What Is The Cost Of Building An Annexe?
3 of the most frequently asked questions we get asked about annexes are:
If you have been following us for some time you’ll know we’ve been involved with annexes and annexe living since 2011 when we part of the Sales & Marketing team at the Ideal Home Show which featured a stunning Open Plan Contemporary style log home from Sweden.
Since then, we’ve been featured on Amanda Lamb’s My Flat Pack Homes TV Show, been featured at the National Home Building & Renovation Show & Grand Designs Live and spoken with literally thousands of people about the best way to go about building an annexe in the back garden.
We consider ourselves to be the best free advice you’ll get anywhere in the annexe sector and if you have a question, please feel free to contact us on the website or on our Facebook page if that’s easier for you.
So let's talk about costs and some of the reasons they vary so much
We believe in the saying “You get what you pay for.“
Annexes are a major purchase and should be considered as such.
Chances are they will be the second biggest purchase you make (after you main home.)
And therefore weighing up all the options available can be difficult for many people as it is not something many people have ever done before.
In fact if you say to someone this week, “I’m thinking of building an annexe in the garden for my Mum” you may well get a very puzzled look back at you with the question, “What’s an annexe?”
This may help to visualise what a modern day annexe may look like, we think they are beautiful
Annexes involve every trade a full house build would require
Why annexes cost as much as they do? It takes a huge amount of time, effort & skill from multiple trades & people to either manufacture & build an annexe to your specification or to build an annexe on site in your back garden.
