Have you considered building a granny flat?

By Kevin Kelly

Making additions to your real estate in Bunbury is a great way to help rise the property's value while also increasing your own use of the house. 

One interesting renovation that some people partake in is building a granny flat. These spaces can be useful in a number of different ways.

For example, if you're hoping to earn a little extra income on the side, renting out your granny flat could be just the thing you're looking for. These units are self-contained with their own bathroom, kitchen and bedrooms, providing your tenants with all the privacy of a regular home. 

These features also make them perfect for ageing relatives who need to have a degree of supervision, but aren't ready for retirement care. A granny flat offers your loved ones autonomy while also keeping them within reach in case they need aid. 

Finally, making the unit into a hobby space or home office could be another option to consider. This is especially useful if you work from home and regularly take meetings, allowing you to create your own work building while keeping your private home separate.
