Granny Flats in Brisbane
Whether you’re wanting to accommodate someone long term or offer a personal space to visiting guests, granny flats make for a great addition to houses.
Traditionally, granny flats only designed to accommodate one or two people, so they are generally on the small side, with the essentials fittings included. However, modern-day living has changed how we live in our homes. Nowadays we appreciate spacious and functional homes, which makes designing small spaces such as granny flats more complicated to design and build.
Building Granny Flats
Our skilled team has years of experience across a variety of areas, including granny flat builds. We understand that granny flats present a number of challenges, and when it comes to the design elements, it can be tricky to create a unique and functional space.
We work around these challenges by working with you to establish what you are hoping to use the granny flat for. Perhaps you only need a simple space for guests to stay in. We can create a tiny home that accommodates your guests comfortably and practically. However, if you’re intending on having a long term guest, you may want a space that feels more homely and comfortable. This could include a larger living area or a more functional and bigger kitchen. No matter what requirement you may have, we can create a granny flat to suit.

Key steps in a new home build
Knowing where to start can really prevent time and budgets blowouts in the building and renovation process. If you are yet to approach an architect or draftsman we can refer you to highly skilled designers we’ve worked with and show you examples of what we’ve achieved together in the past. If your already in talks with a designer, or about to approach one, then ensure you have following information to ensure plans are possible and time frames are meet.
Every property falls into area classification zones and each zone has different rules about what you can do with your property. When planning your property renovation, check out your zone first to see if any of your ideas won’t be permitted.
Smaller lots or ground space have different planning and developing rules so ensure you check if your property size is deemed smaller than standard as you will need to consider this in the planning phase.
Demolition Control Precincts are scattered across Brisbane protecting areas with houses that were built prior to 1947. These are often referred to as character homes. Approval to demolish or renovate homes in these areas, must be sought.
The City Plans and State Government’s Heritage Register have similar criteria and both need to be checked if your property is heritage listed. Heritage listed properties are protected and any renovation or development plans need to be approved before building. These approvals are separate to building approvals.
Neighbourhood plans are a tool to manage changes within Brisbane’s suburbs, accommodate growth and better protect valued environments at a local level. Some Neighbourhood Plans contain extra rules about new development and these rules need to be sought out prior to planning submissions.
If your property has other development constraints such as a waterway corridor, a patch of native bushland or an overland water flow path, specific developmental plans will need to be in place to accommodate these.
