Many of us have heard granny flats but not everyone knows what it actually is and what its purpose is. A granny flat is usually built in the proximity of the main house, in its garden or backyard. It has all the required features and necessities a normal house should have. Imagine your expectations being implemented in a smaller sized house. It will have a kitchen, bathroom and regular rooms – all comparatively smaller than they would be in a regular house.
Building a granny house in Sydney has become very popular thanks to the adjustments in the law by NSW Government, which makes the approval process much quicker and easier. Getting a granny flat build in Sydney is a good idea whether you are doing it for your family members to stay or to simply rent it and have extra income.
Granny flats are limited to an area of 60 square meters and they should be built in an area that is at least 450 square meters. Building process doesn’t take long; from 8 to 12 weeks on average, depending on the size.

Granny flats come in different styles, sizes and shapes. It all depends on your choice and as a professional granny flat builder in Sydney much like us – A1 Granny Flats will deliver it.

Granny flats can also vary in the size. You can have one, two or three bedroom granny flats. These are the optimal sizes. You could go bigger but it opposes the very idea of a granny flat – being rather small.
