Residential Mobile Homes Are A Surefire Way To Stylish Fully Furnished Annexes

We’ve been involved with annexes and granny annexes for over a decade now and have seen them evolve from imported Swedish Log Cabins to Timber-Frame & SIPS buildings built on site or pre-manufactured and built as residential mobile homes.

Residential mobile homes are perfect for granny annexes (for elderly care or downsizing to a family member’s garden) or luxury lodge style accommodation for a family member, young or old or somewhere in between 😉 

All the residential mobile homes we supply are built to British Standard 3632 and are protected by a 10 year structural warranty for added peace of mind.

If the thought of having an annexe built on site for 8-10 weeks fills you with dread, then for round about the same cost (or for some models slightly less) you can choose from a wide range of residential model homes that come fully furnished and ready to move right in!

The Smart Choice For Annexe Living In 2019

Annexes are popular for a wide variety of reasons. They are considered affordable “little homes” for family members choosing to live at the bottom of the garden.

[divider style=”8″]

Some Of The Most Common Uses Of Annexes Are:-

  • Elderly care as an alternative to Care Homes (which can cost on average around £1,000 per week in the UK).
  • Downsizing to free up equity and help family members to benefit from an early inheritance.
  • Anticipating future care needs and being close to a member of the family.
  • Preventing loneliness after the loss of a spouse or partner.
  • An alternative to living back in with Mum & Dad after a change in circumstances, divorce or separation.
  • Young single parents in need of a place of their own.
  • Independent living for teenagers and young adults unable to get on the housing ladder.

  • What is the best way to go about releasing equity & protecting it?
  • What happens in the future if Mum or Dad become ill?
  • Will the value of the main house increase if I add an annexe?
  • How do I go about getting Planning Permission?
  • How do I obtain a Certificate of Lawfulness if that’s the best way forward?
  • What are mobile homes like to live in?
  • Can I move the annexe to a different location if I sell the house?
  • How long will it take to build the annexe if it’s built on site?
  • What’s the best way to go about having an annexe built & what’s included with the annexe I would ideally want?
