Building A Granny Flat – What To Know Before Building A Granny Flat

When deciding whether you are building granny flat in backyard or not, you should know all the design possibilities you have and what those designs add to your property! Each design has a different cost and depending on what you want at the end of it. The granny flat will end up costing more or less, so no reasonable price can be given without talking to the customer directly and knowing what that client wants.

For example, a client might want a two-story granny flat with 1 room, but other people might wish to have a detached granny flat with 2 or 3 rooms! Now you might be wondering what a two-story granny flat and a separate granny flat is. There are 5 main designs for your granny flats, and they are the following ones:

  • • Detached granny flat
  • • Attached granny flat
  • • Two-story granny flat
  • • Granny flat with garages
  • • Detached studio

Each of these 5 designs has its uses and benefits. The detached studio is used to have a working place or a leisure place separate from the main building. The attached granny flats are connected to the main building by sharing a wall (due note that there can’t be an internal door between the two) and a separate entrance from the main building.

Detached granny flats are one of the most common ones as they can also be used to rent and earn an extra side income and help the family’s financial situation in the long run or be used as a living space for young or elderly family members!

Two-story granny flats are the ones that are built on top of garages when there is a lack of space or to maximize space; these are good options depending on your current situation. Granny flats with garages are also a good option, as, with this option, one can get extra garage space.

When building, you should consider the permits needed for it and the laws and neighborhood covenants you have to follow. Also, think about the cost of building and financing before going ahead, so be prepared for all of these and you will surely be able to have a good experience.
