Yes so in other words it basically says you may live in the annexe and work there whilst your parents live in the main house i.e. one household no separate agreement about occupation of the properties you are all one family. It is an annexe not a separate dwelling. If instead of doing that you rent out the main house and you stay in the annexe then they will be two separate dwellings because you are not living together with the stranger who is renting the main house. So you could exclude the workshop from the lease and still use it as a workshop because the prohibition is not against a separate workshop it is against a separate dwelling i.e. someone living there, so you cannot sleep there but can use it as a workshop. I trust this assists
Yes exactly and no there are no rules re Annex/house as long as technically you could sleep in the house i.e. by keeping a room for you then it is fine. I trust this assists
