What was the most important thing that you wanted to achieve with your Summit Granny Flat

We wanted a build that suited our lifestyle. There are only two of us, and we wanted to be within walking distance from Fremantle, but not overburdened by a property that’s bigger than we need.

When this battle axe block came on the market, we knew we were onto something. This build means we have a low-maintenance home and allows us to pick up and travel whenever the mood takes us – knowing we’ve got a gem to come home to.

How was your experience with Summit Granny Flats during the design stage? Did you have specific elements you wanted included and was Summit able to achieve this?

We went to a number of builders when we started the project and the thing that stood out at Summit, was that rather than focus on the brick and mortar, Drew got to understand our lifestyle first. The result was a design that needed very little modification.

How was your experience with Summit Granny Flats during the construction stage?

The thing that stood out the most in the construction phase was the level of communication. Rob and Sarah Jane kept us in the loop, and we’re always responsive – no matter how mundane the question was. Even after the handover, I still get check-ins.

How do you feel about your new Granny Flat now that it’s completed?

When you build a house, there’s always things you would do differently.

We can honestly say that by considering our lifestyle first, we’ve come out of the process with a home where we wouldn’t change a thing.

The design uses the small foot-print cleverly, flows well, is low maintenance and fits in well with our surroundings and needs. We don’t feel like we’ve compromised on space at all.

Any additional comments or observations you would like to make about Summit Granny Flats?

It’s been a challenging two years for the building industry, but you wouldn’t know from our personal experience.

We’ve built with other builders before – and in less trying times – and not enjoyed the same level of consistent customer service and quality results we saw with Summit.

Thanks to Drew, Sarah-Jane, Rob and the team.
