Granny flats are becoming a popular housing solution in Perth due to the recent slump in housing affordability, which doesn’t seem likely to improve in the near future. Some Perth families are finding that it is cheaper to build a granny flat in their backyard for their elderly parents as opposed to sending them to retirement villages; and young couples who can’t afford to enter the housing market are also turning to granny flats on their parents’ properties as a way to get their foot in the door for the future. Granny flats are a great option for an office for your home-based business or just to rent out as an extra source of income, not to mention a value adder for your property.
As a respected WA home builder, Great Living Homes offers a selection of granny flat designs or we can assist you to create one that suits your block and existing home. Our granny flat plans can be viewed by clicking on the appropriate design on our website, or by contacting our friendly and knowledgeable building consultant. Great Living Homes are one of few WA builders offering 2 storey granny flat designs which we build using our unique Fastbuild technology. We build our granny flats on site with a concrete slab the same as we would with a house, whereas the majority of granny flat builders use kits which are transported to site and then assembled. However, should you not want a concrete slab or prefer to use different materials for your home we are flexible and can cater to your needs.
As with all of our houses, Great Living Homes build good quality granny flats using strong, resilient materials and we take into account any council requirements such as wind ratings, bushfire attack levels and coastal conditions. Our 2 storey granny flats are very popular because they are compliant with council size regulations, yet they provide secure car parking and are more spacious than a standard granny flat.
Included in the price of all of our granny flats is a 20 year structural warranty, full painting inside and out, tiling to all wet areas, electrical and phone points, custom made cabinets, insulation to walls and ceilings, Dowell windows and fly screens, 600mm stainless steel appliances, Colorbond roofing, gutters and downpipes, verandah paving (and driveway paving if applicable) and all building license fees and working drawings.
So whether you are looking to build a granny flat for a loved family member or you are just interested in improving the value of your property, the Great Living Homes team can help you achieve your goals. Call now to speak with our building consultant who can answer any questions you may have and get your project underway!

The Palace Granny Flat
The Palace Granny Flat contains 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a kitchen, a living room and a dining room, as well as an undercover carport. The photo above is one we have previously built for a client who opted to have cement surrounding the granny flat however we do include paving to the driveway and verandah with this design. The owner was ecstatic with the final result! The photo to the left is an artist impression of our design.
The Grand Palace Granny Flat
We also have a 2 storey version of the Palace design called The Grand Palace which is our most striking granny flat design. The Grand Palace features a double remote-controlled garage, a laundry, bathroom and store room on the ground floor and located upstairs are 2 bedrooms, another bathroom, a kitchen as well as dining and living areas which spill out to the balcony. That’s right, a balcony! This is luxury granny flat living!

Extremely well built homes. Supervisor Frank was very accommodating and helpful throughout the build process. Thanks to Great Living Homes team.
It was a very pleasant experience building with Great Living Homes. Whenever we required any clarification or information the numerous people we have dealt with over the duration of the build were very knowledgeable, courteous and prompt. The tradesmen were all very pleasant as well. Thanking you all again for a very pleasant experience and we would not hesitate recommending Great Living Homes.

Great Living have provided exceptional & professional service in the past week. With the shortest turnaround possible, I have been amazed at how quickly things were resolved and took a massive stress off me with selling the house amongst the many other things going on at the moment. I fear most home builder companies would take months to do what you were able to do in a week and I am forever grateful. It shows how good a builder is with the service they provide during and post construction. It gives us no choice and hesitation to strongly consider Great Living Homes as our builder again if we choose to go down that track and also recommend to our friends.
Well the time has come to write the review because our house is finished 🙂 From start to finish, GLH’s has been fantastic to deal with. The admin crew down in Mandurah town, the contractors, Tradesman on site and especially Frank the supervisor. His sharp eye and attention to detail is second to none. We couldn’t have asked for a more smooth and hassle free build from GLH’s. Thanks for designing and building us a beautiful, quality home that we can call our own.
