Granny Flats have become a very popular alternative to the mainstream building method employed by your typical house builder.
The Sunshine Coast is particularly suited to the Granny Flat style of liveable space due to its laid back life style and the many rural, semi rural and rural residential blocks of land available.
Quite a number of farm properties are being subdivided and presenting wonderful opportunity to those wanting a much more basic style of building which costs so much less than the more ‘typical’ ways of building a liveable space. Also on the Sunshine Coast there are many existing rural properties with established dwellings and due to local council by laws, there has been allowance made to permit a secondary dwelling(or Granny Flat).
There is a vast range of freedom in design when we consider that the Granny Flat structure is basically a large open space inside which there is freedom of choice as to the layout of rooms without the need to consider internal walls being required for the strength of the building.
There are some things to consider when planning your home space:
There are many different forms of building to either standout as unique, or blend in with existing structures on your land. We can match roof shapes, blend colours etc
