With house prices showing no signs of dropping, and a whole generation of people unable to get on the property ladder, one Bedfordshire company has come up with an intriguing solution. Granny Annexe specialises in building small, deluxe apartments completely decorated that feature a kitchen, bathroom & lounge-diner from £34,000, and all in just 4 weeks!
Every granny annexe is tailored and built to your specifications and design, and there are four pricing bands to choose from. You can opt for a single annexe for £33,350, which includes a single bedroom, a shower room/WC, kitchenette and living room/diner. The next band is a double annexe, which comes complete with a double bedroom, a separate kitchen, shower and WC. The deluxe annexe has bigger dimensions and with the bespoke, you design the rooms and the layouts.
With each annexe you have a choice between different styles to individualise your property, such as roofing tiles or synthetic rubber, timber cladding or brick for the construction, internal and external wall colours, lighting which includes fluorescent, directional or spots, windows and door frames, flooring options and much more. Literally every aspect of the build can be controlled, adapted and designed by you.
The Granny Annexe can even help you with planning permission, so if even if you have never dealt with local councils and housing departments, they can guide you on every aspect of this build.
The process starts with Granny Annexe appointing a project manager for your build, and having this single point of contact means that any problems or decisions you want to make are always dealt with by the same person. This person will manage your build from start to completion and the PM’s at Granny Annexe are all friendly, knowledgeable and efficient, and more importantly – accessible. You will always be kept informed of key dates and other important information to ensure a smooth installation and stress free experience with minimum disruption.
The PM will talk you through the building process, which starts off with the groundwork. How this is carried out will depend on the condition of your soil, as to whether there will be a installation of a solid concrete slab, or concrete pile foundations. Once this is competed the building shell and the roof will go up.
The next step is to work on the interior, by putting on the cladding, installing the electrics and finishing the plastering.
Finally the finishing touches are added; the flooring and skirting boards, the painting and decorating and any snagging problems.
And for those who are concerned about their carbon footprint, Granny Annexe is pleased to confirm that they use fully insulated structurally insulated panel systems (SIPs) which are super insulated and cut down on heating and energy bills. Using SIPs is also is an eco-friendly form of construction, thereby reducing the carbon footprint of the actual construction.
To date, Granny Annexe have built over 1,000 properties in the UK, and promise that your build will be completed with as little disruption as possible, and built, decorated and finished in as little as 3-4 weeks.
