Welcome to Contemporary Log Living!

Our Most Popular Style Annexe, The CLL Contemporary

Sometimes we feel like the luckiest people in the world because we get to meet great people, with great stories to share about WHY building an annexe is going to make ALL the difference to them.

Annexes are the perfect solution for affordable residential style accommodation for elderly parents, young independents, first time buyers or students who have very smart parents that worked out the cost of university was about the same price as an annexe but without all the debt. (The video on the right was kindly supplied by our customers who did exactly that for their daughter)

Annexes, although built as a mobile home are nothing like Park Homes or those awful cold caravan park style mobile homes that are not suitable for year round living.

They are extremely well insulated and have the feel of a modern apartment inside, plus you have FULL creative licence when it comes to designing your kitchen and bathroom!


How Contemporary Log Living Began ...

Contemporary Log Living began when Pete & Diane Cossie were part of the sales and marketing team at the Ideal Home Show 2011.

We completely fell in love with the concept of open plan living and could see that the UK consumer has very little choice when it comes to self-building, large or small.

"Since then we have successfully built Log Homes and Annexes in Shropshire, Somerset, Hampshire, Cumbria, Essex, Kent, Wiltshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire, Hereford, Surrey, Wales and more.

We also have vast experience when it comes to Planning Permission because we've been involved with the building industry for over 30 years.

So when we show up for one of our free site consultations with you (and most of them are a 3 hour drive from where we are based) people are surprised to find that we just roll up, make you feel completely at ease and LISTEN to what you want us to help you build.

The personal service is something we offer and we build your annexe, cabin or home with a heart because we care.

Our claim to fame is that we were the sales and marketing team that went on to be the ONLY company EVER to have sold the Ideal Home Show show house.

It was SUCH an event that it ended up being featured on Amanda Lamb's My Flat Pack Home TV show when the TV crew followed it's journey to it's new location in Cornwall.
