The Advantages Of Granny Flats

By: Neil Baulch

The economy is not what it once was and many people are now faced with what they have to do to care for their parents. Bank accounts can no longer absorb the fee of an expensive retirement home and people are being forced to move their parents in with them. Instead of losing your privacy, think about using Granny Flats to give your parents their own place, but have them in your home at the same time.
Granny Flats are pretty much everything that they sound like. They are small prefabricated homes (in most cases, but kits are also available) that you are ready to drop into a location for someone to live in. Most backyards will provide more than enough space to have this new dwelling plopped right down.
If the backyard home is going to have several people living in it, upgrades are available that will allow a little more space and some more creature comforts. A model very similar to the "Willow" is available for an additional $7,000 and they continue to go up in price from there. While this is only one model, there are plenty more to choose from.
Some people may want to actually build their own and you will have no problem for choices to do so. These Granny Flats are a little more expensive, but they are much larger and will create a more comfortable environment for anyone living in them. If someone has special needs, this can also be accommodated with these special kits.
Granny Flats give true value for the money because for all intents and purposes, they are ready to move into the moment that they are put down. There is no need to look for doors, windows or bathroom furnishings because everything is in there. After you fill up the fridge and put a sofa in there, you are ready to watch the football games!
While they hold the name "Granny Flats", these little creations can be used for much more than just giving your elderly mother a place to live. You can give your just turned 18 year old a little privacy or create a guest cottage for future visitors. Not only that, but you may decide to plop one down on that piece of land that you own out by the lake. After all, it will cost you a lot less that having someone build you a home from scratch.
