What’s Annexe Living All About?

You may have heard the term ‘Granny Annexe’ before, but do you really know what Annexe Living is all about? Our Brand Ambassador, Tony Blackburn is here to tell you exactly. Tony is certainly well educated on the subject, he even has his own iHus Annexe for his 100 year old Mother in Law. Watch the video above to bring you up to speed- all in 1 minute, 18 seconds.

We know just how much our customers adore the homes we build for them. So much so, many are keen to spread the word by welcoming prospective owners on a tour of their iHus annexe. We loved the idea – because there’s nothing like seeing the build quality and skillful use of space in an actual home to appreciate the iHus difference. Better still, you’ll discover from our loyal customers just how stress-free the whole process will be. The name we gave to this idea... Open Hus.

We have over 70 Open Hus Show Homes across the UK, so you’re sure to find one in your neck of the woods. Whichever you choose, you’ll receive a warm welcome.

Meet our iHus owners in person in their annexe home – or simply have a natter over the phone if you’re struggling to get out. We know you’ll love their homes, and we think you’ll be equally impressed by their enthusiasm.

iHus - the home of granny annexe inspiration

We launched our popular iHus granny annexe collection a decade ago, and since then we’ve delivered over 500 inspirational homes across the UK. By responding to the needs and aspirations of our customers, we’re proud to say that no two iHus homes are identical. That takes enormous care and commitment to going the extra mile on our part, but we know it’s worth it. Check out this selection of past projects and see the results for yourself.

granny annexe planning

Annexe Planning Permission

Obtaining planning permissions from the Local Planning Authority for your annexe build is a vital part of our service – and we’re successful nine times out of ten.

Our favoured route is to pursue a householder planning application. But if this fails we can also submit a Caravan Act application, which can often gain us the permission we need to build.

annexes for all

Superb Choice

We have the perfect iHus to match your needs to perfection. You can choose from our impressive collection of luxurious one and two-bed granny annexes from as little as £106,387 – or we can create a completely customised home to your exact specifications.

All our annexes begin life at our workshops in South Yorkshire, where we also source our enviable selections of high quality fixtures and fittings.

Streamline Process

Gaining planning consent from Local Planning Authority (LPA) is the first stage. Then we map out a convenient building schedule with you.

Thanks to our smart production facilities and ultra-efficient planning, we can generally construct an iHus annexe in as little as seven weeks. That includes everything from the groundworks up – all the way to our rigorous post-build quality checks.

1. Getting to know you
We begin by inviting you to an online face-to-face meeting for your free consultation. Here, we can talk through your individual circumstances - and begin to really grasp your needs and aspirations. It’s the first stage in creating your dream annexe. We chat through possible internal layouts and room dimensions too, sketching out the best possible uses of space to make your iHus just right for you. From choosing your number of bedrooms to incorporating lifestyle features, you’ll find this an exciting moment as you begin to visualise your new home. Importantly, we also discover more about the dimensions of your proposed building plot and your budget so we can begin to firm up our plans.
2. Planning permission taken care of
We meet with you in person at your site, so we can get to know you a little more and take detailed plot measurements. Then we prepare your formal application for planning permission. This is a particular strength of ours, and our specialists take care of all aspects of planning approvals for you. Better still, they’re so successful in gaining permission, we even offer a full refund guarantee.
3. Build & delivery of your iHus
We assign you your own iHus consultant who’ll help and guide you at every step through to the full completion of your annexe. We also give you the option of taking advantage of our Price Lock guarantee. This ensures your quotation is set in stone for a full 12 months*. We’re proud to say the vast majority of iHus developments are completed within schedule, so you can sit back, relax and experience the excitement of seeing your luxury annexe take shape.
4. Moving into your new home
We can help you with your removal arrangements to make moving in to your iHus annexe plain sailing. Our iHus handyman can be at your side on moving in day. They’ll explain how to set things such as timers and thermostats, as well as helping you sort out those all-important finishing touches. We go out of our way to ensure your new home is just-so. But any snags will be quickly taken care of by our aftercare team. Better still, on the 6-month anniversary of your move, we'll visit to conduct an exhaustive review to ensure everything in your new home is perfect.
