Exactly what was needed

Additional accommodation at the bottom of the garden is a great idea. With an amazing level of insulation, bespoke design and unique features your parents, your children or yourself can feel even more comfortable than in the house.

Individual design

All our annexes or mobile homes are designed to suit your requirements. We start the conversation from the available size, number of bedrooms and bathrooms and continue through to the features you would like.

Unlimited features

With unlimited possibilities we can design and build something really special and with the use of modern technologies like SIP walls, heath pump and air recuperation systems you can be sure that your new structure will be a perfect place to live.

See it in the video

In the video below you can see an example of one of the mobile homes we’ve created and hear what the owners think about the design and build process, as well as their views on living in this place.

You can see that we challenge the convention and bring our design flare to a traditional (and very boring) mobile homes. If you have any questions regarding your project, feel free to call us and we hope we will have answers to all of your questions.

Build time

Depending on the size of the annex or mobile home you are looking for the build time varies between 5 weeks to 5 months (for the biggest units up to 20×6.8m). As there are always plenty of factors influencing the price, we always start from a long conversation, site survey and design process that will deliver exactly what you are looking for.

Small Annex Example (6x4m)

From £58,900

Designed to accommodate one person, this small annex will fit in a small garden. Its walls have better insulation value than most houses in the UK, making it a perfect place to live in. As the building could be installed as a mobile home, planning permission is not required.

Medium Annex Example (10x4m)

From £76,000

Perfect for two people, insulated to a higher standard, designed to look amazing in every garden. As the building could be installed as a mobile home, planning permission is not required.

Large Annex Example (11x6m)

From £135,000

This two-bedroom large annex will be a very luxurious accommodation for a couple who often need an additional bedroom. Large, spacious and attractive design make it a great annex. As the building could be installed as a mobile home, planning permission is not required.

What is the difference between an Annex and a Mobile Home

Aesthetically and in the quality of building there is no difference. Mobile Homes don’t have to stand on wheels or look like a caravan. The main difference is in the small print of the law:

  • Mobile Homes do not require planning permission and can be installed in protected areas, Areas of Natural Outstanding Beauty and everywhere else where obtaining a planning permission would be impossible.
  • Mobile Homes have 0% VAT rate while Annexes have 20% VAT.

The table below illustrates few more differences.

If you have more questions please feel free to get in touch with us and we will answer all your questions. From our experience, after successfully building a number of mobile homes, we would recommend this route as cheaper and faster way to your perfect garden building.

All our annexes and mobile homes are individually designed. They are also built on site. This allows us to get into hard to reach sites and will give you a much higher quality standard of building which is comparable to a new build house, with an insulation above the level required by building regulations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a planning permission for your a mobile home?

Our mobile homes do not require planning permission, as in the light of the law they are not classified as buildings. Therefore they can be installed in areas where obtaining a planning permission from the council is often impossible, or where permitted development rules do not apply.

Does it mean my mobile home will need wheels?

Not at all. It is an old story repeated often by people who do not know the rules. Your mobile home will not look any different than traditional annex.

How tall can the building be?

The maximum inside height of luxury mobile home is 3,05m (10 ft). There is not restriction on the external height. In case of annexes the height will only be restricted by the planning application, but we recommend an inside height of 2.4m (7.87 ft).

Will there be a problem in installing a bathroom if my garden slopes down?

No, we can install a toilet more than 100m (328 ft) away and 7m (22.96 ft) below your house. If your house is further away there are other options which will solve the issue.

Can you install a green roof on annex or mobile home?

Yes we can, and it is a lovely feature to add. We usually advise a green roof when you can see the roof of your new building from the house.

Do I need to organise foundation or electrical connection?

No, we offer a turn-key service, which means everything will be don for you. We connect your structure to your mains (or even to a brand new electrical connection if you are building on a new land), water, sewage and take care of foundation.
