The concept of having a Granny flat or auxiliary building has really made a resurgence in recent years. And for good reason! For those with enough space on their land it can be a great addition for a number of reasons.
- Some people choose to rent out their granny flat for an additional income stream. Or a retired couple might decide to move in themselves and rent out their larger home which they’ve outgrown.
- Maybe nan or pop are getting a bit old and its time to keep a closer eye on them so we can lend a hand. In some cases building an auxiliary building would be cheaper than moving them into a specialised care home.
- Depending on your requirements, it can also be great alternative to a traditional home extension. You gain the extra space, but also have the flexibility to use that space for other purposes. Maybe an art studio or just somewhere to get some quiet time away from an irritationg spouse!
- Got a kid that just won’t leave home? A granny flat could be a good way to finally get them out of the house!
Some of the older suburbs around Geraldton have extremely large block sizes. And traditionally a lot of older homes in Geraldton were built very close to the street leaving plenty of space towards the back of the property, this makes them ideal for adding additional buildings! And you don’t need to go through the process of subdividing your block.
