At Granny Annexe, we are always adapting and evolving the design of our buildings. We specialise in creating bespoke buildings that are designed around the needs and requirements of each customer. No two gardens or people are the same and we recognise that in the annexes we construct.
In order to provide even more versatility, we have introduced a brand new range of buildings, called our Annexe Extensions range. Built to the same very high standards as our normal annexes, extensions can provide a number of advantages.
Sometimes on rare occasions, we have found some people have been denied planning permission for a normal annexe in the garden. This might be due to a number of reasons, such as neighbour’s concerns, being in a conservation area or not having a large enough garden. An annexe extension has the chance of meeting planning regulation more easily, and in some cases might be built under permitted development.
All of our annexe extensions are flat-roofed, single storey buildings, constructed using the same high performing energy efficient ‘SIP’ (structurally-insulated-panel) construction technique. With our complete turnkey service, you can save time and money. You will not have to deal with planning authorities, architects or builders, instead we will take care of everything for you from the planning stages to handing you the keys.
Due to our modular construction techniques, you can also take advantage of our rapid construction, with most buildings being completed in 5 – 7 weeks. Building works can be disruptive and stressful, we try to minimise this as much as possible with a process we have developed an honed over a number of years. Part of the construction process takes place off-site in our workshops in Bedfordshire. We then transport the SIP panels to your home and begin construction once all foundations and ground works are completed. This allows for a fast turnaround offering you a smooth and stress-free building process.
Independent living in the heart of the family
Despite being attached to the main home, our annexe extensions still offer the same level of independent living as our standard annexes. We have designed both the main house and the extension to have it’s own individual access to the garden, perfect for independent living.
Example 1 – The Studio Annexe Extension
Our studio extension is perfect for those with a smaller garden and is designed especially for an attached property. The clever design allows for an open plan living space, with a separate deluxe shower room and a bedroom tucked away from the living room. Large French doors open into the garden, flooding the extension with light, providing wonderful views of the garden.
Interior space is arranged in order to maximise the space available, with an open plan feel, that connects the main living area to the garden, with a studio bed area tucked around the corner. Separate access for both the annexe and the main house is a key feature of all our extensions in order to provide an independent living solution, whilst still being connected to the main home.
WxDxH 4.0m x 6.0m x 3.08m
External Area 24m2

Example 2 – The double bedroom Annexe Extension
Our larger double bedroom extension has been designed as a suitable size and layout for a detached property and boasts a generous 32m2 external area. This provides space for an open plan living room, with a separate double bedroom and a deluxe shower room. Large French doors are a great feature for increasing the feeling of space and light. and allows for excellent flow between your outdoor and indoor spaces.
Our layout can be configured in a number of ways in order to meet your own requirements. Below is an example of a suitable floor plan that creates a light-filled open plan living space, with separate access to the garden.
