One of the most frequently asked questions we get asked is “how much does a granny annexe cost?”. As this is a major construction project it really does depend on the size of the annexe you want us to build, what style of annexe you prefer and whether you want a pitched roof (like a bungalow) or a flat roof with a canopy to give it that contemporary look.

Once we have discussed those details with you, the other key factor to consider for a true costing is where you are thinking of putting the granny annexe in your garden and how close the mains services of electric, water and sewerage are which is something we can do for you as part of our free on site consultation service.

Our Huscore annexes are granny annexe floor plans, designs and sizes that have been inspired by our most requested floor plans and sizes over the many years we have been designing and building annexes.

We have also considered certain factors your Local Planning Authority will consider for successfully obtaining planning permission within the Core annexe ranges.

So in a round about way if you are looking for the most cost effective way to build a granny annexe in your back garden start with our HUSCore range.

Our HUScore range of annexes start from just £72,100 for the Cantley one-bedroom annexe with a flat roof.

With most people financing their granny annexe from equity released from the sale of their main home it pays to play it smart and keep in control of your budget when building an annexe for a family member in the back garden.

 

Some Factors That Affect The Overall Cost Of A Granny Annexe

  • Size : the bigger the granny annexe, the more it will cost.
  • Distance from mains connections : (10 metres is included in the price), if the distance is more than 10 metres there is a simple price per metre additional cost.
  • Pitched roofs cost slightly more than flat roofs and the larger the annexe, the larger the pitched roof cost will be.
  • Ground levels, pumps and septic tanks : Ideally your annexe needs to be at a slightly higher level than your services to allow for a natural fall into your mains sewerage. If the ground level is too flat a pump will be required or in some cases a septic tank might be the best option.
  • Internal and external specification upgrades, including decking, external lighting, upgraded appliance & kitchen choices, upgraded flooring and any special adaptations needed for your granny annexe.

When you are thinking about an annexe for a loved one, cost is a major consideration which affects everyone involved.

There are considerations as a family for where Mum & Dad are going to live on a permanent basis and with which member of the family.

There are also considerable benefits to the main house owner for the future resale value of their house as a  “house for sale with a granny annexe” being currently one of the most searched for terms on Google for the term “granny annexe.”

Ideally people would love an instant solution where they can buy a house with a granny annexe ready to move into.

Customers tell us all the time that they have researched the options available and found them either completely unaffordable, in the wrong location or are not what they would call a self-contained annexe that would like their relatives and loved ones living in.

The vast majority of our annexe customers ideally want to spend between £80,000 and £100,000 in total for their annexe build.

It should be a move that is primarily about a better quality of life and for some of our customers it’s a much needed new lease of life.

 

Granny Annexes And Council Tax

In 2014 the Government scrapped what it called the “unfair surcharge” on family annexes, which saw two separate council tax bills levied on the same home if it had a ‘granny flat’, ‘granny annexe’ or similar extension.

The two dwellings were treated as separate dwellings, each requiring Council Tax to be paid under the relevant Council Tax Bands.

This was then quickly revised and as long as the annexe is in use by a family member or the main house owner, Council Tax is payable at the reduced rate of 50% of your banding.
