Want to increase your income? Build a (sustainable) Granny Flat.

Granny Flats provide flexibility for different stages of your life by being a smart and cost-effective addition to your existing property. Whether they are used as an art studio, home office, guest room or actual granny flat, they have been a popular solution all over Australia for maximising the value of your property and for gaining extra income.

The latest changes of regulations in Queensland present land owners with new opportunities to further increase the value of their properties. To provide solutions for the ever-increasing demand for affordable housing all over the country, Ipswich City council now allows land owners to build granny flats and rent them out separately, drastically increasing rental yield.

The Ipswich City Council is currently the first and only council in Queensland to allow these types of dwellings for investment purposes, but given the affordable housing situation across the Sunshine State, more councils could follow the lead sooner than later.

DSGNK’s awarded Granny Flat provides a perfect example on how a smart and cost-effective design not only increases the value of your property, but also compliments the existing dwelling to achieve the most efficient outcome for the entire site.

If you are thinking of building a new granny flat or renovating an existing one, now is the right time. Let’s discuss how DSGNK can assist you in utilising your property the best way possible.
