Independent living thanks to a granny annexe

A couple of weeks ago we featured a video from Booths Garden Studios, where garden room designer Alex Booth and his family discuss plans for installing a granny annexe in their own garden.

Alex’s partners aunt was needing to find a new home following the death of her father and the need to move away from tied estate accommodation, and it occurred to Alex that the solution was to bring Irene into the family fold.

In the first video the family discussed their different expectations for the building, in this new video we visit Irene in her newly completed annexe. The video is well worth a watch if you are thinking of creating a living annexe whether for an elderly or young relative.

This is by no means a huge building. It has an internal footprint of 6370mm x 3640mm which equates to 21 ft  x 12 ft. The interior is split into two creating a bedroom with ensuite toilet and shower of 9ft x 12ft. The rest of the space makes up a general living area with small kitchen area, dining table and sofa bed which allows the opportunity for Irene’s sister to stay.

Irene discusses how she has the best of both worlds – she retains her independence which is obviously very important, but she has the peace of mind of family just meters away if she has a problem.

If you are considering a granny annexe talk to the Booths team who clearly now have a personal experience which they can incorporate into their designs. Visit the Booths Garden Studios website or give them a call on 07590 067 120
