Garage Conversion to Annexe

If you have aging parents, moving them into a granny flat on your property has great advantages. By having your parents living on your property, you will be able to check in with them on a regular basis to see how they are getting along. Since the granny flat living unit is a separate from the main home, your elderly parents will still have a place of their own with a kitchen, bath, living space, and bedroom.

Whilst the elderly relative is still in good health his or her independent life can be prolonged by the simple arrangement of accommodating them close to but independent from the family. High property prices, the cost of childcare and insufficient places in care homes to accommodate an ageing population can make it both emotionally and economically sensible to invite the grandparents to move in. Help with babysitting and the security of knowing the relatives are close by in an emergency can work to all generation’s advantage. In addition there is a further advantage: Any part of a property, such as an annex or similar self-contained part of a property that is occupied by a dependant relative of the family in the other part of the building will be exempt from Council Tax.

Another great advantage of a granny flat is that the energy bills will be substantially lower in this smaller living space. Many elderly couples find that they must move out from their large, spacious homes as they often find it difficult to maintain a big house and property.
Living in a granny flat can be the perfect answer for single people, young couples, or aging grandparents due to their features and pricing.

So if there is sufficient space to turn a ground floor room or a garage into living space it’s simple using Saniflo units to install ensuite bath/shower and WC facilities and to install simple kitchen facilities even where the soil pipe or drain is remote and gravity drainage is a problem.

Independent living can be achieved without breaking the bank or digging up the floor. Whether it’s for a granny flat or for separate accommodation for ‘first-homers’ who haven’t yet saved up the deposit for a starter flat or house, Saniflo have a product that will enable the installation of extra facilities.
