Granny Annexe Recently Completed in Wiltshire

We’ve recently finished building a Granny Annexe in Wiltshire for the Luker family, who needed a Granny Annexe so that their elderly mother could live closer and be cared for easily by other family members. The Luker family chose a pitched roof, rendered Granny Annexe, complete with a large bedroom, which fit a double bed and plenty of storage.

The spacious L-shape kitchen includes our standard style of white units with a black laminate worktop. We also provide an electric oven, stainless steel four ring hob, including a brushed chrome, modern extractor fan. The compact bathroom features a double shower, chrome heated towel rail, white vanity unit with hand basin and toilet.

Black Mini Stonewold tiles lined the pitched roof, where we also fitted black plastic rainwater guttering to the exterior and then rendered the Granny Annexe in cream, fire retardant render and the corners were lined with brick quoins. Two electric wall heaters were fitted in the lounge and bedroom, which come as standard with all of our Granny Annexes.

As our Granny Annexes are built using 100mm thick structurally insulated panels (SIPs), it means that they are extremely insulated and keep warm in the winter and cooler in the summer months. Our UPVC windows and door frames with double glazed glass are also very well insulated and strong.

L-shape Granny Annexe built in Ealing, London

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.

Western Red Cedar Granny Annexe in Cambridgeshire

We have just finished a brand new Granny Annexe in Cambridgeshire, but this time it was clad in natural Western Red Cedar timber panels. Fitting in with its beautiful surroundings, the pitched roof Granny Annexe measures 11m x 4.50m and is 3.80m in height.

The spacious Granny Annexe was designed to have separate rooms instead of an open plan design. There is a kitchen, large lounge, bathroom complete with bath and shower, plus a bedroom with a magnificent view and a wall of wardrobes for extra storage.

When we visited the new Granny Annexe it was moving day so it was full of boxes, but we could see how much space the customer had for all of their belongings. Details wise, the customer chose light golden oak UPVC windows and door frames, natural oak laminate flooring and chrome light and wall fittings.

We looked after all aspects of the build, right from the ground works and foundations, right through to construction, all materials, glazing, decoration and laminate flooring. We also installed all electrics and lighting and the plumbing.

Granny Annexe with large bathroom and a bath

We often get asked whether our Granny Annexes can be designed with bath tubs installed, as most of our garden buildings tend to feature shower rooms. The answer is simply, yes.

Our standard bathroom suites are white gloss with chrome handles, which are easy to keep clean and look modern. We can also include baths for people with mobility issues or for people who are disabled. Walk in baths with a side door to get in and out of the bath are also available too, however this design isn’t within our standard range.

Our baths have mixer taps and fixed panel and gloss white Aqua panels. An electric shower can also be fitted above the bath onto the wall, for a shower/bath combo. Other standard features within our bathrooms are a W/C, wash hand basin with vanity unit and a heated chrome, ladder style towel rail.

Wall rails and grab rails can be installed in the bathroom to aid mobility and help people to get in and out of the bath or shower easily – shower seats can also be fitted too. We have also installed bath lifts for previous customers too, which enable you to be lowered into the bath by using a fabric band.

We recommend purchasing the following products from a reputable supplier to also help with moving in and out of the bath. These include items like leg lifters, transfer benches and bath seats. Our bathrooms are bespoke to your needs, so if you have a specific requirement, please don’t hesitate to let your Surveyor know during your site survey visit.

Age UK’s #BigKnit

Today the woolly hats made by Granny Annexe team are being posted to the Innocent Drinks Big Knit campaign1. The Big Knit (#BigKnit) is aid of Age UK which is the UK’s largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life2.

We love this campaign, it is a fun way to bring awareness of housing for the elderly, an issue which is at the heart of our business.

Age UK are using the Big Knit campaign to highlight the poor housing conditions of the elderly in the UK, detailed in Age UK’s ‘Housing in later life’. The report makes for unsettling reading, Age UK estimates that 1.7 million older people in the UK can’t afford to heat their homes, and over a third (36%) of older people in the UK say they live mainly in one room to save money.

It is so sad to read about this, whilst knowing our Granny Annexes offer a practical solution to keep the elderly warm in the winter. Our SIP panel buildings keep their residents warm and cosy all year round with minimal requirement for heating, because they are incredibly energy efficient3.

We are enjoying making little hats for Innocent Drinks and we hope it helps to bring awareness to this issue.

Red Cedar Granny Annexe built in Kent

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.
