With the rise of inter-generational households, whether for practical, financial or personal reasons, a fully functional, independent living space makes a lot of sense. A Smart Living Spaces Granny Annex – complete with kitchen and bathroom facilities – can be configured to suit whoever plans to take up residence, thanks to the flexibility of the Structurally Insulated Panel (SIP) method we use in construction.
At Smart Living Spaces we can make your Granny Annex as individual as the people who live in it, whether it’s literally your granny or your student offspring back for the holidays. So while your elderly parents would possibly want their Granny Annex to have a more traditional layout with a separate kitchen or bedroom, older teens or young adults might prefer open plan living and a fold down bed. For anyone with mobility issues, we can easily incorporate wider door openings, ramps and other aids to independent living. We can go through your options when we sit down with you to plan your build. It’s all do-able.
Of course, a Smart Living Spaces Granny Annex also makes a perfect guest suite for friends and family, giving both you and your guests room and privacy. Or why not take advantage of the AirbnB trend to offer a comfortable, welcoming place to stay (and recoup some of your investment).
Your Smart Living Spaces Granny Annex can be up to 80 square meters in size (dependent on local planning permission, which we will take care of for you). All meet Building Regulation compliance for spaces that can be lived in. Heating, lighting, electrical points and plumbing are all included as standard.
When it comes to fitting out your annex we have contact book full of quality kitchen and bathroom manufacturers – in all price ranges – and we’re happy to make suggestions. But if you have a specific company or range in mind, we’re more than happy to use them instead.
Because we build using Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), you can typically expect a completed build including fixtures, fittings and finishes within 4-6 weeks.
