Customising your Granny Flat

Posted 21 November 2019

Granny flats are more customisable than many people might imagine. From the foundations to the interior decor, granny flats can easily be tailored to suit your lifestyle needs and personal style.

From the very start of the building journey, you have the power of choice.

Beginning with the location of the granny flat, you can choose whether you would like to build in the backyard or alongside an existing house so the residence has its own street-frontage.

Accessibility is an important factor for any custom granny flat. Local government regulations and land size permitting, you can opt to build close to the existing home or further away. This depends on your mobility, privacy requirements and desired independence.

Build methods are also part of the custom design experience at Summit. You can select a granny flat built using a concrete slab poured on the ground or traditional stumped foundations. And when it comes to construction, you can choose from steel-frame or double-brick.

With more than 20 designs to choose from, there is also plenty of range in the interiors. These include two and three-bedroom floorplans with varying sizes of bedrooms and living spaces. All of Summit’s granny flats come with slimline blinds to all windows, painting to internal walls, ceilings, doors, skirtings and architraves.

Adding further flexibility, you can discuss your ideas and add your own touches when you meet with a Summit design consultant.

Of course, your budget is a key consideration. Summit’s design consultants will work closely with you to ensure your custom-built granny flat is affordable and desirable.
