The Day family chose to build a Granny Annexe in the grounds of their home so that their mother could live independently, but also be on call if she required care or help. With chronic arthritis, the mothers condition was only getting worse, so her family were needed much more around her.
The 8.55m x 4.70m Granny Annexe needed to be warm, accessible and homely but also modern, so that the garden building fit in with its surroundings. Once planning permission was granted by their Local Planning Authority, the project was booked into our build schedule to begin construction 4 weeks later.
The Granny Annexe design has an open plan living room with a kitchen and dining area. Contemporary features such as 2 bi-folding doors and a large roof light bring in lots of natural light and wonderful views of the garden.
We looked after all aspects of the build, from the planning permission application through to the foundations, construction, flooring and even supplying the kitchen and a walk in bath. The flat roof Granny Annexe was painted in matt white emulsion and the skirting boards were painted in white gloss.
As standard, other features such as a heated towel rail, heat and smoke detectors, extractor fans and 2 electric heaters were all included in the total cost. Overall the Day family thought all aspects of our service, price, customer service and installation were great and would definitely recommend us to their friends and family.

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.
