Have you ever attended a home improvement seminar and left feeling overwhelmed? The crowds, information overload, sleazy salesman and lack of good food choices are enough to make even the most ambitious people turn away.
Building a granny flat is a significant investment, one which can be confusing and challenging for the inexperienced. As part of our ongoing commitment to empowering homeowners, we’re offering seminars to help you understand how a granny flat is built.
From council obligations to finance, design, construction and style trends, we’re sharing practical experience and knowledge to help you make confident, well-informed decisions.
Ready to start your granny flat journey? Here are just a few of the amazing things you can expect from our seminars.
Difficult Topics, Made Simple
There is a lot of information about granny flats on the internet which is extremely complex and difficult to follow. Sometimes it can feel like it’s all just too hard. With all the jargon and council regulations, building permits and so forth, you might feel like you’re ready to give up.
But there is no need to stress! We’ve made it simple for you. At our free seminars, we’ll break down the jargon, outline the processes in layman’s terms, and make the difficult topics easier for you to understand. We’ll also cover a range of topics, so you can see how all the dots connect and what the process is like from start to finish.
Some of the topics we’ll cover include:
- The financial implications of building a granny flat
- Council obligations for building granny flats on your property
- Compliance for using your granny flat as a rental
- The granny flat building process
- Costs associated with the build
- Parties involved that may be receiving a Centrelink benefit
- Case studies proving what can be achieved in your granny flat, and how complications can be overcome
- Information for first homeowners
- Practical information for seniors
- Q&A at the end of the seminar that will provide one-on-one feedback
Guest Speakers, Goodie Bags & More!
While we may be the experts when it comes to all things granny flats, we do understand that there are some topics we don’t know everything about. Which is why we’re inviting some of our trusted industry connections to be guest speakers.
We believe it’s better to have information delivered by an expert in the industry than to hear misleading information from people who are “trying to do it all”. We will be inviting the best of the best to speak at our seminars so you can directly ask the experts all your burning questions, and receive the best advice available to you.
On arrival, you can also expect tea and coffee, as well as a goodie bag for you to take home!
Enjoy an Intimate Setting
We’re sure you can agree with us when we say that large crowds at seminars are a stressful nightmare (not to mention the parking situation!). At our free seminars, we want you to enjoy an intimate setting where you can ask questions and soak up all the information on offer. So we have decided to cap our events at just 12 guests. We want to be able to talk with you one-on-one, understand your needs and have you leave feeling confident with the information we have provided you.
VIP Tour Experience – Tailored to your needs!
Enjoy the complete VIP Experience at our free seminars with a guided tour through our granny flat display home with our Managing Director, Allan Stroud, who will be available to answer any of your questions during the tour.
