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 Floor Plan
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.
