i’ve been eagerly planning this build since the back end of 2013. after convincing my dad that i needed a place of my own to live with my cat & boyfriend and save up for our own home, he agree’d on building an annex in the garden behind the double garage, on the premise that it would increase his homes value. this is project annex!
at the moment, there’s just a huge hole. yes, that’s where the annex is going to be. it’s hard to believe that above that ditch, used to exist a family patio, BBQ and rockery area. the ground has been unearthed 4 foot or so below, to drop to street level and the rockery sleepers have been re-installed to create a retaining wall against the garden.
measuring only 6 meters by 5.5 metres, who’d have thought that a bedroom, living area, full sized kitchen and a wetroom would fit here?! it seems like a tight squeeze, but after months of developing the ideal floorplan, it’s certain to fit just perfectly.
