Do you need to find an affordable housing solution for your Parents or Grandparents?
Why not let Versatile Granny Flats help you to build a lovely new modular home for your elderly relative/s?
We will ensure that your granny flat, modular home is built to the highest standard and is well insulated to save on the cost of power when heating and cooling. We will have the building designed taking into account the possibility of future mobility issues and will ensure that we work within your budget without any hidden costs to worry about later.
We believe that building granny flats, modular homes for the elderly is a win-win situation for all concerned. We all know how difficult it can be when you have to travel considerable distances to check-in on your elderly loved ones. There are many doctor’s appointments that they need to be driven to and then every time there is a family occasion someone has to drive to pick the Grandparents up.
By building a granny flat, modular home to house elderly loved ones you are increasing the value of your property whilst providing a safe and loving environment for your Parents, Grandparents or In-Laws to live in. Children benefit from having regular contact with Grandparents and caregivers save a lot of time not having to pick them up before driving them to various different appointments.
There are many other benefits to having Loved One’s close by, not to mention having someone to provide a little love for the pets while you’re away on holidays. It really is a win-win situation for all parties.
Versatile Granny Flats are proud supporters of The Australian Cancer Research Foundation. We encourage you to help support ACRF, please view the link to see the wonderful work they are doing to help find cures for cancer.
As a family we have watched loved one’s struggle to battle cancer and have suffered the loss of loved one’s over the years. This is why research into a cure for a variety of different cancer’s is very important to us.
We know that most people, if they haven’t suffered some form of cancer themselves, have known someone that has or still is battling this terrible disease. We decided to do what we could to help those that are trying to find a cure. So we make donations to The Australian Cancer Research Foundation on behalf of our Clients.
Versatile Granny Flats offer a FREE Site Inspection so that we can provide our prospective Clients with an accurate written quote for their new building project. During this meeting we will sit down with you and discuss exactly what your needs/requirements are, those of the person that is likely to be living in the granny flat and then we will discuss any restrictions that my be placed on the site (easements, flood or fire zone etc). We will measure out the site so that we can advise the best location for the new building and answer any questions that you may have relating to the size the site will accommodate without having to do a DA (Development Application through local council) and we will answer any other questions that you may have regarding the site or the design you have in mind.
Once we have a thorough understanding of your needs and the site conditions, we will provide you with a written quote and a list of inclusions and exclusions so that you understand fully what our costs are. During the free site inspection, we will also discuss what other (variable) costs you may have to take into consideration. The variable fees include the cost of connections from the granny flat to the main services (the cost of connections within the building are included in our base fee), council fees (which vary greatly from council-to-council and may include an S94 fee in addition to a Curb & Gutter Bond), having a Site Survey done and the cost of contracting a Private Certifier in order to gain Building Approval, a Construction Certificate and an Occupancy Certificate once the building is complete (we are able to make these arrangements for you).
Once we have completed the free site inspection and provided you with an accurate quote, you are then able to make an informed decision regarding your new building project and whether or not Versatile Granny Flats are the right people to help you. We are very competitively priced and provide a superior level of customer services so we certainly hope that you will allow us the opportunity to help you. If however you don’t wish to proceed, we will not keep calling and pressuring you. The idea of the free site inspection is simply to assist prospective clients to know what information they need to gather from each different business that they meet with in order to be able to compare ‘apples-for-apples’ and therefore make an informed decision about their next building project.
Versatile Granny Flats take site safety very seriously. Safety is important to us and we therefore only align ourselves with builders and service providers that also care about providing a safe working environment. We believe that safety on site starts with a clean and tidy workplace and therefore we insist that builders keep our Client job sites clean and tidy at all times. They work tidy and then spend time at the end of each day ensuring that the site is free from any hazard and is left very clean.
We do request that our Clients provide a skip bin for the removal of spoil and rubbish from site. The builders will ensure that all rubbish goes into the skip and they will inform our Client in plenty of time before the skip requires being emptied.
Its also important to remember that by law, the builder is responsible for the site until such time as the building works have been completed. During the construction time (once the granny flat is at lock-up stage), the building will be kept locked at all times when builders are not on site. Whilst we are happy to arrange inspections of the building during construction, we request that our Clients respect the builders responsibility for safety and that they do not enter the construction area without a representative of Versatile Granny Flats or the builder with them. If requested, we will ensure that either our own staff or the builder are available at a time that suits you to inspect the building.
We hope that our Clients appreciate that safety is important to us and that they realise it is for their safety that we make these rules. We also thank those Clients that understand and respect our concern for theirs and the tradesmen’s safety. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
