Ian Cubitt’s Granny Flat Podcast Episode 2: The Design Aspects

Ian Cubitt's podcast Ep2 Granny Flats Design Aspects

This is our second episode in the series for homeowners who are looking to invest in a Granny Flat and want some practical information on design from the company that actually builds them.

This time, Mark (Operations Manager) and Vince (Planning Manager), from Ian Cubitts Granny Flats, discuss the all-important topic of how they design their Granny Flats to suit people’s lifestyles. They explain how correct design can maximise the open-plan living space in a Granny Flat for maximum liveability, light and comfort.

As an example, Vince explains the variety of outside colour schemes that you can consider to blend with certain localities and surroundings:

“Green, brown and earthy colours for districts where there’s a lot of trees and shrubbery; cream and white is very popular out west – and then there’s the more modern grey and black tones that the councils accept and clients prefer because they match their existing homes…”
