Building your granny annexe is a process that takes place with minimum disruption to your daily routine. We’re aware that any construction work causes some upheaval, so to reduce your stress levels, we hope the following will give you peace of mind.
In as little as 3-4 weeks, your annexe will be built, decorated and finished, with all the finishes touches applied and is ready to move in to. We take care of all the painting and decorating, any last minute tweaks and everything is thoroughly cleaned before we hand over the keys to you.
This is how it is done:
The heavy work begins. We’ll carry out all the digging and install the foundations and all drainage. We’ll also construct the building shell and the roof.
Time to get on with the interior. The exterior paneling goes on and then we undertake the initial electrics,plumbing and complete the plastering.
The things that make a house a home. Kitchens, showers, bedrooms are installed and decorated by our team of interior specialists.
