Granny Flats & Secondary Dwellings

Digger Brothers Building are builders experienced in granny flats, cottages and secondary dwellings.

It’s easy to think of a granny flat as an old shed down the back of a property that has been converted for the teenager in the house or for family when they visit interstate.

Whilst this can sometimes be true, these days a granny flat or secondary dwelling can be a great excuse to add a secluded retreat to your existing acreage property.

1. Pre-site

Adding a granny flat or secondary dwelling to your existing Kiama, Gerroa or Gerringong property can not only increase its value, but can also present you with a number of possibilities when it comes to how you utilise this new space. You may wish to have this new addition be a coastal haven that attracts visitors on Airbnb, or additional accommodation for your wedding venue.

Regardless of how you wish to utilise this space, the team at Digger Brothers Building will meet with you as many times as required so that we can discuss your ideas for your secondary dwelling ensuring that the design enhances and compliments your existing property. 

Once we have a full understanding of what you are looking to achieve we will provide you with a no-obligation free quote.

2. Construction

Once we have your approval to proceed we will then start the construction process. 

Construction on an existing property can be disruptive and we appreciate that having builders and trades attending your property regularly may not be something you are used to. This is why we will be in weekly communication with you, updating you on each stage of the build by phone and email and ensuring you are aware of who will be on site on your property. 

We take the safety of our staff and clients very seriously which is why every visitor to site must undergo a safety induction and have approval from our Director Michael who will first communicate with you especially if large machinery is needed and if this will disturb the current land on the property also. 

We want you to rest assured that the team at Digger Brothers Building, will treat your property like our own during the build which is why we make a conscientious effort to ensure all job sites are tidied thoroughly at the end of each work day and no tools or materials are left in harm’s way.

3. Handover

The best part of any project is seeing our clients faces when you see your newly built granny flat, cottage or secondary dwelling. 

We also value feedback on how our team have done as well which is why our Director Michael will personally hand this newly completed space over to you and ask for any feedback you may have. We welcome your honesty and appreciate any feedback that may help our team improve in future. 

We always hope that once you have built with us and have experienced our service, quality workmanship and attention to detail first hand, that you will choose us to work with us again in future.

  • What you have produced has exceeded our expectations. We have effectively a new house on an old footprint, which has enhanced the aspect and view enormously.
