Multi-generational Livinggrandparents, teens, studio space

Successful multi-generational living allows extended families to stay together while retaining privacy and independence. Whether you are caring for ageing parents or have adult children living at home, a backyard granny flat represents the perfect balance of connection and separation.

Keep ageing parents nearby

As our population ages, and concerns grow about the quality of our aged care facilities, many families are looking for ways to keep ageing parents close. A granny flat allows your parents to retain their independence, while giving you the comfort of knowing they are right next door if they need your support.

Allow grandparents to care for the kids

With the cost of childcare straining the finances, many families look to grandparents to provide care for the children. A backyard granny flat enables grandparents to have their own lives, enabling convenient care for the kids.

Give independence to adult children living at home

The ever increasing cost of housing in Australia has meant more and more adult children continuing to live in the family home while they study or save for their own home. A granny flat is a great way to balance your children’s need for ongoing residential support, with your own need to regain your privacy and independence.

Give teenagers the space they crave

A backyard granny flat is also a great space for teenagers to flex their independence yet stay within parental oversight. As a longer term investment, the granny flat approach also provides rental options once your teens have moved on. (If they ever move on ! )
