Steps to Completing your Granny Flat Kit
Contact a Private Certifier.
You will need to find & engage a private certifier local to where you are building as they will need to conduct the required inspections as part of your approval.
Get a Quote.
Get in touch with us for a quote including the changes that you have made (window, door & internal wall position changes are free of charge), delivery, engineering certificate & any other requirements that you have.
Pay a Deposit.
When you are ready to start your application process, contact us to pay your initial $5,000 non-refundable deposit. Once this has been received, we supply your floor plan, elevations & elevations including any changes that you have made for your council application.
We will require a written confirmation from you (email is suitable) confirming that the floor plan & elevations we have supplied to you are correct. Once this has been received, the wind rating will be determined for your property.
In the event that you require a higher wind rating, we will notify you of wind rating required and the cost involved. Generally speaking, to increase the wind rating to N3 for a 60m² building is an additional$2,000. This includes the upgrade on the windows & doors, roof strapping & framing engineering.
Once the wind rating has been determined, your engineering drawings & engineering certificate will be sent over to you to submit to your certifier.
Soil Test & Foundation Engineering.
You will need to find & engage a soil testing company & structural engineer (usually, your chosen engineer will also do soil testing) local to where you are building. Once your soil test has been completed & soil type determined, your engineer will need to provide a footing or slab design to suit.
Submit the documentation (your certifier will send you a list of documents required for your approval) that you have obtained to your chosen private certifier for building approval.
To book you in for delivery & start manufacture of your kit, we will require your 50% manufacturing payment (less your $5,000 deposit). Once this is received, we will provide you with a delivery date.
We will start production of your frames, and process the orders for the windows, external cladding,roofing & flooring (if purchasing with a gal chassis).
We will send through an email to confirm your colour choices for your corrugated iron wallcladding (or HardiePlank if your purchasing this), roofing, gutters, fascia & window & door frames.
You will be sent a link to our Colour Confirmation Google form to complete the selections.
The colour charts can be found below.
The balance payment for your granny flat is due 2 weeks prior to your delivery.
Congratulations! Now the fun begins!
