Step 1: The process is simple, let us know what you are looking for
First, we’ll chat about what you would like to achieve and determine any specific requirements you might have. From there, we’ll take you through our range of granny flats and kit homes and you can decide which one you like the best. We will then discuss your floor plan and any customisations that may be required based on your specific requirements.
At this stage, you may wish to visit one of our displays or come in to speak with us in person.
Step 2: Floor plans, customisations and quotation
Based on your requirements we have determined your floor plan and any customisation that maybe required. We will then provide you with a detailed written quotation along with a payment schedule for you to review.
Once you have reviewed the quotation and are happy to proceed, we will ask you to sign and return the quotation to us.
Up until this stage, there is no cost to you.
Step 3: Building Site Assessment
At this stage, we will perform a building site assessment to determine if there are any planning or building permit implications that may effect your site. Once completed the report will be sent to you highlighting any considerations that may need to be taken into account.
A non - refundable payment of $399.00 is required to undertake the building site assessment, however this payment will be deducted from the total price quoted, should you proceed with the purchase.
Step 4: Documentation and engineering payment
Once we have determined that there will be no issues placing the granny flat or kit home on your proposed site, we will issue you with a tax invoice for the agreed sum.
An initial, non-refundable deposit of $5,000 is required to commence work on plans, engineering drawings, basix, and energy rating certificates (all of which will be required for you to obtain your building permit).
This deposit is included in the price quoted and will be deducted from the outstanding balance.
Step 5: Council and Permits
We provide you will all the relevant documentation and information to enable a building permit to be issued.
You will need to apply through the Council to obtain the relevant permits.
Alternatively, you can engage an Independent Building Surveyor/Certifier who can also issue relevant permits.
If you are pressed for time, then we would highly recommend hiring an Independent Building Surveyor as they have the ability to accelerate the process.
Step 6: Manufacturing
Once your permits have been received, we will require 50% of the remaining balance of your invoice to start the manufacturing process.
We will keep you posted throughout the duration of production, and if there are any changes regarding the estimated time of completion for your granny flat or kit home, we’ll let you know.
Once manufacturing is complete, we’ll contact you for the final amount which is to be paid prior to delivery.
Step 7: Delivery
Delivery usually occurs from your closest capital city.
Transport costs are included in your initial quote, unless you opt to arrange your own transportation.
Typically, the kit homes and granny flats are transported within 20' or 40' containers for ease of transportation and protection of materials.
These containers can be purchased and used as secure storage on site then later sold.
Step 8: Assembly
Assembly of your new granny flat or kit home can be completed by yourself as an Owner Builder saving you even more money.
Alternatively, you could engage a registered builder to complete the assembly for you.
We have a large database of qualified builders for you to choose from if you would like assistance.
