Thinking about a Minor Dwelling or Granny flat?

Do you need more space for your growing family or to look after your parents or inlaws? Or are you looking for an option to add income to your property without buying a new home or subdividing? A minor dwelling is a smart choice for adding additional self contained accommodation. 

There are two types of minor dwellings: stand alone dwellings and integrated dwellings. WIth integrated dwellings you may be able to renovate your home to create a self contained unit, whether that be converting your garage, or an extension of your existing house. The option you choose will depend on the size of your section and your budget. 

 Whether you want a granny flat, Airbnb, a rental or extra space for your family, we deliver high quality, custom designed minor dwellings to match your lifestyle and budget.

When you choose a home building company you will want one that designs and builds a minor dwelling that really works for you, your family and your budget. 

Auckland Building Specialists have been building minor dwellings across Auckland for decades. What’s more is they build houses ontime and on budget.
