HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, September 8, 2009 7 Granny flats by delivery HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE ASK THE EXPERTS Trish Crawford's mother has reached an age when the family should start looking at a retirement village, but she really wants to stay close to the family and maintain her independence. Mrs Crawford decides to look at some of the options available to families. Is there a company that can provide such a service? Yes. Why not build a granny flat in your garden for your mother? Classic Granny Flats and Studios offer granny flats that will give your mother her independence while still being close to the family. I don't want something that looks like a box. Do they have nice models? Yes, they have more than 20 different models that are more like mini-homes and are built to a quality level higher than a project home. How do I go about this? There are a few ways of doing this -- you can contact them by phone, jump on to their website at classichomeimprovements.com.au or even go to their showroom to walk through a real model. Should I inform my local council? Classic Granny Flats and Studios have been dealing with councils for 15 years. Let them do it for you. How many bedrooms can my mother have, as she is still active and would like a room for her craft? The granny flat can be up to 60sq m in size, allowing her two sizeable bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and laundry. Can my mother have her own electricity meter so she can pay her own electricity? Not only can she have her own electrical meter, but she can also separate her water bill by having a separate water meter. Where do we start? Once you contact Classic Granny Flats and Studios, a full information pack will be sent to you. From there you can have a consultant visit your home and discuss the next step free of charge and obligation. How long will this process take? The ideal situation will take two to three months from start to finish. In the worst case it will take four to six months.
