Gone are the days of the daggy annex or extensions out the back.
The days of the ultra-modern second dwelling with rental potential are here.
The potential of the humble granny flat is endless: an accommodation space for family and friends; an artist, parent or teens retreat; rental income through lease; even the potential as an Airbnb.
With the relaxing of building policies, it is fast gaining popularity with homeowners again as a way to establish affordable housing.
Previously granny flats were only permitted for use of dependent relatives.
Now this second dwelling can be used as a rental to an third party.

You’re invited to discover the benefits of granny flats as Titan Garages and Sheds general manager Dallas Simmonds officially opens a new arm for the business, Titan Houses.
“Being in the building manufacturing industry, we saw a market that we could help people with an option for affordable housing by supplying direct, cutting the middle man out,” he said.
“It offers home owners the chance to provide added accommodation for their extended family or for the potential of generating a rental income.
“It also adds value to your property.”
Titan Houses offers a range of housing sizes from 45 square metres, including one bedroom, a bathroom and open plan kitchen, dining and living space, through to 98 square metres including three bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry, a large living space, kitchen and dining areas.
Buildings can be completed to lock-up stage, including external cladding, roof, doors and windows, allowing you to make your mark with the final fit-out to your taste.
With prices starting at an affordable $18,900 (kit only), it is easy to see why Queenlander’s are turning to granny flats as a way to add to their income and get that extra internal space they’ve been dreaming of.
Regular open hours are 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday and 8.30 to noon on Saturday.
Titan Houses are backed by Titan Garages and Sheds, one of the largest and most successful steel building manufacturers in Queensland.
It is a family owned business operating for 25 years helping Aussies build carports, garages and sheds.
