"IHUS at Grand Designs Live London 2017"

We are teaming up again with iHUS at Grand Designs Live 2017 at London’s Excel later this month (April 29th – May 7th) and we are thrilled to be helping to launch the new iHUS Contemporary Annexe range at the show. With super green credentials this high end annexe looks set to take annexe design to a whole new level. 

If you have been following us on our Facebook page over the last few years you will have noticed that we have more than little bit of passion about everything contemporary and modern when it comes to homes, gardens and of course Granny Annexe designs.

The CLL Contemporary still brings us lots of enquiries every week with it’s cutting edge design, contemporary styling and modern open plan living style floor plan.

So when we got together with iHUS Projects last year we knew that we had a very exciting opportunity to enhance everything we do on the build side of self-building homes and annexes by joining forces with the strong manufacturing and building background of IHUS and be able to enhance the existing iHUS Annexe product range to  include a contemporary style annexe which is something they didn’t have.

So for a spectacular day out (if homes and gardens are “your thing”) and the opportunity to meet us all at Grand Designs Live and get your questions answered we cordially invite you to Grand Designs Live in London.

The Next Generation Of Annexes Is Ultra Modern

The new IHUS Contemporary Annexe

Press Release from Grand Designs Live; “Inspired by Kevin Mc Cloud’s Green Heroes for innovative and eco-friendly construction ideas, iHUS Projects Ltd are proud to launch their new iHUS super energy efficient Contemporary annexe range at this year’s Grand Designs Live Event at London’s Excel. Boasting truly green credentials, with state of the art solar power generation, storage, heating and hot water it’s virtually “off grid.” (Read the full article by clicking here.)

When it comes to building Contemporary annexes, we pride ourselves in the way we deal with all our potential customers for these highly desirable buildings that can add incredible value to your home and make it sell like a hot potato in the future.

Designed with YOU in mind, we offer purpose made annexes with superior finishes, kitchens and bathrooms, leaving you with a well insulated building that has the look and feel of a swish modern apartment.

Even though we usually build these “little homes” at the bottom of the garden for a member of the family (that is a condition of obtaining planning permission), we often find by the time we have finished the annexe, the main home owners want to move in instead!

And that’s what inspired us to create this very special range of iHUS Contemporary Annexes.

Multi-generation Living Has Never Looked Better

We hear a lot of arguments between generations about the styling of an annexe. Usually the younger ones in the conversation like the Contemporary style whereas the older generation like the more traditional, classic style. The good news is that there is no reason why you cannot compromise and have both.

Sometimes your local planning authority will recommend contemporary styling as it is modern in design and is a contrast to the existing home this can even be a consideration for Listed Buildings.

Others may consider the contemporary style with a flat roof less obtrusive to any neighbours and therefore recommend it for that purpose.

All local planning authorities will have own particular concerns which will need to be addressed but in general they are very sympathetic and understanding to the need for dependent relative accommodation and we find that planning approval for annexes is usually a positive experience.
