Building a granny flat on your property – also called an “accessory dwelling unit” (ADU) – could transform how you use your property. This helpful home addition turns your house into two self-contained properties, minimizing contact and allowing groups of people and individuals to live independently.

Everything You Need To Know About Additional Dwelling Units (ADUs)

Granny flats let you transform your current lot into a multi-dwelling site.

There are several different types of granny flats available. These include:

  1. Backyard homes
  2. Garage conversions
  3. Prefabricated ADU
  4. Custom ADU
  5. Junior Accessory Dwelling Unit (JADU)

Backyard homes look like tiny homes, positioned in your backyard. They provide all of the amenities of the main house, such as running water, sleeping areas, kitchens, and heating, but on a much smaller scale. Prefab ADU installation helps to bring down the cost.

Garage conversions are precisely what they sound like: converting your garage into a self-contained unit. As you might expect, the feasibility of this depends on the size and location of your garage. If your garage is an external building, you can often build a room on top and create a maisonette you can then rent out or use to house family members.

Basement conversions are similar. However, these often have a shared access with the main home.

Granny Flat Dwelling UnitA JADU is similar to all of the above. However, they may have a shared bathroom with the rest of the home, and only need to satisfy “efficiency kitchen” requirements.

Lastly, there are extensions. These fit on the side or the back of your home and, just like the other options, are self-contained units. Custom ADU installation lets you design these however you want.

At John Christopher Construction, we have massive experience as ADU contractors. Our team takes care of everything, from the plumbing to the electrics, to create genuine self-contained units for people on your property to use.

What Are The Benefits Of ADU Construction?

The benefits of additional dwelling construction are extraordinary.

For instance, you could:

  • Construct rental units and earn regular passive income from them
  • Build a guest house and rent it out on platforms, such as Airbnb
  • Create a space where friends and family members can stay separately from your main home, giving them more independence during their visit
  • Offer an elderly or disabled relative an independent living space close to your home where you can keep an eye on them
  • Create a separate structure for a business
  • Increase the value of your home

How exactly you want to use your ADU is entirely up to you. Additional living space is ideal when you want to live side by side with someone, but don’t want to tread on each other’s toes.

Granny Flat Licesnsed ProfessionalsGoing to multiple contractors to complete your granny flat project can cause costs to spiral out of control. Hiring the people you need individually means that you’re unable to benefit from the knowledge of a single firm. Furthermore, you often have the additional expense of a site manager to coordinate everyone’s efforts.

When you come to us, though, you avoid this. We manage your entire project on-site for you using our large team of specialist tradespeople. We then pass these savings onto you, allowing you to complete your granny flat on time and on budget.

Electricity And Plumbing Done For You

Many contractors will offer building work, but not electricity and plumbing, usually because they don’t have the necessary licensing and skills. Therefore, to complete your granny flat, you often need to hire additional contractors, which is a massive hassle.

Handyman Pros sidesteps this issue. We have licensed plumbers and electricians in-house, meaning no annoying delays. We fit everything to specification so that you can move in at the earliest possible opportunity.
