Backyard sleep-out

Whether it’s an investment move, a solution for a teenager needing their own space or a way to look after your parents or in-laws, building a minor dwelling is a win-win solution to a myriad of financial and living situations. Refresh Renovations North Shore can provide you with a design and build which perfectly suits your needs.

How much will my project cost?

Refresh designs and builds to your specifications and budget - working with you to create a final result which is feasible, attractive and practical. The final cost will depend on a range of factors including your ideas, your budget, council consent, materials, labour, site assessments and service connections. All costs included, building a minor dwelling generally starts from around $200,000. Your minor dwelling specialist will be able to provide you with a cost estimate and fixed-quote accurate to your specific requirements.

Costs are rough estimates and are subject to change. For a cost estimate accurate to your specific requirements, please consult your local Refresh Renovations specialist.

Will my project require council consent?

Depending on the zone of your property, you will most likely need to attain building and resource approval from the council. Refresh can take care of the planning and council consent application process for you, ensuring all work is carried out in accordance with local regulations and the Auckland Unitary Plan

What are the benefits of including a second building on a property?

People choose to build minor dwellings for a variety of personal and financial reasons. Minor dwellings provide a straightforward solution for families who require more space and accommodation. They also serve as a cost-effective option for first-time homebuyers. There is a growing interest in small houses and minimalism, so some people may be drawn to the idea with this in mind. For many, the decision to build a second dwelling is an investment choice. They may choose to subdivide their property and rent out the second dwelling in order to enjoy a passive income.

Your Style,
Your Budget,
Our Expertise

Refresh®’s process supports a bespoke design and build: a renovation tailored to your lifestyle requirements and taste. Your local Granny Flat renovation consultant will manage every aspect for you - working to keep everything on track.

Step 1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

The first thing your Granny Flat renovation consultant will want to know is what it is that you want to achieve through your home renovation. In this initial consultation, you can throw all of your ideas on the table - your consultant will then tailor them to your property and budget.

Step 2

Concept and Feasibility

With a clear understanding of your renovation goals, your Granny Flat consultant can arrange for an architectural concept to be drawn up. This allows your Granny Flat consultant to assess whether or not your ideas are feasible, and allows you to point out any changes you would like in the design - before any work begins.

Step 3

Working Drawings and Costing

Next, working drawings will be developed. These will take into account the engineering, structural, design and aesthetic decisions you have made. If you would like to make any further changes, now is the time to do so. From there, your Granny Flat consultant will present you with a fixed-quote as well as a contract.

Step 4

Build / Construction Stage

Finally, you get to witness your project transition from the page to your property! Every aspect of the build will be managed for you, allowing you to carry on with your everyday life. Your Granny Flat consultant will do everything in their power to keep your project on schedule so that it can be completed within a set timeframe and budget.

Step 5

Your Finished Renovation

The final stage is for your local Granny Flat consultant to ensure that all Council documentation is completed and you have the necessary Code of Compliance documentation. Congratulations – your renovation is complete!
