One of the greatest ideas, when it comes to putting your large garden space to good use, is building granny flats. Here are a few reasons as to why you should consider building a granny flat if you’ve got the space!
If you have an ample amount of backyard space that’s simply sitting around and requires constant maintenance with absolutely no purpose, why not turn it into a means of income? Building a granny flat allows you to rent the extra space out to small families, young or old couples, etc thus bringing you a source of rental income.
This income could in turn help you pay out loans and mortgages. And all new and modern looking granny flat makes it more attractive and easier to rent as it is in top condition and all ready to live in. Before renting out, keep in mind means of privacy and comfort for both you as well as the renters.
Whether it’s your own family visiting from afar or tourists looking for an appropriate paid accommodation, inspiring homes and granny flats can make for a great guest house. Alongside giving your guests the privacy, they need, it also allows them to relax and enjoy the presence of their space rather than being all crammed under a single roof. However, this means that you’ll have to adjust the purpose and needs of your granny flat in order to provide and meet the usual guest house requirements.
