What is the difference between a granny flat and a house?

It never ceases to amaze me when people react like this…

The other day a friend and I were walking through a granny flat, it was the first time she’d ever seen one and her first response was “it’s like a real house!?”  It was a mixture of delight, awe, excitement and shock!  How could a granny flat look this good?  Do they all look like this?  I should definitely get myself one!

My response to her was “well what did you think it was going to look like!?”  Maybe we’ve been in the custom design game for too long… or in the granny flat industry for not long enough… but the idea that granny flats are some kind of cheap and inferior dwelling is most definitely a misconception.

So what is the difference between a granny flat and a house?

Come to Perth’s Granny Flat Specialist and the answer to this question is… practically nothing!

Most of the granny flats we build are self-contained, free standing units.  They have a kitchen, a bathroom, one or two bedrooms, a laundry, and a living/dining area.  They come complete with all the modern conveniences like cabinetry with soft closing hinges, breeze locks to sliding windows, built in wardrobes, shower screens, air-conditioning and LED downlights.  And they can even be fitted out with roller blinds, raised ceilings, bamboo flooring, rain showers and security screens. Anything you can imagine we can supply and build in.

So when people are surprised by the quality of our work, this is the perfect opportunity to remind them that it pays to shop around before choosing your builder.  At Perth’s Granny Flat Specialist we are committed to providing our clients with the highest quality work that not only meets, but exceeds their expectations.  We offer flexible designs, are responsive to your needs and can accommodate any special requirements you may have.

Our granny flats are really just a small house.  They are not dongas or transportables or sea containers.  They are built in your backyard from the ground up by professional tradesmen following a plan designed by you.
