One of the big pluses of the new QCB Garden Annexe is that it can be built without planning permission. Designed to comply with the Caravan Act, it can be used as a home for a family member without the normal rigmarole of a planning application. This saves a considerable amount of time and expense. It also means that the QBC Garden Annexe can be installed quickly, lead times being a matter of weeks and on-site installation completed in a couple of days.
Self-contained garden annexe
The QCB Garden Annexe is a standard size, with an internal footprint of 20ft x 8ft | 6.1m x 2.4m. The accommodation comprises a living/sleeping area, kitchenette with room for a table and chairs and a shower room. As it stands, the annexe is ideal for one person to live independently. If more space is required, for instance, to create a separate bedroom. The Booths team tell us that a second unit can be attached to create an L-shaped annexe. Interestingly, this second building can be added at the time of order, or anytime in the future; such is the way the Booths team have designed the annexe.
This type of annexe is often referred to as a granny annexe, but the QCB Garden Annexe can be used by a family member, young or old. Many families are choosing to install an annexe like this for a teenage child or for a child returning from university, looking to consolidate money.
Kitchen and shower room included in the garden annexe package
The QCB Garden Annexe comes complete with a modern fitted kitchen and shower room. The interior of the annexe does not require decorating, and the flooring is already laid. All you have to do is to move in your furniture.
