Oak Annexes and Garden Cottages
SELF-CONTAINED ANCILLARY ACCOMMODATION IN BEAUTIFUL OAK FRAMED BUILDINGS.
ANNEXES & GARDEN COTTAGES
Ancillary or secondary accommodation – be it a ‘granny annexe’, a ‘guest cottage’ or a ‘holiday let’ – can be an invaluable asset.
As multi-generational living continues to rise, a separate dwelling can give both elderly relatives and young adults unable to afford a place of their own the independence as well as family support when they need it.
There are numerous benefits to several generations sharing the same property, including acting as a stepping stone for young adults saving for a house deposit, or having retired grandparents on hand to help with looking after their grandchildren. For older relatives, having family nearby provides company and assistance.
Other potential advantages include shared bills and someone to walk & feed the dogs.
If you don’t have family members to accommodate, having a private, self-contained space for occasional guests or as a source of rental income can be a real advantage.
Our single storey oak annexes and two storey garden cottages are in many cases adaptations of our standard outbuildings however we can also design fully bespoke buildings. Features such as exposed oak beams, trusses & purlins create a wow factor from within whilst dormer windows, French doors and full height glazing add charm and enable you to ‘bring the outside in.’
Elderly Relatives – we create comfortable and practical granny annexes to provide independence and safety for your loved ones whilst adding value to your property. Avoid the cost of care homes and recoup your build costs in a few years whilst living close to your family members.
Retiring & Downsizing – our annexes and garden cottages can be the perfect solution if you are looking for a manageable and low maintenance retirement home.
Young Adults - are they living at home or returning from University? Can they afford to get on the property ladder? Are they saving for a deposit for a mortgage? We can design a building which offers them independence from a ready-made building plot in your garden whilst increasing the value of your property.
Guest Accommodation – a ‘room in the garden’ for family, friends and guests.
Staff Accommodation – multi-purpose buildings for staff quarters and equipment.
