In spring 2014, The Oughton family got in touch with us to book a free site survey appointment with one of our Surveyors. We visited the family and discussed our services and showed them our vast portfolio of previous Granny Annexe projects.
A couple of 3D designs later, the Oughton family were happy with their proposed floor layout and exterior design, choosing a neat L-shaped, white rendered, cottage-style Granny Annexe. The Oughton family also chose to view an existing Granny Annexe about 30 minutes away from their home. This gave them an idea of how their finished Annexe would look like and also to see our superb build quality.
We looked after the planning permission application on behalf of the customer, which costs an additional £1,672. This price includes all elevation drawings, location plans, full planning commentary and application, plus dealing with your Local Planning Authority (LPA) on your behalf until the final decision is made.
8 weeks later, planning permission was granted for the 48.5m2 sized Granny Annexe, where the construction began 3 weeks later. The customer cleared the garden and made sure that the ground was level, so that stage 1 of the build could begin. Our professional Granny Annexe build team prepared the concrete pad foundations, ready for the main shell of the Granny Annexe to be constructed.
In around a week’s time, the Granny Annexe was water tight on the windows and doors being installed. This means the build team could focus on tiling the roof, adding black plastic rainwater guttering. During this time, we also laid the armoured cable and pipework to connect the electricity and water from the main home.
Our qualified electricians then undertook the initial internal wiring work and fit all chrome light switches and pendant lighting, as well as the electric underfloor heating and electric opening Velux windows, which the customer chose during their site survey. The laminate flooring was also fitted, as well as the kitchen and bathroom suite.
Overall, the customer was extremely happy and couldn’t wait to move her belongings into the Granny Annexe, as well as buying all of her new furniture and gadgets to go into the kitchen.
