DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ANNEXE AND 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.

Features Annex Mobile Home
VAT 20% 0% (with bathroom and kitchen)
Planning Permission Required Not Required
Building Control Required Not Required
Size As permitted by planning application 20.6m x 6.7m (65.61ft x 21.98ft)
Height As permitted by planning application 3.05m (10ft) floor to ceiling
Ability to relocate No Yes

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.

If you think an awkward garden shape might be a problem, rest assured that we can create a structure that fits like a glove in any space.

All our liveable spaces are beautifully finished to your specifications, fully insulated for comfortable and cost-effective use throughout the year, and come with a 10-year structural warranty.

It all starts with a single conversation. Then we come to you, we listen, we advise. We understand the importance of a perfectly designed living space for years to come. With our turn-key approach, you can relax and enjoy the process while we take care of every aspect of your project.

To make things simpler, most of our projects do not require planning permission, so they can be started in weeks, rather than months, and positioned in protected and conservation areas.

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.
