Two-bedroom granny flat requirements
Two-bedroom granny flats require more space than one-bedroom granny flats. The size you can build your granny flat is determined by the size of your house’s lot. When building a granny flat, the lot must be subdivided between the granny flat and the house. Suburbs are assigned density codes, with lower density codes requiring more space for subdivision. You can read about residential codes, including density requirements, here. Granny flats must get planning, building and council approval in order to be built.
What are the benefits of a two-bedroom granny flat?
Two-bedroom granny flats benefit from being more spacious than one-bedroom granny flats, while still using space economically. Due to this increase in space, a two-bedroom granny flat provides greater freedom in how you can utilise it. More rooms make them more effective guesthouses than one-bedroom granny flats. If you’re renting the building out, you can target a larger demographic of renters. Larger decks and outdoor areas can also be added on as features that will increase the property’s value.
Two-bedroom granny flat designs
A two-bedroom granny flat design features two separate bedrooms whilst the kitchen and living room occupy an open space, and the bathroom and laundry are separate. They can also have an outdoor area or deck. Two-bedroom granny flats work with more space, meaning their designs can range from simple to more complex.
