Armed with ideas for plans to build their dream granny flat, Ian and Maree knew they had found their perfect builder in Summit Homes when they were informed a brick residence was possible.
“I have been very aware that Summit had a good reputation in the building industry,” Maree said.
“After visiting two other granny flat specialists with our plans, we then visited Summit Homes. We met with a consultant to talk about our plans to build a granny flat and we were very impressed with the high professional service that was offered.
“Once we were told we could have a brick construction for the same price, we were sold on the spot.”
The design for their abode comprised of a 70 square metre granny flat, with a 30 square metre alfresco area all under the main Colorbond roof.
Inside, the home features one bedroom, a kitchen, dining, lounge, bathroom/laundry, separate toilet and a walk-in store room.
“I was very happy that I could choose white brick to match the main house because it blends in very well,” Maree said.
Sliding doors in the dining room, lounge and bedroom, which overlooks the alfresco area on the ocean side of the home, allow for afternoon sea breezes.
“There is so much light coming into the granny flat and this gives a bright and airy feeling,” Maree said.
Both Maree and Ian were pleased with the “easy and stress free” building process and said their site supervisor Russell was always on hand to help with enquiries.
“The staff we dealt with were more than helpful and made the whole experience and enjoyable one,” Maree said.
“In general we were very pleased with the whole experience from start to finish, especially receiving a Nespresso coffee machine when I went to pick the keys up.
“It was such a lovely surprise and something I have always wanted so a very big thank you to everyone at Summit who shared our wonderful experience of building our dream granny flat.”
