Posted August 9, 2023 by in Home

Getting old isn’t easy. Living in cramped conditions isn’t either. If you are elderly or do not have a particularly large living space, then perhaps now’s the time to consider investing in a granny flat. Granny flats are large, self-contained living spaces typically located in people’s backyards.

More often than not these living spaces are used exclusively by elderly people. However, just about anybody can buy and use them if they need to. This post will explore them in a lot more detail, explaining why now might be a good time to buy one if you are in need of somewhere to live.

Custom Modular Buildings

You will be pleased to know that you can easily order a custom modular building online. While of course, it’s not as simple as loading a retailer’s website and making a purchase, you can arrange for a granny flat delivery mostly online. The team from Pegasus Modular makes this clear on their website. If you are planning on having a custom modular building constructed, then you need to conduct extensive research and find one with good reviews. A retailer’s reviews can tell you a lot about them and will make the process of deciding whether to work with them or not much easier for you to do.

Bear in mind that in addition to reviews, you should also be looking at what people have had to say about specific companies on forums and on independent guide sites.

Ensuring You Have Space

If you plan on purchasing a granny flat, then you need to make sure that you think about space.  If you do not have enough space in your backyard, then you aren’t going to be able to buy one. The good thing about custom buildings is that you can order them to measure. In other words, you can send the manufacturer specific dimensions and measurements and they will be able to ensure that your building conforms to them.

By doing this you can ensure that your granny flat fits in your backyard. Make sure the measurements sent are accurate, otherwise, your building could end up being too large or too small. If you are not able to take measurements yourself then you can hire a professional to do this for you. Make sure that the person you hire has expertise in taking such measurements.

Giving Yourself Freedom

Typically, granny flats are built in the backyards of family members. If you are living with people and do not have much privacy, you may want to consider investing in a granny flat as it will give you freedom. Of course, you need to obtain the property owner’s permission before you go about setting up a granny flat. The installation and fitting of garden flats can take a lot of time and would be very hard work. It is likely something that will consume the property owner’s backyard for many weeks. If you fit one without their permission, then they are legally able to remove it.

If you plan on buying a granny flat, you need to make sure that you buy one from a reliable vendor. You can ensure that by conducting extensive research and finding out which vendors are most reliable. A vendor’s review can help you to decide this.
