Case Study: Granny Flat, Bedfordale

Independent living close to home

Independent living close to home

Creating a granny flat which was part of their family home, while allowing for independent living for their father was a key prerequisite when Greg and Brenda approached Summit.

When Greg’s father Wally, moved to Perth from South Africa in 2017, the family wanted to create a dwelling which allowed him to be close to his son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren.

“We wanted the unit to be comfortable, practical and functional and the unit needed to complement our house aesthetic,” Greg said.

The family worked with design consultant Drew Murray, who guided them through the design process.

“Summit were very accommodating with any design changes we requested,” Greg said.

“Drew also advised us on areas outside of the design, things like utility connections to the main house, earthworks, bushfire (BAL) rating and council approvals.

“Drew’s knowledge on all areas of the project was exceptional.”

Greg described the construction stage as smooth, which he said was completed in a timely manner.

“Our building supervisor Jason Maggs was very professional and friendly and any items we queried were dealt with very quickly,” Greg said.

“Jason was open and honest and kept us in the loop with all the stages of construction. Being a granny flat we were able to keep a close eye on things and it was fascinating to see the building progress from earthworks through to final completion. Overall we were very pleased with the construction stage.”

The end result was a two bedroom, one bathroom granny flat with a laundry, carport and alfresco area.

“We are very proud of the granny flat that Summit have built for us. The workmanship and building materials used were of a high standard and quality,” Greg said.

“My father is loving his new home which he is settling into nicely. It has transformed our property and allowed us to extend the family living area.”

The family said they found the wealth of knowledge and experience of the Summit team made their building experience positive, through all stages from design, pre-start through to construction and completion.

“Prior to choosing Summit for our project we received positive feedback from other homeowners in our area who had built with Summit Granny Flats,” Greg said.

“Thank you Summit on a job well done!”
