This is the first of a series of podcasts designed for homeowners who may be interested in building a Granny Flat on their property.
In this podcast session, two key people from Ian Cubitt’s Granny Flats: Mark (Operations Manager) and Vince (Manager of Planning), discuss Council Regulations and Building Codes affecting the planning and construction of Granny Flats.
If you are looking to invest in a Granny Flat in NSW, we would recommend you listen in; there’s lots of good advice here from the experts in their field regarding some rules and regulations that you may not have considered ...
Granny Flats NSW Council Regulations and Building Codes
Some of the topics they discuss:
- Minimum approved property sizes for a Granny Flat construction
- Building regulations for uneven, hilly and rocky blocks
- Constructing Granny Flats in front yards, back yards and over pools
- Building Code regulations for building over an existing house
- Maximum and minimum bedroom configurations
Mark also mentions the free seminars that the company runs for potential Granny Flat investors:
"Our free info seminars happen every 8 weeks. Anyone is welcome – it’s for free – and you are able to come and ask any questions and obtain any answers on the questions you might have about our Granny Flats ... about council regulations ... about investment returns; and how to bring your family together."
This key information comes to you from a company that has been in the building industry for over 20 years. And around 10 years ago – when many Granny Flats were often just humble converted garages – Ian Cubitt’s were one of the first to provide quality, architect-designed styles.
Today, the company has risen up to become New South Wales’ largest and most trusted Granny Flat builder, constructing some 300 Granny Flats a year with a range of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom options in a variety of designs.
