Whether you are considering to boosting your property’s value, or are in need of lodging for a family member, or even just looking to build a private den for yourself or your wife, it will definitely be worth it to add a granny flat to your property.manor-house-1638766_1280.jpg

 

 

 

Many people might be considering or longing to do something like this in the corner of their garden but are not sure if they should. This is specifically needed, with teenager’s that want to be independent, in-laws or family that want to come visit regularly, or just as a private place to work or relax and be on your own.

Reasons for adding a granny flat to your property

With aging parents

By building a garden suite or granny flat in your yard, you can promote independent living for individuals that are older, which may be a perfect option for parents that live with you. Retirement homes with their high prices make it very difficult for most families to afford. With a granny flat, it can allow individuals that age to maintain independence, but it can also provide help when it may be needed.

 

Property that can provide additional income

With a granny flat or garden suite, it can provide you with a supplement that is excellent for your current income. This additional income might even help to pay part of your mortgage, or can be added to any savings or investments you may have. Plus, it may even give you a bigger income when the kids are out of the house, as you can move into the flat and rent out the main house.

 

For grown children

With the job market today that is so unpredictable, plus living costs that are so very high, you as parents may be able to assist your college grads, or newlywed kids to make a start in life. They can easily live independently and save some money for a house at a later stage. You may allow them to live there at no cost or for a minimal fee, which will help them to get financially ahead in life.house-1317992_1280.jpg

 

 

 

Work area

This is also perfect for a space to perform your hobbies or as an office at home. It can be ideally fitted with large windows and doors to let in enough daylight and fresh air. Being built in the corner of the garden, it can add an incredible feature that will enhance your property’s appearance and increase the value at the same time. Plus, it’s workspace that is available to you with solitude and privacy to be more productive and to enjoy what you are doing.

 

A tasteful and well-constructed flat or suite can actually separate your house and make it stand out within the area you live if you decide to sell. Especially, when it forms part of your garden and is featuring a lot of glass, like big windows, and sliding glass doors that provide an open space filled with light. Buyers will immediately see the benefits of such a building for parents, grown children or even a private working area.

 

Before you make your final decision about adding a granny flat or suite, it is wise to contact a professional that knows of all the necessary laws that must be met before building it. They can also give you advice about the best features and where to erect the building. Remember, that except for increasing the value of your property, it will also provide you with years of exceptional use, extra living space, workspace, or space for some fun.

 

You could also opt for a glass porch enclosure if you are only looking for a bit of extra space for work or your hobbies. See more on glass porch enclosures here: http://www.skywindowsnj.com/glass-porch-enclosure-four-unique-advantages/

 


Good topic.  Been discussed lots of times before and there are as many negative aspects as there are positive.
