Popular Dwelling Solutions for the Extended Family

Ever since 2009 when the Affordable Rental Housing State Environment Planning Policy (SEPP) changed its regulations about the construction of granny flats in NSW, these self contained small houses in the backyard have mushroomed everywhere.

Often referred to as the mother-in-law apartment, these structures are often used to accommodate elderly relatives who find it difficult to live on their own.   
Sometimes the granny flat floor plan is in conjugation with the principle dwelling with a communicating door between them. 

More recently, the granny flat stands alone from the principle dwelling with its own private entrance yet all within the back yard. For people living in the rural areas it is highly recommended that you work as an owner builder since most granny flat construction companies do not travel to the remote regions to take up tasks.
