Your Backyard Solution

Is a Backyard Bungalow

Your Solution?

Why have one home when you can have two?

Deciding on your home extension solution can be a confusing and drawn out ordeal; do you move, build up, build out…?  At Lifestyle Granny Flats, we aim to take the hassle out of the process.  We will sit down with you to discuss all of your family’s needs and propose the best solution for you.  As a division of Total Lifestyle Builders, we can help if an extension or renovation is a better option than a granny flat. No matter what your reason for wanting a granny flat, the underlying objective should be to secure more value on your home. To prevent yourself from being disappointed or wasting your hard earned money with a cheap alternative that doesn’t meet your needs, our range of high quality granny flats are the best investment.

Use your spare land to bring in rental income

A large backyard can be a great investment opportunity.  With the rental market at capacity, there are many people looking for affordable rental properties.  Depending on the layout of your block, building a backyard bungalow to rent out may be a smart decision.  For a relatively low cost, you can be receiving a regular income from previously unused space. It’s the easiest way to get into the investment market and take a short-cut to financial freedom. Best still, you have the added convenience of earning income from your backyard. Consider the Lodge or the Manor for one and two bedroom fully self-contained granny flats.

Study not quite cutting it as a home office?

Working from home has many benefits: flexible environment, more time with the kids, financial benefits, no commute… It also comes with some problems: no distinction between home time and work time, constant interruptions, not enough dedicated space. Consider a Lifestyle Granny Flat.  With a range of designs which can be adjusted to suit your specific requirements, we can tailor a solution for you.  One or two bedrooms easily become one or two offices, a staff kitchen area, and a welcoming space for clients to visit are some of the simple changes which our design team are happy to discuss.  But most importantly, you leave work and go home each evening – relaxing in a family space, not your office.


Kids have left school but not quite ready to leave home?

The high cost of living has made it very difficult for young adults and University students to take that first step towards independence. A Lifestyle Granny Flat provides the answer.  A separate space for them to live in will give your students the freedom and independence they would like while cutting down the costs of living away from home.  Check out the Manor for a great one or two bedroom option for the perfect teenage retreat, it even has a laundry so no reason for them to ask Mum to do their washing!

Elderly Parents?

With increasing costs and concerns over the quality of aged care, your own granny flat provides the space to keep your parents close by without encroaching on anyone’s privacy and independence.  A great option for retirement living. Our specialist design team knows exactly what needs to be considered when creating a space for seniors.  Details such as:

  • Large doorways
  • Functional, easy to maintain kitchen
  • Large bathrooms with flush floors
  • Easy access to the main house

All essential details when considering a granny flat for elderly parents.

Regular visitors and a guest room isn’t enough?

With families spread out all over the globe, regular (and sometimes long term) visitors are a familiar experience for many of us.  While a guest room may do the trick, imagine being able to provide your visitors with a spacious, private guest retreat.  With room to spread out, their own bathroom, kitchen and living space, it gives everyone that extra space to enjoy the stay while not getting in each other’s hair.
