Granny House - Building

Hi All,

Have been thinking of putting a Granny house in my backyard(for our personal purposes) but i may rent it out later when not in use. Basically a 1 or 2Bedroom basic cottage approx 8sqs of living.

I was wondering if anyone here have built one. How much does it cost? I am in Victoria and visited Victorian Garden Cottages but the very basic designs for 1 Bedroom start from 60K :eek:

Are there any cheaper options??? Any suggestions?

Thanks - Daman.

Does that include site costs, landscaping,driveway etc ?
$60K seems a bit on the high side.

I stayed at the beacon resort at Queenscliff (Mornington peninsula ) this week and they had some nice 2 bedroom cabins. Simple & practical design and low maintenance so it shouldn't be expensive to make.

If you are in the area stop by and have a look, the manufacturer's name should be shown somewhere.

Thx for the link BV
How long would a builder take to construct one of these, say a 3 bedder?

It would vary depending on the builder but I don't think it would take them more than a couple of months plus any time you need for council approval, connection to power grid, sewer etc.
 
Thanks Propertunity and Bill. I am following the other thread with interest as well.

Are you aware of any case where the councils(VIC) are strict about removing the granny flat once its no longer used for dependent housing purposes? Can i be prevented from renting it later on????
