Why We’re A Worthy Competitor

As there are many construction companies to choose from, it may be difficult to choose who to pick. So we’ll give you a few examples of why Family Annexe are a worthy competitor to consider.

1.     Building Independence

We mentioned already how it’s not just about the annexe itself. It’s also about what the annexe provides for someone else – comfort, stability, safety, independence.

When elderly relatives are struggling to complete tasks by themselves, it can feel very debilitating and embarrassing. Especially if they are considered normal, simple task like bathing or laundry. It can be difficult to admit that they need help with such a chore and ignore any form of help.

Our annexes provide a solution to that. A space where your relative can stay that allows them to remain feeling independent but also has you close by for any serious issues or emergencies.

2.     Cost Minimisation

We don’t just work on making sure our annexes our top-quality. We also make sure they’re cost-effective, too.

From £61,950, we offer a choice of one-bedroom or two-bedroom annexes. Each with flat or pitched roofing options and an insurance guarantee.

Our priciest annexe is The Willow, a two bedroom annexe that retails at a price of around £106,000. Which does seem like a lot. But our annexes come fully furnished and modernised. Additionally, it’s one payment in comparison to hospices or care facilities which charge fees per annum. Over time, those fees can add up to can a substantial amount of money.

3.     Stress-Free Service

Family matters don’t pause just because we’re building an annexe, we understand that. So we designed to make our process as stress-free for our clients as possible.

Also, we know that buying an annexe is a massive commitment to make, which is why we can 1000 percent reassure you that your home will be built with the utmost care and held up to a high-quality standard. Additionally, we throw on a ten year, insurance-based guarantee to ease your mind.

We strive to make our building and installation process as stress-free as possible, taking care of everything in our easy seven-step process.

Our Method

Our seven-step process means that all you have to do is wait for the keys to your new home.

A free phone consultation with you is about getting to know each other, but more specifically about getting to know our clients situation and needs. It will be followed up with a quote and annexe drawings so that you can make an informed decision about working with us.

This second step always includes a cost breakdown and payment schedule, along with detailed drawings of the foundation and elevation plans for your annexe.

If you agree with our offered proposal, we’ll send your project manager out to meet you as well as survey your garden onsite. We’ll check utilities like plumbing and electricity and environment surroundings for 100% accuracy on planning your annexe position.

Once we’ve finalised the build spec, we’ll apply to obtain planning permission from your Local Planning Authority (LPA), this is the step that takes the longest. Waiting for planning permission confirmation can take up to 8 to 13 weeks. Once approved, we’ll build your annexe which takes between 6 to 9 weeks depending on size and additional groundworks.

After that, we’ll hand over your keys and your annexe is all set, ready to be moved into right away.
