        Build Specification

        You won’t believe the range of annexe options available to you.

        Custom Design & Build

        If you need something a little bit more bespoke to your needs we’re here to help. We can design and build a fully bespoke granny annexe tailored to your unique taste and specification.

        A Unique & Authentic Showhome Network

        Unlike other annexe providers, we don’t have a showhome at our production facility. Instead, we have a network of annexe owners who provide viewings of their homes to potential iHUS customers. We believe there’s no better way to obtain a true perspective of garden annexe living.


        If you haven’t thought about it, you should, because there are immense benefits. It has worked tremendously well for me, in a way that I didn’t expect it to be as good as it is.


        What’s Included With My Granny Annexe?

        All of our granny annexe projects are designed and built right here in the UK, at our production facility in South Yorkshire. Every annexe we build is unique in some way due to the customisation options available with each one.

        Once you’ve taken a look at our new 3D bird’s eye view floor plans, make sure you visit our annexe build specification page to see what’s included with your annex. We also answer some of the most frequently asked questions on our blog.

        Our Process

        At iHUS we’re with you every step of the way. From enquiry and fact finding, planning and consent all the way through to the build and installation of your granny annexe. We’ll make sure your experience is plain sailing.

        Frequently Asked

        It is likely you will need planning permission for your granny annexe. Here at iHUS we have dedicated staff experienced in successfully applying for planning permission who will do all the administration work for you.

        A garden annexe is fantastic for families who want to live together but don’t have space, or who don’t want to totally sacrifice their independence from each other.

        They are fantastic for first-time buyers looking for a way onto the property market, graduates who are returning from University and crave independence and, of course, those who need a little more support to live independently but aren’t ready for elderly residential care.

        Unlike most log cabins, an iHUS granny annexe is fully glazed, insulated, plumbed, and heated. It is a stand-alone home and designed to be a permanent residence all year round. You can choose between one or two bedrooms and even customise the layout.

        The iHUS granny annexes are configurable to suit your exact tastes. You can choose from one of our predesigned layouts, or even design your own.

        Once you have the perfect layout, you can choose from a flat or pitched roof, the type and colour of cladding and decking, the flooring, bathroom suite, kitchen units, taps, external lights, and window finishes. Practically every part of the iHUS granny annexe is up to you.

        Absolutely! We have very experienced staff who can work with the restrictions on your property to ensure the granny annexe does not contravene them and will be granted planning permission.

        Probably, yes! Our staff are well versed in planning and building regulations and can usually find the perfect solution that gives you the granny annexe you need and doesn’t break any conservation regulations or laws.

        Yes! We have a whole range of granny annexes to suit most plot sizes and shapes. If we don’t have the perfect one for you, we can design you one.

        A granny annexe is exempt from council tax as long as it forms part of the main home and the person living in it is a dependent relative.

        You usually are not allowed to sell a granny annexe separately to the main property, as stipulated in the planning permission conditions.

        Yes, granny annexes add value to a property by providing at least one extra bedroom and bathroom. Potential buyers can turn it into a holiday let or spread their own family out.

        We don’t have a show home-we have the iHUS Community! This is a loyal and ever-expanding customer base who are so happy with their granny annexe they can’t wait to show it off to potential customers!
        If you would like to see an iHUS annexe in action, just get in touch with us.

        The smallest granny annexe is the Cosy Pod at 6 meters x 3.8 meters. The largest is Wheatley Extra Plus, which is 13.5 meters long and 6.5 meters wide.

        We can help you apply for finance with our preferred and recommended broker. Just get in touch with us for more information.

        Customisable Granny Annexes

        An iHUS granny annexe is fully customisable, giving you the ultimate control of how you live. These are no basic prefab granny annexes; every aspect is customisable to satisfy your unique requirements.

        We pride ourselves on having a wide and ever-expanding range of footprints to choose from. Whether you are looking for a compact and cosy one bedroom annexe for minimal fuss, or a luxurious two bedroom annexe with storage and separate living spaces, we have something to suit all.

        Once you have chosen your layout you can select your preferred cladding, windows, roof, decking, and even outside lights. Inside, select your flooring, bathroom suite, kitchen units and appliances, plus plenty more besides. Download our brochure to see all the options.

          The iHUS Community

          The iHUS community is a group of delighted iHUS customers, old and new, who are so proud of their annexe they can’t wait to show it off. Our annexes are so unique we feel the best way to inspire you and demonstrate what we can do is for you to see how they are being lived in.

          Once we have an idea of what you are looking for, we will find an iHUS community member with an annexe most like the one you are thinking about. We have community members who will be happy to show you their granny pod, in various locations throughout the UK. We will arrange a time and date with them when you can go and visit unaccompanied by us. This will give you plenty of opportunity to have a look round their home, ask any questions you might have and receive honest answers.
