    Just in the process of having proposed building plans certified and starting to shop around for builders

    Any one have any recommendation of an builders/granny flat builders that would build in Logan Brisbane

    The design is a basic 8mx10m (external walls) and require it be low spec (aimed at low market rental)

    any assistance would be appreciated

    Hi gach2
    I presume by the title you are looking for a Granny Flat builder, our books are pretty full at the moment however I have a mate that specialises in Granny Flats in Logan and I think he may be the man for the job. If you PM me we can discuss further.

    Hi gach2,

    I'm planning to build a granny flat at our property in Eagleby Early 2017 (waiting for an OTP to settle). I've approached 3 project managers/GF builders and have decided to go with one that we like. Property has an existing dwelling on 630m2 land, 3m driveway side access and we're building a 70m2 with attached 6.1x3.1m carport and 3.6x3.6m outdoor deck.

    This will be our first GF build, would be great to share ideas/experiences.

    Thanks. Are you using an existing design or is it custom?

    @SK: custom. The architect they've used designed it to maximise sunlight into house, ease of parking, open living, bedrooms separated by bath and laundry. They also mentioned that the granny flat will look more like a house. Past clients have mentioned that their tenants describe the gfs as more as a next door neighbour than a gf in someone's backyard.

    @Zak: thanks, will look into it.
    Keep in mind some builders need to order materials before September for construction to start and finish before end of year. If after September, might as well build after the new year, this will avoid delays in Xmas and minimize your interest repayments during the Xmas break.

    One thing you might want to consider is Hoek modular homes, they build them off site and truck them on. The benefit is that you can literally have the thing done in 12 weeks.

    The price doesn't seem any different, but it's not a traditional brick house.

    If it's for just renting, consider the bog standard guys, like Dixon homes. They actually seem to have lower prices than grant flat builders. Check on their website and see all the standard designs, they go all the way down to tiny 1 room houses.
