Multigenerational living is on the rise as families look for housing solutions to cater for all generations. Granny flats not only provide much needed space and privacy but also have many other benefits.

Some examples of where multigenerational housing could be considered are if you have parents or grandparents who are wanting to downsize so they can travel or retire, or even if you are looking for separate accommodation for teenagers or young adults.

Building a granny flat can also house elderly or infirmed family members who need to be close to family for care but are not ready to go into aged care facilities or retirement villages.

Granny flats are a great choice for multigenerational living as they offer the comfort of being around family as well as providing everyone with their own space and privacy. You can even separate the two houses by fencing and garden beds to create your own peaceful retreat.  This way each home has their own bathrooms, kitchens, living spaces and bedrooms so you are not living in each other’s pockets.

Granny flats can be customised to suit your needs and are created to comply with council conditions and government regulations. They can also add value to your property. They can be built on site locally in Brisbane and Moreton Bay and also pre-built and transported to rural and regional Queensland areas.

There are many benefits of multigenerational living that will positively impact all family members. Financially this is great option as it can ease financial burdens with bills and expenses being shared. Having relatives in such close proximity can also assist with other needs such as child care, pet sitting or house sitting giving you peace of mind. As you share one property you can also share property maintenance costs.
