Six Step Granny Flat Process


Step 1 | 6

Obligation free site inspection

One of our experienced design consultants will organise a time to meet with you at your home to discuss your ideas, dreams, wishlist and budget.

Step 2 | 6

Design meeting

This is where your ideas come to life. Your design consultant presents you with a custom designed concept crafted to suit your lifestyle and budget. Your input is important, and your design consultant will listen and incorporate your feedback and ideas so you’re fully satisfied with the planned granny flat.

Step 3 | 6

Presentation meeting

We want your granny flat to be perfect and will present you with: (1) final plans, (2) HIA fixed price contract and (3) a full breakdown of what work we will be completing (specification of work). From here on in, we will look after the whole process including building permits with your local council.

Step 4 | 6

Prestart meeting

Meet with your prestart consultant at our stunning style studio to pick out your colour selections, fittings and fixtures.

Step 5 | 6


Your granny flat’s construction will be managed by your dedicated site supervisor. A final timeframe will be provided to you before site commencement. The building industry is currently experiencing the effects of the global shortage caused by COVID and so you may be affected by these delays.

Step 6 | 6


Receive the keys to your granny flat and now it’s time to make your little house a home.
