If it’s a tight squeeze at your place, why not build a granny flat?

 In Granny Flat ideas

This tends to be the time of the year when many families realise that they may have outgrown their home. Guests arrive and you’re all on top of each other and there’s no longer enough space for the immediate family.

But the solution doesn’t have to be moving to a new home. A granny flat in your backyard can be a great way to mitigate the tight squeeze you’re experiencing.

It can become a teenager retreat (which is a great way to get them out of your hair!) or a way to have your elderly parents nearby, but maintain their independence.

The granny flat design can have an internal floor space up to 60m², with ample space to include one, two or three bedrooms, living and dining areas, kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities. A totally self-sufficient space! If you’d like you can choose to include an external porch or a carport to provide the finishing touches to your granny flat.

Another reason people in Newcastle and on the Central Coast are choosing to build a granny flat is that, as long as you meet certain requirements, there is no council approval required.

The Backyard Grannys team can obtain a Complying Development Certificate (CDC) approval through a private certifying firm in as little as 10 days and start building on site 7-8 weeks from when you sign a contract.

This doesn’t mean they are kit homes, quite the opposite. The granny flats we produce are custom built on each property and our clients have a wide variety of design options provided to them.

Whatever the reason, the decision to build a granny flat with Backyard Grannys comes with a guarantee that construction will be completed within a 12-week timeframe.

Choose to expand, rather than have it be a tight squeeze and get in touch to learn more about our granny flats.
