Transportable Granny Flats – The Benefits of Living in One

transportable granny flats

Yes, transportable granny flats–also known as “motor homes” or “weekend homes” –are becoming increasingly popular. Some of them are even actually manufactured in a factory, delivered directly to your house, and then installed. Then, you take it home, assemble it (if it has parts that need assembly), and then transport it for use in your new home. Sounds easy enough, right? And yet many first-time buyers become confused by the confusing and varied options available in this growing market. How does one choose the perfect unit for their lifestyle and budget?


When shopping for transportable granny flats online, the first thing you want to do is determine how much space you have to spare for the unit you plan to purchase. For example, if you live in a small apartment with three or fewer rooms, it makes sense to go with a modular unit that offers additional living space as add-on options. In other words, instead of buying just one large unit, you can buy several small ones that can be connected together to create a larger living space. Many of these units come in specially designed layouts that include a kitchen and dining area; some even come with a garage attached.


Beyond size considerations, there are many other factors that need to be considered when choosing the right unit. What appliances and furnishings do you need to accommodate your growing family? Do you want an appliance or furniture suite with built-in microwave ovens and refrigerator-freezers? There are many benefits to owning a transportable granny flat, including many options for those looking to live in the “hip” suburbs or outside the city life.
