    You can see daylight through the wall junctions. Are these guys kidding? At least it's fire proof.

    Maybe that's why they call it an "outdoor" granny flat.

    "Won't last!"

    In the literal sense...

    I would be surprised if legal.

    If I was an agent, I would pass on having a listing like this.

    PS must be lovely on a sunny 40+ day

    Alfresco dining, cross ventilation, two way bathrooms - in the big city architects draw inspirations from these rustic designs.

    I'm guessing whoever ends up renting that 'house' would not need 1 car space, let alone 3.

    Owner could've put up another couple of garden sheds and turned it into a 3/1/1, wasted opportunity.

    They've gone about that all wrong! Under capitalised big time. 3 car spaces plus another 2 on the council verge, 3 back packers in each van, there's 15 people. Obviously they can't sleep in the vans there, that would be dodgey but get some bunks and 100pp/wk your up to 1500/wk!
    Missed opportunity!

    Get in quick, you better rent it out before anybody else does. You'll be raking it in.

    Would something like this even need a certificate of occupancy?

    I think it needs approval for someone to live in it.........!

    Your wrong lol, those type of tenants usually have many car 'projects' going at once to supplement their centerlink income..... They usually specialise in re-sprays and engine/gearbox rebuilds then on sell for a profit.... :D:D:D

    Hmmm... My Greenacre tenants do this sort of thing... great tenants though. They may or may not be on Centrelink but to me it doesn't matter. Great family, no hassles at all, rent always on time... if they fix cars that's a good service to the community (though admittedly, there maybe undeclared income there)...
