Garden Annexes

Garden Annexes – A Home from Home

With our bespoke design service, we will help you to create an impressive, multi-functional Garden Building that caters to your needs. Our Garden Annexes can be built with an optional kitchen, washroom, separate bedroom space and living areas.

They are a cost-effective alternative to moving house and are less disruptive than having an extension. Check out our Garden Annexe design in West Sussex, which was chosen instead of an extension for one local family.

The increasingly popular solution…

Ensuite garden rooms have becoming increasingly popular for families. Garden Annexes are a sensible way to house elderly relatives who need independence, but have the comfort of knowing their next of kin is just next door.

Growing families use annexes for older children or to offer a sleepover space to friends. With the growing popularity of websites such as Airbnb, Garden Annexes can also take the form of holiday homes.

Garden Annexes that are Personalised

Our standard packages for our Garden Annexes include neutral-coloured kitchenettes and bathrooms. We will install sleek white cabinets and plain rectangular tiles. You will be left with a fresh living space ready for you to accessorise.

If you want to individualise your annexe, then work with our team to include fixtures and fittings that reflect your style. Our skilled team can install the kitchen or bathroom range of your choice with high end appliances, fixtures and fittings.

Taking care of your Planning Application

Garden Annexes are a fantastic investment if you are looking for self-contained accommodation. However, as an annexe is deemed to be liveable accommodation, both planning permission and building regulation approval is required. You can read more guidance on planning for your annexe via the Planning Portal.

Our architectural design team can carry out the application on your behalf, and currently have a 100% success rate at achieving permission.

Garden Granny Annex
Cranleigh, Surrey

From the planning application, through to meeting building regulations and delivering a high quality finish, we managed every aspect of the garden granny annex build. This generous sized structure is the ultimate guest living space. The corner bi-fold doors are a fantastic feature that connect the annex to the garden and surrounding decking seamlessly. We have used a combination of composite and fibre-cement cladding which add textures and colour to the low-maintenance exterior.
