Our clients approached us regarding their requirements for a garden annexe to add living capacity to their lovely family farmhouse cottage not far from Callington. With current and long-term perspectives in mind, the family needed extra space as the senior generation were at an age where they required more support and assistance.
In addition, with children at university and the family goal to have a ‘hub’ in Cornwall, the annexe also has the objective of providing a ‘starter-home’ for returning offspring to act as a stepping stone in to full property ownership one day.
From a design point of view, the clients wished us to tailor our ‘classic’ ModBox ‘inset-front’ cedar clad design to their site position, which required careful consideration of lay-out, window positions, sun-path and available views…
We are working with our clients, on a ‘from first sketch to receiving your keys’ basis carrying out all areas of design, obtaining planning consent, construction, connection of services and building regulation compliance.
As requested by the client the garden annexe design took inspiration from our popular ‘classic’ ModBox appearance with an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, ample size shower-room and single bedroom.
