We feature a lot of garden annexes on this site, they tend to be one bedroom homes, so we were interested when this two bedroom version by Urban Decor popped up in our inbox.
Urban Decor has been commissioned by a family to create a modern, self-contained home in their garden, for their elderly parents. They commissioned a bespoke design so that they could have input into the layout and the finishes used.
The project is currently going through planning permission. When building a home in the garden, like this, you need to obtain both planning and building control consent to build. Normally, the designer will handle these applications as part of the overall project, so it is as stress-free a process, as possible.
- 11m wide by 5.5.m deep
- 2 bedrooms
- 1 bathroom
- Spacious kitchen
- Open-plan living room
- Built-in storage
- Project cost £96,000
As we mentioned, we normally see one bedroom annexes. This design, however, has two good sized bedrooms. Bedroom 1 being 4.45m x 2.95m and Bedroom 2: 4.45m x 2.45m. Each room has built-in wardrobes.
There are built in storage cupboards throughout the building, so the occupants will be able to store a lot of stuff yet maintain a modern, minimalist look.
At 2.05m x 2.9m the bathroom is bigger than we often see in garden annexe design. With space for a bath or large walk-in shower, basin and toilet.
The main living space is arranged to be open plan. This offers the owners flexibility when it comes to positioning furniture. On the plans, we can see there is room for both seating and dining areas.
A decent sized kitchen area has been designed-in. There will be space for all the essentials ie cooker, washing machine and dishwasher.
Externally, the garden annexe has been designed to have a contemporary style. The pitched roof will be tiled with slates and the walls are a mix of white render and Cedar cladding.
This two bedroom garden annexe has been costed out at £96,000.
