Extended Family Living

Extended Family Living

With hectic itineraries an integral part of 21st century life, the family juggling act is an ever more complex challenge. A ModBox Garden Annexe could provide just the solution! With childcare costs and part-time or flexible/shift working often part-and-parcel to making the family budget work, drawing generations together can help provide new solutions to the weekly grind.

With retired grandparents living on site in their own purpose-built annexe, they are conveniently placed to lend a hand and enjoy a closer relationship with the grandkids than might otherwise be the case. Children get different things from their various family relationships, and the positive role-model of grandparents – who often have more time to devote than their immediate offspring – is a useful facet of extended family living. For instance, help with the homework in future need not come at the expense of preparing next day pack lunches….

Over and above freeing up capital, and the new lifestyle enjoyed by the ‘top generation’ living comfortably in a stylish, new annexe, the impact across all the generations can be significant.

We have many designs to inspire conversation and create a clear brief to your annexe-build. We work closely to create a design and specification which really reflect your family’s requirements. We seek to make the very best use of the available plot, views and sun-path so that your new annexe is both a delight to live in, and sight to behold nestled at the foot of your garden…
