“The Treehouse” Granny Flat – Nedlands

Our client has two sons living at home while attending university and she was looking for a way to create a perfect versatile space to escape to.

It also had to be able to accommodate friends and family visiting from interstate and overseas occasionally.

Her backyard has rear laneway access but very little off street parking out the front so it also made sense to have some parking out the back as well.

Our brief was to come up with something which would provide a versatile space with parking, while also complying with all of the City of Nedlands rules regarding setbacks and overlooking of the neighbouring properties.

We came up with this great studio which we’ve called “The Treehouse”. Have a look at the pics from inside and you’ll see what we mean.

Granny Flat Extension – Melville

Our clients for this job live in the UK but have both of their children living in Perth.

They wanted to have somewhere they could stay for three to four months a year to be close to family and share quality time with their grandchildren.

Their daughter and son-in-law had an old games room which was pretty run down which we removed and built this great 2 bedroom granny flat in it’s place.

The granny flat is also used by other visiting family members and it’s rarely empty!!

Granny Flat Extension – Como

Before Annabel had a Granny Flat extension done her family needed additional space for guests which they also wanted to be able to use as a functional self contained area for additional working from home/teenager retreat as children got older. It features a large open plan kitchen and living area with pull out wall bed for additional floor space and a stunning back deck for enjoying those hot Perth summer days.

Granny Flat – Booragoon

Before Bob and the family purchased a Granny Flat they were experiencing the problem of his mother in-law, who they cared for living too far away. So she could keep her independence and privacy they built her the perfect little home right at the back of theirs. Stunning one bedroom addition with ensuite bathroom and cleverly designed kitchen with pull out pantry for plenty of storage!

Granny Flat – Hilton

This two bedroom granny flat in Hilton, Perth was built for Silvia’s parents who were moving from Switzerland. The building was configured to make the most of a northerly aspect and has great light saturation. The three metre high ceilings really add to the feeling of spaciousness and the designer kitchen is a real focal point. The large 2.5m wide verandah built under the main roof is a really effective way to increase the living area of a granny flat while keeping within the allowable size.

Studio Addition – Kensington

The owners of this classic weatherboard cottage in Kensington, Perth needed more space for their teenagers. We converted an old studio into a bedroom, added a bathroom and another bedroom to create a self- contained space which is ideal. While we were at it we built a new undercover parking space with plenty of storage for the owner’s toys as well. This project totally transformed the backyard of this property.

Granny Flat – Ellenbrook

This two bedroom granny flat in Ellenbrook is for Michelle’s Mum. She has sold her place which has become too big for her to maintain and built this new granny flat in Ellenbrook. They chose a rendered finish to match with the existing house and the granny flat shares the main alfresco area. Inside it has a separate laundry cupboard and a large kitchen with an oven stack so she doesn’t have to bend to use it.

Granny Flat – Carine

The owner of this one bedroom granny flat in Carine made great use of a small space by not trying to squeeze too much into the area. This has resulted in a very usable living area and a large bedroom. We started the build while he was in France preparing to move to Perth. While he was away he stayed up to date with his project using our online project management system to monitor progress, confirm selections and keep track of the financials.
