Children flying the nest is sadly at some point inevitable, however with the rising cost of living prices, expensive renting costs and extortionate first-time buyers’ house prices, reaching this big milestone and starting new beginnings away from the family home for many young adults is one that is just out of reach. This can often be a cause of great stress and anxiety, as well as a massive stretch financially. Research suggests that many young adults are opting to stay at home for longer to avoid renting to save for a mortgage, with the average age of young adults moving out for the first time in the UK being 24.6 years old.

Investing in a garden room annexe

As a parent, you want the best for your grown-up children and to support them through any big milestone like moving out, however, we understand that handing them a house is often out of the question. A more affordable option in the short term would be to consider investing in a garden room annexe. At Hawkbeck garden rooms, we can create the perfect garden annexe, providing your grown-up child with their very own space and giving them a newfound sense of freedom.  There are many other benefits that come with a garden room annexe, such as having parents a short walk down the garden as well as taking the stress and financial strain of renting away whilst helping them to save for their first mortgage.
