Backyard Grannys – Pool house granny flat
  • I want to give a massive THANK YOU to the whole team at Backyard Grannys. From the first meeting with Mick, to dealing with Kristi during the design stage, to working with Ethan who Project Managed the build, the team did a wonderful job in keeping me in the loop with the progress. My site had a few challenges (nothing to do with BG), however nothing was ever to much of a problem for any of the team. Even when the director, Mark, had to help and meet myself on site due to some challenges with the existing house, nothing was too much to ask. I am so glad I chose Backyard Grannys to build my Granny Flat. I have achieved a great rental return of $350 p/w and everyone who I have shown has been blown away with the finishes. Thanks again team, I would have no hesitation to build with you again.

  • What a fantastic project, from the initial concept to the final product I can't give a higher praise for what you have built fo us. My wife's parents are ready to move in. The professionalism of your team and the trades were second to none.

  • My wife and I had a granny flat built by Backyard Grannys about 15 months ago. The whole experience at that time was very smooth and things were made to be much more pleasurable by people who could regularly be easily contacted and who knew what they were talking about with regular updates. I needed to get in touch with the company recently and was in communication with the the director, Alex Mitchell, about a matter where I was worried that they would not be in agreement. Even though it would have been pretty easy for them to be dismissive of the request, I was grateful that Alex still tried to do the right thing by us and took the path of ensuring that we were properly looked after. It again demonstrated to me that the right builder was chosen in the first place! Thank you again for your continued focus on doing the right thing.

  • Knowing all the usual problems construction entails, I was wary, but surprisingly I couldn't be more pleased with how smoothly the entire build went. The place looks amazing and the level of finishes throughout is a true credit to the whole team at Backyard Grannys. It’s the little things I wasn't expecting but noticed too, like exterior rainwater and town water taps (you even fixed an old tap on the existing house!), tidy work site, quality sliding wardrobes, pegs on the clothesline, quality painting, plus both internal flooring and outside decking was all very neatly finished. And your ability to return/action any emails or phone calls I had made was second to none! They honoured everything in the signed contract and were super flexible around issues. There was no unexpected extra costs that I was asked to pay for and I actually got some money back as the build came under budget. Keep up the awesome work! I couldn’t recommend Backyard Grannys enough!

  • My experience with Backyard Grannys building my custom granny flat has exceeded my expectation. Working with Steve in the design department gave me my own unique granny flat. The granny flat is a very solid construction and the corbel in the brickwork gives it a unique finish with where the cladding meets the brickwork. Jack made the construction process go very smooth and kept me updated regularly. I recommend Backyard Grannys to anyone who is wanting to build a granny flat.

  • I have used the services of Backyard Grannys and Nulex a few times now and have found them to be a very professional outfit. They do a good job, and finish on time and on budget... what more can you ask for from a builder.

  • From the moment we first contacted Backyard Grannys, through to completion of our project, we found the team at Backyard Grannys (particularly Ethan) to be extremely accommodating. Even when we had a glitch with our drainage Ethan went out of his way to solve the problem and we were completely satisfied. The process was professional and trouble-free. The team are always contactable and nothing is ever too much trouble. We are thrilled with our granny flat and would definitely deal with this company again.

  • Thanks to the whole team for an excellent result. We love our Granny Flat! The service and communication was very good and every effort was made to deliver a quality home. Would definitely do it again!

    Stephen P
  • An excellent experience overall with a great final result. I appreciated the fact that it was all kept quite stress-free due to the fact that everyone that you dealt with knew their stuff, cared and was easily contactable with great feedback. Thank you to Abanoub and Jack, who I mainly dealt with. The project was completed on time and at a good cost, even after a rain delay. The return has made it well worthwhile. I would not hesitate to do business with them again. It didn't take long to realise that the right choice in builder was made.

    Nina M
  • Many thanks to the whole team from Backyard Grannys. We love the new Granny flat. We were so impressed by the care-factor that everyone displayed, from Mark, to the office staff and Ethan and his tradies. They listened to our brief to create the perfect home to meet all our needs. We would be more than happy to recommend Backyard Grannys. Professional, Friendly and great value for money. A big thumbs up guys.

  • A very professional team whom worked closely with me to provide exactly what I wanted, ahead of time and on budget. Well done to Ethan, Abanoub, Mark & Alex on a quality build. I hope to do business with you again in the future!

    Richard H
  • We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Annette and Abanoub, and the whole team at Backyard Grannys for completing our project on time and on budget. They helped us to amend their Ivy design to suit our needs and they collaborated with us to produce the perfect building for our block. It is expected to gains a rental yield of over 10%, and we could not be happier! We absolutely recommend the team at Backyard Grannys for a professional, value for money building project.

    Ivan C
  • I was so impressed with the first granny flat that Mark and his team built that I decided to build another. The process is straight forward from design all the way through to the build. The team keep you informed and the end result is excellent. The return on investment is better than any other option currently available.
