Don’t Let The Name Throw You – A Granny Flat Is For Everyone.
There will always come the inevitable time when you run out of space for you and your family. You knew this day was coming and you are trying to put it off for as long as you possibly can. However, the time has come for you to make a decision with regard to how you’re going to make more space in or around your current property. You have been playing with a number of ideas, you have already spoken to your local building contractor and together you have come up with some really excellent ideas. You could use some of the current space that you have like the garage or the attic, or you could maybe think about knocking something down that is currently in your home and then adding to it to create the perfect living quarters. It is essentially up to you, but you probably should consider changing some part of your home into a granny flat.
Don’t let the name throw you because you’re not creating the space just for grannies. You can create a knock down rebuild granny flat in Canberra for a fraction of what it would cost to have to move to a completely different property and start again. There are a number of reasons why people decide to build a granny flat and we will try to cover some of them here today.
* It keeps your family close – A granny flat is not only additional accommodation for family members, it can also be an extra room that is available for family and friends when they come to visit. If your parents are getting on a little bit but you would like to have them close to you so that you can keep an eye on them, then a granny flat is the perfect addition to any home. You are allowing your parents to keep their independence, but to be much closer to those who love them and who want to take care of them if they need any help.
* It creates extra income – If you build a granny flat to cater to one of your children and to allow them to have the privacy and the extra space that they need, there will come a time when they want to fly the nest and buy their own property. This will leave you with accommodation that is not being used and so you can rent it out to tenants for some extra cash every single month. You can put this towards your mortgage or if this is paid for already, then you can maybe book yourself an extra holiday this year.
There is always a way to create extra space in and around your home and with the right contractor at your back, nothing is impossible.
