Building Granny Flats on the Sunshine Coast

A Granny Flat Resurgence

The concept of adding on a granny flat when building a new home has really seen a resurgence in interest over the past decade or so.

And there’s little wonder why. There’s a long list of reasons why building a granny flat can be the right decision – for families, the retired, the creative or the home business owner.

Also, if not to move in with family, building a granny flat as an investment is a sound and popular choice because it provides an extra income with a very small initial outlay.

We find out what your dual living options are when building with Stroud Homes Sunshine Coast.

Granny Flat Home Design Options

Most granny flats accommodate at least two people. They usually have their own or shared garage, private kitchen, en-suite, lounge and alfresco, which can be private or shared.

Most of them are smaller self-contained units, which work perfectly for an elderly couple, older children or single dweller. At Stroud Homes you can choose between attached granny flats or stand alone granny flats.
