Granny annexes in the UK
In other countries, citizens often bring caregivers to the grandparent’s home or send the grandparents to a nursing home, in the UK it is done differently. They often bring the grandparents to their son’s or daughter’s house, to make sure their beloved parents do not have to go to the nursing home. This is why the granny annexe in the garden was brought to life, this is not considered odd.
As said your grandfather or -mother could be ill and needs nursing. This could be done by a caretaker in the nursing home, but the son(s) and/or daughter(s) often do not want to abandon their parents and instead take care of them, as they did for them back in the days. When you install a garden annex in the garden, you can regularly visit your mother or father during the day and check upon them.
How to get a garden granny annexe? That is simple, order a summer house or log cabin for your grandparents to live in. At Lugarde we have a wide range of bespoke summer houses or log cabins. You can design the Lugarde product for your own needs with the 3D configurator.
When the granny, grandpa, or grandparents move out of their old home and move into their new home. It may take some time for them to feel at home again. But eventually, we hope to solve the issue that causes them to move, through a granny annex in the garden.

You can design a bespoke summer house/log cabin with the 3D configurator. You can design the Lugarde product like this with a little open area to it. This way you can enjoy an afternoon cup of tea with grandma and/or grandpa or have dinner over at the wooden granny annex.
