Reasons to consider building a granny flat in Sydney
There are plenty of great reasons for you to consider building a granny flat on your property. Some of the advantages and benefits why you could consider building a granny flat include:
Compact yet comfortable, a granny flat often makes for a viable living option for relatives and in-laws if you want to keep your family close but not under the same roof. Whether you want to provide a comfortable place for your parents to retire or want to give your growing kids a sense of independence while still having them near you, a granny flat is a great choice.
If you often have friends and relatives visit, a granny flat can offer them a place to stay. Instead of booking an expensive hotel, your guests can simply make themselves at home in your granny flat for the duration of their stay.
Renting out your granny flat is a great way to facilitate an extra income stream. At Smart Choice Granny Flats, we have a range of contemporary granny flat plans that are perfect for attracting potential tenants.
Since 2012 our team have built over 500 Granny Flats. We have spent the last 8 years perfecting our passion.
We hold strong values and respect the trust you invest in us, that is why we only use Housing Industry Association Contracts which are designed to protect your interests, offering peace of mind.

Contemporary granny flat designs to suit the Australian lifestyle
At Smart Choice Granny Flats, we believe that the modern granny flat should look and feel like a home. Our designs are aesthetically pleasing inside and out, reflecting modern design trends and architectural styles. Even if you are choosing to build a granny flat as an extra guest house and know that it will not become someone’s long-term home, we ensure that every single project we complete is executed to the highest standards of quality. This is why we have a reputation as the expert granny flat builders you can trust.
Select one of our granny flat designs or customise your own
While we are proud to offer a versatile range of granny flat designs, from studios to four-bedroom plans, we also understand that everyone’s needs and requirements are different. Depending on the granny flat’s purpose, the size of the land and your location, you may want to look at different options that go beyond our available catalogue of granny flat designs. If that’s the case, then we would be more than happy to work with you on designing your very own unique, tailor-made granny flat.
On the other hand, if you’re not too sure where to start when it comes to designing your own granny flat, feel free to choose one of our existing designs from our collection. Each of these pre-existing designs can be customised too, and you can personalise details — such as the fittings, tiles, and the outer facade — that are more suited to your personal preference.
Deciding on the size of your granny flat.
How big can a granny flat be? Every state in Australia has different laws when it comes to the size of granny flats. If you’re considering building a cheap granny flat with Smart Choice Granny Flats, make sure you check your state laws and local council regulations first.
The cost to build a granny flat
How much does a granny flat cost? This is a very important and valid question, but there are many different things to take into consideration when working out the cost of building a granny flat. The state of your property’s land, the size of the granny flat and whether or not you want a custom design are all factors you need to consider when it comes to the cost of your granny flat.

“Smart Choice Granny Flats delivered us a beautiful 2 storey granny flat. I knew nothing about granny flats when I first spoke to Faraj at Smart Choice Granny Falts. He helped me through the whole design process suggesting what was best for our site. We then had the fantastic builder Stuart Ferguson who made sure everything went to plan. At all times through the process the office staff, especially Chris and Suzanne were prompt and courteous replying to my questions. The end result is outstanding and complements the space available. Being two storeys it means the tenants have much more land available for their BBQ and outdoor furniture. The tenant moved in the day after the occupancy certificate was issued paying $650 per week. Even the real state agent wanted to move into the stunning Granny Flat created and built by Smart Choice Granny Flats. I would definitely use Smart Choice Granny Flats again.”Elizabeth
