There are many benefits of having a granny flat, whether as a guest house, to rent out or use as a home office.

We have even coined the term – Teeny flat. It’s a practical way to get your teenagers out of the house.

They love it, and you will love it.

Maybe you are starting to work from home like many in the Covid-19 era and need more space. It can be super hard to work in the same house you live in, and a granny flat can be the answer.

Many people need a gap from where they work and live. Being able to step out of your front door to another building makes such a difference. When you have friends and family to visit, a granny flat provides the extra space you need to accommodate them.

We are also seeing families adding granny flats for elderly relatives.

As a separate structure from your main property, we can help deliver the build to meet your expectations and needs.

"We purchased our home over the summer and love it. Juan met with us on several occasions and answered all of our questions.

He has been of assistance several times post move in. Love the materials used in our home, from countertops to hardware to flooring.

The way the home was built was carefully thought out and made to live and make life easier. Will definitely recommend to family and friends."

"Just moved into our beautiful new home and so far everything has been amazing!!! The house is gorgeous and it’s obvious the builder has been super attentive with every detail.

After our walk through, they quickly fixed a few minor things (when I say minor, I’m talking about a paint scuff here or there from open houses) and walked us through our warranties.

They also encouraged us to reach out whenever if we ever had questions or concerns and said they are always happy to pop by!"
