GRANNY FLATS

Building a Granny Flat is a very popular way of creating a self-contained and independent accommodation option for extended family or even regular visitors, it can provide you with the flexibility you may need that your current existing home layout can’t.

Some of the more popular options for Granny Flats are:

  • Self-Contained dwelling for extended Family
  • Home Office space
  • Self-Contained Rental Unit for extra income
Considerations to take into account when considering a Granny Flat:
  • You will need council approval?
  • If you plan on selling your house in the future, how ill having a Granny Flat the resale value or will it limit your potential market?
  • If self-contained, access to and from the Granny Flat will need to be considered and parking options and access will also need to be factored in

After considering all of the above items, we can assist you with every step of the process to get your Granny Flat passed through council and built in a quick and efficient time frame.
