Granny annexes are not just for Grandma any more. Families are finding that downsizing to free up equity in the living years makes good financial sense for them & their family more than ever before.
It’s difficult to find a property in the right location at the right price with a large garden, so most of our annexe customers have an annexe for Mum, Dad (or both) built in the back garden.
It can quickly become one of the most valuable assets a family could ever own in these unpredictable times.
We understand this isn’t for everyone. But if you are one of the exclusive “club” of annexe owners in the UK today and this is something you really want to do, we can help you every step of the way to design & build a “real little home at the bottom of the garden.”

Whether it’s a Householder Planning Application, A Caravan Act Application or a Dual Application (both together) We’ll Handle This For You. Rest Assured Our Success Rate is Very High.
Our preferred route for planning would be through the Householders Planning application route however this is not always the best or most straight forward route for garden annexes.
