What kinds of houses are in the annex?

The Annex homes, which were constructed between 1880 and 1910, are excellent examples of Victorian, Queen Anne, and Richardsonian Romanesque architectural styles. Many of these residences have outside facades made of plum and pink-colored Credit River sandstone, rich red brick, and terra cotta clay tiles. Some buildings have been altered or added to over time, but most remain intact and many are now used for other purposes such as offices or private schools.

Annex residents had the choice of having their house built on a corner lot or in the middle of the block. The majority (approximately 75%) chose to have their house built on a corner lot. This may have been due to the desire to have more space or because they felt it was an important aspect of home ownership at that time. Regardless of the reason, all Annex houses have front and back yards, with some houses also having side and rear yards. Most houses also have basements, although some do not. There are currently about 60 homes in the Annex.

Annex land is owned by the city but maintained by the Canadian National Railway. Residents paid no property taxes until 1985, when the city began collecting annually from each household $100 per year ($250 today) in exchange for free maintenance of the roads and rail lines that run through the neighborhood.

How is the furniture in the annex different from that in Jonas's dwelling?

The apartments are furnished in a generic style, but there are no publications or art pieces on the walls. The walls of the annex, on the other hand, are adorned with a plethora of books, opulent furnishings, and luxurious materials. The inside of the house is practical yet bland and boring. The annex wall is equipped with a buzzer. When you press it, a voice tells you the time and whether anyone is waiting for you on the other side.

There is one more difference between the two apartments: the apartment keys are kept on a hook by the door of Jonas's dwelling, but those of the annex are hanging on a peg next to it.

Overall, we can say that the apartments are almost identical. They both have two rooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, a living room, and a yard. The only thing that distinguishes them is the fact that one is used as an office and the other as a library.

Can a self-built house have an annexe?

While everything is conceivable in a self-build home project, annexes are only allowed to be one story and are considered auxiliary accommodation to the main house. The builder cannot make any money from the addition; it is there for aesthetic purposes or as extra space. If you want to add on to your self-build home, make sure you find a reputable builder who will work with you on your design.

The best way to decide if an annexe is right for you is to build one. See what function it serves and how you might use it as inspiration for your own plan. You could for example create a studio apartment over the garage or turn it into a gym. The choice is yours!

Annexes can be built of any material as long as it's stable enough for its purpose. They usually consist of a single room with a kitchenette, but they can also be used as a dining room, office, playroom, or even a bedroom. They should not affect the value of your home if it's being sold independently of the main building; otherwise known as "strata title".

The total size of your annex needs to be less than 4,000 kiloWatts (kW) if you want to claim tax relief from the government.
