10 year guarantee on ihus Granny annexes

Watertight Guarantee

Every single iHus annexe is protected by a copper-bottomed 10-year guarantee against faulty workmanship. Insurance- backed, it covers both the annexe structure and all groundworks.

It’s also good to know we boast more than three decades in construction and some 400 luxury garden annexes nationwide to our name, so you can trust us to deliver a home you’ll love for many years to come.

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 annexes from as little as £82,669 – 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.

The iHus Difference

One of the big differences between an iHus annexe and any other on the market is the choice we give you to customise your home.

Begin by selecting your ideal iHus base model with the perfect footprint for you. Then it’s choices galore as you mix and match from hundreds of specification and upgrade options. That includes external features such as rooflines and colourways as well as a myriad of internal details, from kitchens and bathrooms to ironmongery and flooring.

We even use computer generated images and virtual reality walk-throughs to give you a real sense of how your new home will look and feel.

Better still, you can alter your window and door placements and general layout to suit you down to the ground. And our specialist builders will be with you all the way to help create your dream annexe home.

Why not opt for a fully bespoke iHus?

Although you can customise our range of models to your heart's content, we're also happy to work with you from scratch to design you a completely bespoke garden home. The only constraints here are planning restrictions. So if you really want to create your very own grand design, we'll help to make your perfect home a reality.

Free planning report

When you first consider investing in a luxury iHus we start by offering you a free online meeting. This is where we can get to know you a little better and begin to understand your individual needs. We also provide you with a free planning report, in which we outline the potential of your garden plot. This gives us a useful starting point for discussing the type and size of annexe home you can expect to build.

Our unique Open Hus service

Another big difference is our unique Open Hus service. Many of our loyal iHus owners told us they were eager to spread the good news by offering to give prospective customers a tour of their homes. We loved the idea - after all, what better way to demonstrate our luxury annexes than by seeing the end result yourself?

Sustainability

We’re well aware of the impact building homes can make on our world. That’s why we’ve scrutinised every facet of our activity and taken steps to minimise our footprint. From constructing our annexes in the greenest way possible, to using harvested timber from specially grown forests, and using minimal polyurethane – and no gas or oil - in the production process, along with the use of recycled insulation and decking materials. Indeed, as a company we’re embracing Biffa – the highest standards of recycling.

Our Annexes

Over the past two decades we’ve brought the freedom of independence to individuals across every part of the UK with our stunning collection of detached homes. Better still, we’ve enabled families to enjoy all the benefits of true multigenerational living.

iHus annexes - welcome home to quality

To date we’ve planned and built over 400 iHus high-quality annexes, so you can trust us to deliver a place you’ll be proud to call your home.

Built around you

Everyone’s needs and wish-list is different, so we offer lots of choice at every stage to ensure your new home is simply perfect. Indeed, each annexe design in our stylish collection really is just the starting point, which is why no two iHus homes are ever identical.

Quality and choice

For the ultimate in flexibility, each is available in three different sizes and with one or two bedroom options – and you can select from a flat or pitched roof across our entire collection. But the choices don’t end there. We also give you the opportunity to fully customise your iHus to reflect your needs and individual style. And our experts will be by your side to help you choose from our generous menu of options and finishes.
