Two Storey Granny Annex

On making the decision to realise her dream project by moving her family into her house, (whilst moving herself into a granny annex in the grounds of her garden), our customer, Deborah, came to us with big ideas for her new home! Collaborating with other trades we designed, manufactured & installed an open plan, eco-friendly, wooden house (below).

 The result is this fantastic 2 storey, open plan, log cabin construction timber building, manufactured in 70mm solid timber walls & measuring
a generous 8m x 6.5m. 

Living accommodation includes a spacious, ground level living space, kitchen, loo and  "boot room". On the first floor, there is a generous open plan bedroom with en-suite bathroom and double doors open onto a delightful, wooden balcony.  

This superb quality building incorporates plenty of glazing from high specification, multi-point locking, timber double doors and a variety of tilt/turn & casement style windows for all year round comfort.  The result is a contemporary, light & airy living environment.

Our Installation team relished the technical challenges involved in this build, and from groundworks to completing the building shell took just 10 days. Below are pictures from the ground up as the build unfolded.

A pressure treated timber sub-frame was built onto concrete foundations to accommodate insulation in the floor
