As your family grows and accumulates belongings, your house can become cramped and uncomfortable. When we choose to buy a first home, we usually don’t take the long-term future into account because additional space costs more than we can afford. If you’ve found that you’ve outgrown your home but you don’t want to lose the location and lifestyle that you love, building a transportable home in your backyard may be the answer. 

The Benefits of Building a Portable Granny Flat

The benefits of building a granny flat on your existing property are endless. You can make the most of your backyard by creating a comfortable, self-contained addition that allows you to stay in the home that you love. Building a granny flat also adds market value to your existing property so that if you choose to move in the future, you can expect a higher asking price.

Building a granny flat gives you many options on how you’d like to use the space. The transportable home can double as a portable office, teenager’s retreat, holiday home for friends and extended family, or extra space to focus on your hobbies. You will be able to expand your existing property and make room for the future of your family.
