfect place to take care of emails or to enjoy a good book. We can also incorporate essential features for something more bespoke like a study, such as internet connection, a built-in desk or shelving and air conditioning for the summer.

At Granny Annexe we are always very happy to design our buildings to meet your exact requirements. We can add rooms such as studies, walk-in wardrobes, separate kitchens or spare rooms. Really the options are only limited to the space you have. Sometimes consideration needs to be taken into account regarding planning permission when building a 2 bedroom annexe. Planning authorities will need to see a legitimate reason for building 2 bedrooms such as there being 2 people using the annexe, or for medical reasons.

We are able to take care of the whole planning process for you, whichever building you choose to go ahead with and will be able to advise you on which style and size we think would be most suitable, while also taking into consideration the planning restraints and obligations that might need to be fulfilled.

Project Based In Warwickshire

When asked if we could build a home for an elderly gentleman in Warwickshire we were thrilled to help.  A bespoke garden property provided an ideal solution for the family – allowing him to maintain independence while at the same time benefiting from having family nearby to provide assistance if needed and to allow the family to stay close together.

The plot of land was set in a village location and needed to remain in keeping with the local area. A stable block at the end of garden added an extra dimension to the build with the Granny Annexe being built just in front, so the new building was designed to sympathetically work with these surroundings.

One of the key features in terms of design was to create a building with a light open-plan feeling, while still maintaining a cosiness for the winter months. To facilitate this the home was built with an airy pitched roof allowing for an open plan kitchen living space with expansive 4 metre wide glazing looking onto the garden, French doors helped provide easy access.

A bespoke kitchen was added with modern shaker style units with brushed stainless steel handles.

To complete the build a generous tiled shower room with electric shower, glass shower screen and WC were also installed.
