We at 5 Star Granny Flats are the reputed designers and granny flat builders. We know the importance of the preliminary design stage when your granny flat begins to take some shape. It is crucial to work with the builder at the granny flat design stage because:
1. The Design Matters
Always start a housing project for a small house or a granny flat with clear ideas about your requirements. A builder shows you the standard design to initiate your thinking process and gives form to your ideas about the granny flat. You have the option of either modifying it to suit your needs or custom design it to match your dream house.
2. You Can Analyse Whether Your Builder Is Professional
You never sign a contract at the preliminary stage. When a builder visits your site, they listen to your ideas, requirements, budget, etc. Based on this information, they put forth some ideas for your consideration and tell you what is feasible and what is not. They also provide a ballpark figure for building the granny flat. You must be alert to know whether they agree to everything you say or arent interested in listening to you. Professional granny flat builders will always be attentive and proactive in their approach.
3. Include the Installations and Features You Need and Prefer
It is necessary to mention about all the major and minor features and installations that you want in the structure. Set down clearly what you do not want. At this stage, you discuss the room arrangements, measurements, and provision to make any changes later. At this stage, you need to decide the position of the entrance to your house or the granny flat.
4. The Budget Aspect
While you are in dialogue with your granny flat builder, you learn more about the stages of the construction project. You can gauge how realistic your expectations are and whether they synchronise with your budget. Never forget to decide the timeline for the project and the consequences of missing it.
5. Get a Good Virtual Presentation of your New Home
Your builder can give you a presentation of the preliminary design of your new home. It provides a visual idea about:
- Budgeted costs
- A view of your final house with rooms etc
- Demarcation of places like the kitchen, pantry bathrooms, and more
Working with the builder at this stage helps them give you a fixed price quote and provide you a practical and customised solution.
