If you’re thinking about a home remodeling project, it’s important to consider your benefits and needs for a particular room. And, if someday you want to sell your home; understanding which home remodeling projects increase value could pay off later.
One of the most important additions you can add to your home is the granny flat. In today’s post, Marrokal Design and Remodeling explains what it is.
What’s a Granny Flat
A granny flat was originally a space dedicated to seniors and elderly, usually as a separate but complete “house” on your property. These days, however, granny flats, despite their name, are used for more than just housing grandparents. Some use granny flats as a space that can be rented out to students or your adult children.
What Are the Benefits of a Granny Flat?
When it comes to home additions for large families, granny flats are especially useful. They typically have a mini kitchen in them and, if connected to the main home, they might have a separate entrance to the granny flat. Homeowners can use their granny flats to generate extra income. You can even get tax breaks and save more money overall.
Another benefit is that it improves the value of your home. You can modify a granny flat to increase the resale value of the entire property. This is good business sense as granny flats typically pay for themselves in about five years.
How Can You Make It Work?
Consider what’s important to you and then find experts to discuss the intricacies of building a granny flat. Without the right design-build process, the project might end up costing valuable time and more money than you’re prepared to spend.
