Turnkey Service: Taking Care of Everything

We offer a complete turnkey service to our customers that includes everything you need to plan, design and build a custom granny annexe or garden lodge.

"Custom Annexe"

Time spent now talking your project through with one of our custom annexe specialists may save you money, frustration and disappointment further down the line.

It is a complex process that should be handled by experts in their field, such as ourselves, and the best thing about our turnkey service is that we take care of everything for you from start to finish.

Free Onsite Consultation

If you are thinking about building annexe or lodge in your garden soon, we highly recommend booking a free onsite consultation with one of our custom annexe specialists as your first step.

Our experience counts when it comes to planning & designing your annexe. We’ll answer any questions you may have about the construction of your annexe and advise you on how we will connect mains water, electricity & sewerage to your garden annexe or lodge.

Where we really excel is when it comes to obtaining permission from your Local Planning Authority to actually build your annexe.

It’s a crucial step that requires a specialist to ensure your best chance of success.

L-Shaped Granny Annexe
We’ll Apply For Permission To Build Your Custom Granny Annexe or Garden Lodge.

Contrary to popular belief ALL mobile homes that are going to be lived in need permission from your Local Planning Authority.

We prepare & submit your planning application, Certificate of Lawfulness or in some cases both as a dual application to your Local Planning Authority for you.

Planning & Certificate of Lawfulness applications for annexes need plans & scale drawings which we offer as part of the service.

We then appoint our planning expert to liaise with the relevant case officer assigned to your application throughout the process. They will address any concerns raised by your Local Planning Authority and ensure that the application has the very best chance of being approved.

Build Specification Review

Once planning permission of a Certificate of Lawfulness is successfully obtained, we’ll set up a build specification review.

As planning permission or a Certificate of Lawfulness can take anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks from start to finish, we book a build specification review meeting with you to make sure we have all the details correct before your annexe goes into production.

Groundworks

Once planning permission is successfully obtained we can start the build process by planning & preparing your ground works and service connections ready for the installation of your garden lodge or annexe.

Our Contemporary Log Living ground works team will make light work of most situations, there are always challenges to overcome on every site but we will always find a way.

Timber-Frame (Kit) Manufacture

We manufacture all our garden annexe timber-frame kits ourselves at our workshop in Shifnal so that we can ensure a smooth well planned installation. 

Our garden lodges are manufactured in Northamptonshire by the UK’s premier lodge manufacturer. All garden lodges are manufactured to BS3632 for quality assurance and comfortable year round living.
