ADVERTISING FEATURE BENEFITS OF GRANNY FLAT PAYS FOR ITSELF IN FIVE YEARS Janita Singh A granny flat can add value to your home, pictured, latest designs from Ian Cubitt's Classic Home Improvements ALL IN ONE Ian Cubitt's Classic Home Improvements is one of the largest builders of granny flats in Australia and offers everything under one roof, from consultation to construction. The team can organise council approval in as little as 10 days. Details: Call 1300 721 150 or visit grannyflatsandstudios.com.au A GRANNY flat is a convenient inclusion, adds value to a home and can bring extra income. This has been a popular trend in Australia for many reasons par- ticularly for retirees, says Ian Cubitt's Classic Home Improve- ments. One of the largest builders of granny flats, Ian Cubitt's says it is most important to get this ad- dition right by maximising un- used yard space efficiently. To ease the housing shortage in NSW, the State Government has passed legislation that facilitates homeowners keen on building granny flats. Ian Cubitt's says it's a worthy investment that pays itself off in as little as five years. The company makes this ad- dition possible by taking care of everything including concept, council approval and construc- tion. It has launched some great de- signs to choose from to suit all pockets and needs. By providing your site plan, sewerage diagram and some basic detail, Ian Cubitt's can give a free assessment of your property and unlock the potential of your home. Advantages of a granny flat include: Investment: pays itself off in 5-7 years Provides steady income Uses otherwise wasted space Adds value to any property Maximises rental return Great for negative gearing. PRODUCT FASHIONABLE KITCHEN, GOES WITH ANYTHING Details: smeg.com.au FASHION catwalks have long been the platform for deciding new trends not only for what we wear, but also how we dress our homes. With this in mind, Smeg's new retro refrigerator was a standout at Milan's Eurocucina international design show. Sporting 1950s retro styling, the FAB28 Denim is clad entirely in dark denim, complete with traditional jeans stitching that has been treated with nano-plasma technology to prevent fading and staining. This latest creation is a clever melding of two design icons -- the denim fashion statement that has spanned two centuries, and the vintage styling of the 1950s that is defined by its curved profiles. And it's far more than skin-deep in its attraction -- open the door and its tech- nology is very much 21st-century. With a total capacity of 256 litres (there's a fridge as well as a freezer component), the appliance has automatic defrost, four quick-chill crystal glass shelves, a chrome wine rack and eight door compartments for dairy, charcuterie and condiments, and boasts a 3.5-star energy rating. $ON T PAY RETAIL BUY DIRECT m!S SEEN IN (OME "EAUTIFULn COMPARE OUR PRICES!
