Our Process


Where Do We Start

Once you have decided to move forward with an East Coast Granny Flats & Small Homes project and we have ascertained that your property will meet the preliminary council requirements, it is time to take the next step towards the construction process.

 To get started we follow a 5 step process:

  1. We encourage viewing one of our already established Granny Flats to get an idea on style, space and workmanship.

  2. A visit to your property to discuss designs and location options.

  3. Our plumber and electrician visit your property to ascertain any excavation work that may be required.

  4. Essential Energy and Geotech is contacted to receive reports and approval.

  5. We produce a single quote for you that will include trades, construction and finishes. That means no hidden extras!

East Coast Granny Flats & Small Homes Construction Process is typically 4 months from

contract signing to presenting the keys.

With an extensive list of inclusions with every Granny Flat or Small Home everything is taken care of so all you need to do is move in!

Preliminary Works Begin

  • Upon signing a HIA builders contract, we draft the final floor plan and development of engineering begins.

  • Surveyor and our consultants attend your property and conduct the relevant site investigations and analysis.

  • Council application is developed and submitted in accordance with council requirements. 

  • Once approval has been obtained, we are ready to order materials and commence construction of your project.

Construction Begins

Once we are ready to start construction you will find things start to move much more quickly. While every Granny Flat or Small Home is individual our timeline is typically as follows:

  • 1 - 2 weeks to get the wall and roof panels cut an delivered to site

  • 3 weeks to lock up

  • 8 weeks for interiors (tiling, flooring, kitchen, bathroom, electricals, plumbing, painting).
