Aarons Granny Flats; a flexible & affordable backyard living space
It’s a sign of the times. Family situations are changing. More kids are choosing to stay at home due to extravagant house prices, high rents or pursuing their dreams through education. Even parents are choosing to live with their children, either through downsizing or for a bit more support in their later years. People are choosing to work from home for more work/life balance.
With the cost of housing likely to continue increasing, more and more home owners are looking at ways to extend and take advantage of their existing properties as a way to accommodate changing needs within their household.
An Aarons Granny Flat is the affordable solution to adding extra living space to your existing property.
With various styles and sizes available, they have been designed with YOU in mind. You decide on the layout and inclusions based on your individual requirements and property needs. Our Granny Flats are perfect as a teenage retreat, rumpus room, home office, art studio, she-shed, man-cave, study, music room, yoga space, pool house, guest sleep-out…whatever purpose you have been dreaming of! All Granny Flats come with electricals and plastering as standard, plus additional options available including internal painting, flooring, internal walls, bathroom and kitchenette.
Aarons Granny Flats are fully engineered and certified to meet all relevant building codes and have a complete product and installation warranty.
From the first stage of enquiry, Aarons offers a hassle-free full service solution. We will arrange a site visit, develop the design, create the quotation, can apply for the required permit and building contracts and keep you informed through the whole process. With pre-built modular panels, Aarons Cabins and Granny Flats are a much faster solution, getting your Granny Flat constructed quickly, with limited interruptions to your property and lifestyle.
An Aarons Granny Flat can increase the value of your property, boost your living areas, enhance your backyard and enrich your lifestyle.
Granny Flat Purchasing Process: After the initial enquiry, a site inspection will be undertaken to document setbacks from side and back boundaries, easements, size of the property, trees etc, so we can advise whether everything is suitable to begin the Building Permit Process. It is at this stage that final pricing will be determined. Once pricing is agreed, Aarons will provide a Building Contract for the building component of your Granny Flat, and an Aarons ‘preferred’ builder (or your own builder) will provide a second building contract for the fit out. Both ‘builders’ will be listed on the Building Permit, which will explain the stages that each builder is responsible for.
A Building Permit ensures that the building of your Granny Flat meets Australian standards and building specifications, and is a minimum requirement. But your local council may require you to also have a Planning Permit. This will be determined at the Building Permit stage. Everybody requires a Building Permit, but not everybody needs a Planning Permit. The time required to gain a Permit is varying.

What is the difference between an Aarons Workshop and an Aarons Granny Flat?
An Aarons Workshop has been engineered to meet tough council guidelines and is permissible as a Class 10a (Shed) structure. Our Granny Flats are the same as our Workshops, but with electrical, plaster, wall and ceiling insulation as standard. A Granny Flat requires a Class 1A permit (Habitable Dwelling).
Are Granny Flats Insulated?
Yes. We use sisolation paper insulate on the inside of our walls and ceiling to help regulate moisture, reduce summer heat and winter cold. Granny Flats also include full insulation to floor, walls and ceiling.
My property is unlevel, does that matter?
The posts are supplied at 600mm and are able to accommodate a fall of up to 400mm. However we can provide posts to the extreme length of 2450mm to accommodate any amount of fall.
