Benefits of Attached Granny Flats / Minor Dwellings

An attached minor dwelling is an ideal living solution for an extended family wanting have all the benefits of living under the one roof while still enjoying separate living spaces and privacy.

Benefits of homes with attached minor dwellings include:

  • Greater economy and affordability.
  • Improved security.
  • Flexible lifestyle options including childminding, supervision and assistance.
  • Cost-effectiveness of the initial build.
  • Enhanced resale value.

Attached Minor Dwellings Home Builders

Stroud Homes New Zealand has special expertise in designing and building homes with attached minor dwellings. The best feature of these house designs is how they integrate with the overall home. From the outside you wouldn’t even notice the house contains a separate dwelling.

Attached minor dwellings are designed to integrate seamlessly with most of our house designs. By altering the orientation of the granny flat you can either maximise privacy or increase interaction between the occupants.

The additional living space provided by a minor dwelling can be oriented so that the living areas of both dwellings face each other, or mirrored so that the occupants each have their own entryways and enjoy greater privacy.

Minor dwellings can feature an open patio or the delightful cafe dining option. With three sets of sliding doors you can easily switch from open air al fresco dining to enclosed comfort.

(Note: minor dwelling add-ons are not available for all Stroud Homes house plans and are subject to local council planning requirements.)


More About Granny Flats

Minor dwellings or granny flats create added space and extra privacy, plus it really is rather ‘cool’ for a teenager to have his/her own separate living area. They are self-contained living spaces within the grounds of a larger family home and are usually designed for one or two people. They are normally detached from the main residence.

Another benefit is the added security of having someone else living on the property; it is more likely to act as a deterrent to potential burglars than a single residence with all the lights off.

Quality Minor Dwelling Design and Construction

As a trusted local builder, we put just as much care into building minor dwellings as we do to the main home. That means you get the same level of quality and experience, the same dedication and customer-focus and the same reliability and guarantees for delivery.
