Granny Flats

Achieve Your Dream Home with Granny Flats

With the cost of buying your first home becoming further out of reach for the average Victorian, people are now looking at alternative avenues to achieve the ‘great Australian dream’ for themselves and/or their children.

Perhaps the parents/grandparents are getting to an age where they still want & can maintain some independence but for security & peace of mind, the rest of the family may want to have them closer. Maybe a teenage/young adult of the family is studying & would like their own space but cannot yet afford to go out on their own. Family members with special needs, requiring them to be closer to their support network, but still needing some independence of their own.

Whatever your family situation, a granny flat may just be the perfect solution for you & your loved ones.

It can seem a little overwhelming if you’ve never considered granny flats (dependent persons’ units) before, and let’s face it, not many of us would have until we are seriously considering it, but that’s where Todd Devine Homes can help you make this journey seamless.

We can tailor your granny flat especially to your needs. Whether that be to disability standards such as ramps and wider doorways or simply to personalise your new home with a floorplan that reflects your needs. We can even design the granny flat to suit with a choice of facades to compliment the main dwelling. You are really only limited to your imagination & budget.

In some cases, a planning permit is required and Todd Devine Homes can assist with this process. In these cases, the planning application fee will be required upfront for Todd Devine Homes to lodge & manage the application through council. Planning applications can take anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months or more.

On average, construction of a standard design granny flat takes between 12-14 weeks, depending on weather factors and site conditions. Your site supervisor will let you know of updates on the project’s timeline. If you’ve engaged Todd Devine Homes to complete your connection of services, the connection of water, electricity, stormwater & sewerage will be completed during this stage also.

From the initial enquiry, right up to hand over the friendly, the caring staff at Todd Devine Homes are with you every step of the way. We can manage the entire process for you – rest easy and focus on family, & fun stuff like interior colours, finishes & floor coverings. Everything that make a house your home.

If you’re wondering how you can bring your family closer & provide the right home at the right time don’t hesitate to give the sales team at Todd Devine Homes a call on 03 9720 1686 or visit us at our display at 816 Mountain Hwy. Bayswater. We’re open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm.

  • Bob and I would like to thank you for our beautiful new home

    Demolishing and republishing which we thought would be daunting, was made so much easier when we were recommended to go through your company. We asked and you delivered!

    In particular, we would like to thank James for his expert advise - Scott Tobias who has been exceptionally helpful to us when we didn't understand certain aspects and promptly addressed any issues that we encountered - and Pat who managed our account with great skill( I am sure it was a challenge at times!)

    Once again many thank Todd and we will be use that happy to be a reference for your company.
