Full Specification

A Granny Annexe from Rubicon is truly a safe and comfortable home from home. It’s built to Housing Standards with exceptional levels of insulation, ensuring your loved ones will not only be super cosy, but the costs of heating will be minimised, even in the most extreme of winters.

Looking after an elderly relative these days is an expensive business with care home fees reaching extortionate levels. With residential care now costing anything from £40-£60,000 a year and the inherent health risks within communities of elderly residents (Covid risks etc), it makes sense to keep your loved ones close.

They can enjoy independent living, safe in the knowledge that a caring relative is just across the lawn in case of need. It makes sense economically too, with the cost of installing a luxury granny annexe in your garden often being recovered within 12-18 months of installation when compared to external residential accommodation.

For elderly relatives, selling the family home can be a traumatic and emotional experience. But when their home becomes too big to manage and with health deteriorating, liquidating this asset will free up substantial funds, enabling not only the purchase of the granny annexe, but also savings which can be banked for future security.

Furthermore, a granny annexe is well known to add value to your property, so instead of wasting huge sums on residential care homes, your investment is not wasted as you retain the asset value.

Even a large 2 or 3 bedroom Granny Annexe of up to 20m x 6.5m can often be built in your garden without Planning permission, incorporating lounge/diner, double bedrooms, toilet, shower room and kitchen. PRICED FROM £49,995 (8m x 4m) everything can be made to your requirements with this model, but standard specifications include (model shown with cost optional front and side canopies):

Base Recommendations

BASE REQUIREMENTS & OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

In order to ensure that your RUBICON™Garden Building is installed in the correct manner it is important that the following Requirements are understood:

1) Ground conditions must be suitable for the installation of concrete pile foundations or cast in-situ concrete pads unless a suitable existing concrete slab is already in place. We can advise on this during our FREE site survey

2) Our quoted price for your RUBICON™Garden Room assumes that the area where the Building is to be fitted is reasonably flat. Although the feet of the building are adjustable by up to 18" there are limits which can incur additional costs. We will identify if this is the case during our FREE Site Survey.

3) From a Planning Permission perspective, most of our buildings can be fitted right up against your neighbouring walls or fences. However, we normally require a minimum of 600mm (2') clearance to three sides (unless you have permission from your neighbour for us to access via their land) and usually 2m to the front elevation of the building to facilitate access for assembly, and to allow us to take the necessary Health and Safety precautions on behalf of our fitting teams.

4) Some components of our buildings are very large and heavy, such as the panel assemblies which can be up to 10' x 4' and 200mm thick weighing in excess of 60 kilos. Consequently, it is important that access to site is unencumbered and free of obstruction. Please note: Access to site via an internal route through an existing building is not usually practical or permissible - check with us first.

5) Vehicular access to the front of the property at which the Garden Room is to be installed needs to be suitable for a large delivery vehicle, with adequate space for unloading large quantities of material. Talk to us if you think this may be a problem - we can usually find a solution...!

6) The area where your Garden Room is to be assembled should not be overgrown by hedges, trees, vegitation or other material obstructions or debris such that would impede our installation team, cause them potential physical harm (hawthorn hedges etc), or undue delays in having to clear the site and surrounding area prior to starting work.

7) You will need to ensure that there are no overhead or underground services such as electricity, water, telephone, gas or drainage which will impair our ability to install your Garden Room on the proposed site. Again, we can help to confirm this during our FREE Site Survey visit.

8) We will require access to a suitable 240v 50Hz mains electricity supply and mains running water for our staff during normal working hours, typically from 8:00am to 6:00pm each working day.

The Small Print

Whilst our Garden Room specifications are very comprehensive there are a couple of items NOT included in our standard range prices for the reasons stated below. However, these services can be priced for on an individual basis and included at extra cost if the Customer so wishes:

1) Supply, routing, trenching and connection of armoured cabling required to facilitate the electrical connections between any existing 240v supply (from your House for example) and the Garden Building's Consumer Unit.

Reason: As every installation varies, it is impossible for us to provide a standard price for this service but can quote following survey.

2) Supply, routing, trenching and connection of any Water, Drainage, Gas, Telephone, Internet or other such Utilities.

Reason: As every installation varies, it is impossible for us to provide a standard price for this service but can quote following survey.

3) Clearing of ground and/or removal of debris and any other physical ground or overhead obstacles, other than light surface soil and vegetation, needed to enable the efficient and timely installation of your Garden Room

Reason: As every installation varies, it is impossible for us to provide a standard price for this service.

4) Painting and decorating of interior walls, ceilings and woodwork.

Reason: It takes plaster skim about 7 days to dry (may be longer in colder weather) and for us to return to site to carry-out this work would cost more than either doing it yourself, or employing a local firm to do it for you. This helps us to keep the costs of our standard products down.

5) Carpet, Tile, Laminate or other types of floor coverings.

Reason: Our standard fit is an industrial grade P5 water resistant rated 22mm thick interlocking floor system. This is a perfect subsurface for any type of floor covering, including ceramic tiles, laminates or carpets. As the types and colours of floor coverings vary so much, it is impossible for us to provide a standard price, as you will most likely want to make a personalised choice. It will be more cost effective for you to contract a local supplier for this service, although we will do it for you if you wish.
