Having guests stay over can be a stressful, but ultimately rewarding endeavour. After all, with many people leading busy lives it can be nice to have some friends or family stay in your house for a couple of nights. The trouble is that there is often not really a lot of room to move, with many people struggling to justify keeping a spare guest room free when there are so many other purposes that room could be used for. That is why more and more people are turning to granny flat kits for an easy solution to their guest room problems.

What Is A Granny Flat Kit?

Granny flat kits are sort of like flatpack furniture where you know what the finished product will look like, and you have all the materials to build it, you just need to assemble it yourself. However, granny flat kits are much more customisable than most flatpack furniture you will find, and there are ones that come furnished and with extra space and ones that are budget-friendly and minimalistic in nature. If you want to use the space for a study or, as is most often the case, a spare guest room, then granny flat kits are perfect.

Can You Build It Yourself?

Unless you are a licensed construction worker, then odds are you will not be allowed to assemble the granny flat kits when they arrive. However, construction crews love getting jobs like these because it is very simple and the whole building is erected in a flash. This also means you save on labour costs, as well as on the total costs of the building because you sourced all the materials from one place. That is why granny flat kits are becoming more and more popular across Australia, and why you should consider them instead of renovating or adding costly home extensions. 

An Added Benefit

In addition to being a great place for family friends and guests to stay, a granny flat can also be a great source of income through websites like Airbnb. All you have to do is meet certain basic requirements, such as a safety inspection, and your granny flat can start being used by travellers looking for a bargain on their journey. This earns you a bit of money for no real extra effort, and the risk you take on is very minimal. Granny flats also increase the overall property value if you ever think about selling, and all in all, are a great investment in your future.
