Granny Flats

Queensland is experiencing a 'granny flat' boom due to the shortage of suitable housing options for seniors as well as the high cost of retirement homes and their ongoing fees. The are also the perfect solution for a teenagers retreat or family member's own self-contained flat. Many of our clients are also building luxurious two bedroom 100m2 flats to retire to and rent out their principle home for a healthy income in retirement.


Lateral Homes are leading the field in comfortable, custom built 'Granny flats' - winning the inaugural HIA 2011 'Affordable Housing' award with 'Granny flat' design 'Peridot', then going on to be a finalist in the Queensland Housing Awards.


Our cottages are built on site, matched into you existing home if desired and can be individually designed to cater for your needs. They are a real home - comfortable, modern and low maintenance. At Lateral Homes, we take care of all council applications and processes. We are able to provide advice on the most economical and beneficial way of placing your new flat on your property and meeting council requirements.


As with all our homes, we offer the choice of steel or timber frame, custom designed kitchen and cabinetry and a free colour selection meeting with our interior design consultant. They can be built as a slab on ground or on steel posts; a flat site or sloping; brick or cladded; just as a new home would be built.
