Got Some Questions About Building A Granny Flat?
What is a granny flat?
A granny flat is simply a self-contained, additional home unit (sometimes adjoining the main structure, but more often independent of it). Typically, it has one or two bedrooms, with a bathroom and kitchen. They range from very simple structures to luxurious, at-home getaways. Zoning and other city ordinances place some restrictions on what a granny flat can include in certain areas.
How do I know if a granny flat is right for me?
A granny flat is a great choice for anyone who needs a little more space, or a separate building on their property for any number of reasons. With so many styles to choose from, we feel confident that we have the design that is right for you. I Granny flats designs are suitable for:
- independent homes for elderly family members
- home offices
- guest quarters
- studio space

- special event locations
…and so much more!
Are there restrictions on the size, location, and type of addition I can build?
Yes. While there are general CDC standards, every city has its own restrictions. For more information, please visit the page for your location, or simply contact us by phone or email to discuss your specific concerns.
I’m thinking about using my granny flat as a rental unit. Is this feasible?
Yes! In most areas, renting out part of your own property is a great way to make money, without the usual property management problems (for example, being unable to check on the property regularly due to distance, yard maintenance, poor communication between landlords and renters, etc.). At I Granny Flats, we will be happy to assist you with any questions you may have about this, as well as design a flat with these needs in mind.
Can I use a granny flat for my business?
In most cases, yes. Granny flats can only be added to residential locations, so while they’re always a great choice for a home office, other commercial purposes will vary from city to city. For information on Sydney visit here – http://igrannyflats.com.au/sydney/
