No Planning Required
Planning permission is not required, our annexes are covered by the caravan act. A certificate of lawful development is sufficient and we can arrange this on your behalf.
Design & Finish
Each annexe is designed to the customer’s specifications. You decide on a suitable size and layout, and choose from a wide range of interior and exterior finishes and features.
Built to Last
Our unique construction system complies with the BS3632 standard and does not require Building Control. It will withstand severe storms and flooding, and is maintenance free.
Unlike a built annexe, our park home annexes are VAT free. They can also be relocated and are transportable, and have an expected lifespan of 100+ years. Thus, they make a viable long-term investment that isn’t tied to your home.
Granny Annexe Manufacture & Build
Planning & Lawful Development
Our granny annexes are designed and constructed using the same system we use for our park homes. This means that for planning purposes they are covered by the caravan act. Planning permission is not required, a certificate of lawful development is sufficient for their installation. We can arrange this on your behalf.
.Annexes are manufactured off site in our factory and delivered to the site by us. The manufacturing process includes the installation of any requested features, and final internal and external finishes. There is only minimal onsite work required to complete the build. Annexe design and manufacturing are usually complete within 3 months.
The annexe is installed on ground screw piles. This method provides a proven safe and secure foundation for your home. The ground screws are quick and easy to install, and there is no digging required or mess to worry about. Once the annexe is onsite, installation is usually compleate within 2-3 days.

Each annexe is designed individually according to our clients requirements and tastes. We can help you choose or design a layout that works in the space available, and choose from the many options available. Optionional features include electric underfloor heating or alternative heating system, kitchen and bathroom styles, mains fire alarms, sprinler systems, and more.

A Warm & Comfortable Home
Low Fuel Bills with Passivhaus Standard of Insulation
Our granny annexes are built to the Passivhaus standard, the Gold Standard for energy efficient buildings. They can maintain an almost constant temperature, with only a minimal amount of heating or cooling needed.
Stay Snug and Warm with Underfloor Heating
Underfloor heating is the perfect compliment to the Passivhaus design of our annexes. It is low maintenance and very energy efficient. Heating the room evenly, rather than concentrating warmth around a radiator, will keep everyone warm and snug and allow complete freedom to arrange the room as you want it.
Noise Blocking Insulation
We use a high level of acoustic insulation in the construction of our granny annexes. You can look forward to enjoying yours in peace and quiet.
Accessible Homes Designed to be Lived In
No Steps, Installed at Ground Level
Our annexes are normally installed at ground level, there are no steps to enter the building. You’ll be able to walk in through a clear, easily accessible front door without dealing with any obstructions.
Integrated Accessibility Features
We can build in accessibility features at the time of constriction, to ensure a comfortable environment designed around a person’s specific needs.
Built to Last
Our granny annexe construction system and finishes are built using a tough GRP design. No perishable materials like timber are used in our buildings, there is nothing to degrade or fail. Finishes are completed at the time of manufacture, and will never require painting.
We use a triple-layered construction with a combination of MgSo4 fireproof board, and fireproof rockwool insulation. Both are non-combustible and Euroclass A1 fire rated. The fibreglass elements use a range of fire retardant resin and gelcoats, these meet Class O surface flame spread of Building Regulations. We also offer options for mains powered smoke detectors and sprinkler systems to give you complete protection.
Built to Last in the Harshest Environments
