A few answered questions that will help you select your Granny Flat Solution…
Can we change the floor plan or roof shape of a Pre-designed Granny Flat Solution?
Yes you can, as we also build Custom Designed Solutions.
How big can a Granny Flat be built in our backyard?
In South Australia (SA) it is subject to your local Council guidelines but usually around 60 square metres of floor plan ‘footprint’.
How big does our block need to be to build a (freestanding) Granny Flat?
All SA Council zones differ, so it pays to check with your local Council first.
Are there any special Council Approval requirements to build a Granny Flat?
Yes, but unfortunately this is NOT the same in each SA Council district therefore, a check of your local Council planning and building guidelines should be made…but we can do this for you.
Does a Granny Flat (freestanding) need to be separated from our house?
Absolutely NOT and, should you prefer to attach it to your existing home, you may gain more ‘footprint’ floor area. Contact us for further advise and/or view our pre-designed ‘attached’ solutions.
If my back yard has a slope, can we still build a (freestanding) Granny Flat?
Whether your backyard slopes to either side or up or down, a solution can be found because ‘anything is possible’ at Adelaide Home Improvements.
Can I select my own Granny Flat fixtures and/or fittings instead of your Specification?
You sure can, as the fixtures and fittings should reflect YOU not The Builder. Our Granny Flat Specification is all inclusive to allow you to just move in your furniture and start living!
Can I convert my existing garage into a Granny Flat?
Only if your existing garage is under the main roof of the house. However, if your existing garage is a free-standing corrugated iron type….it’s a maybe, as there could be a few issues to check such as, ceiling heights, ventilation, ‘natural’ light and a moisture barrier membrane under the floor, which all need to comply with current SA building regulations.
Can we rent our Granny Flat?
In South Australia the answer is generally NO but please check with your local Council.
How long will it take to build our Granny Flat?
From commencement of construction on site, usually around 10 -12 weeks.
How much does a Granny Flat cost to build?
We have pre-designed solutions, from $100,000*. Custom designed solutions available upon request.
* Price excludes site install costs
