Self Contained Granny Annexe Garden Homes
A self-contained granny annexe in the garden is a cost-effective and quick solution to creating an extra home. Whether for an elderly relative or even a younger family member, a garden annexe can be a perfect solution to a growing modern day problem. Regrettably, more and more families are having to face the same dilemma. Because of escalating costs in the care sector and housing market, more practical solutions are required. We believe we can offer that solution.

Built to the highest standard by qualified professionals using only the best quality materials. Our buildings are designed to last a lifetime.
But, most importantly of all, is your peace of mind knowing that you are close by if required. Yet, nothing is taken away from a loved one’s independence, which is imperative too. As a result, keeping everybody happy!Get A Quote Today
Create a home in your garden
We know from personal experience how difficult things can become when a life changing event occurs. Therefore, a self-contained Granny Annexe in the garden may be the answer. It was for us!
We can help you create a real home for an older or even younger relative in your garden. And because a garden annexe is an asset it adds 5 to 15% to the value of your property. So rather than the ever-increasing expense of alternative accommodation you gain a return on your investment. Therefore, a perfect solution.
Our expertise is managing your entire project from start to finish. We deal with the local authority regarding planning permission. We also obtain any building regulation certificates that are required. In addition, to the above, see our FAQs page for further information on local authority legislation.
Garden Annexe Construction
We use the most up-to-date structural insulated panel system (SIPs) to build the annexe. The high insulation values of the panels mean that when they are used to construct the walls and roof of an annexe the overall efficiency of the building is very high. Especially relevant; the main advantage of building with SIPs is just how quickly we can get your Annexe ready to live in. Therefore, from foundations to completion, an Annexe can be built and ready to use within 2-3 weeks.

Adding Value to Your Home
A quality garden annexe adds value to your property and if you wish to sell, the sale-ability too. This is because our garden annexes are built using the same materials and building techniques used to construct a modern house. Hence, our garden annexes are designed to last. A good quality garden annexe is really an extension of the house. Furthermore, you can expect an excellent return on your investment. However, unlike a brick extension, it’s quicker, cleaner and more affordable. In short, extra space – adds value.
How Much Will A Garden Annexe Cost?
We offer a full service ‘turnkey’ project. This means everything is included in our price. Please be aware that not all granny annexe companies offer the actual connection of the services to the mains supply. Therefore, this can be a costly additional extra.
All our garden annexes are permanent buildings and comply fully with building regulations.
As an example an open plan guest room 18m2 with an en-suite costs £34,954. A 32m2 granny annexe home in the garden with kitchen, lounge-diner and separate bedroom with an en-suite starts from £58,450.

Two bedroom garden annexe case study – Northamptonshire
As a rule of thumb a Garden Annexe is usually required as a home for an elderly relative. Granny or grandad!
In this case study the opposite happened and instead of mum moving into her daughters back garden, the daughter moved into mums! Furthermore, an extra bedroom was required for the granddaughter who still lived at home.

I am absolutely thrilled to bits with my new granny pad. It was originally going to be for my daughter but when it started to take shape I decided I wanted it instead. The Green Room designed and built a lounge /kitchen on the side of an existing garage and the garage became a bedroom with en-suite. What a transformation!! A very professional service was given and first class workmanship was provided. Nothing was too much trouble for Brian and his team!! A big THANKS guys.Cath Jackson Stockport

Granny Annexe Discussed On BBC Radio 4 Womens Hour
New research commissioned by Legal & General in conjunction with the Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC), reveals the big conversations that families are having about managing and supporting elderly parents. How they are planning the right balance of support and independence so crucial to later life. The big issues include housing, health, in house support, care and well-being which is influenced both by the age of parents and how far away they live from the family. Of those surveyed, respondents were also asked to rank a list of factors that, for them, constitute their parents’ well-being. The most important was being ‘safe at home’ closely followed by ‘well cared for’ and ‘healthy and active’.
