ADD VALUE TO YOUR HOME…
Is it time to give the growing offspring somewhere else to live? Is it time for parents to have their own separate place closer to where you live? Perhaps you are interested in a little extra income or maybe your house is now too big for you, but you don’t want to move?
Consider the possibilities
A minor dwelling could be the answer. A simple, cost-effective way to add extra living space or value to your home. Often becoming self-funding over a very short time period, they can add immediate value and provide low risk, long term financial gain.
And they don’t require a lengthy subdivision process.
Minor dwellings can be a win-win solution for all sorts of financial and living situations .
Minor dwellings will generally be one or 2 bedrooms with a maximum size of 65m2 and include a kitchen and bathroom.They will require consent and we can help advise you on this.
Things to check when you are looking at regulations for minor dwellings
The planning regulations are designed to ensure that areas are not spoilt or become overcrowded and protect areas with respect to:
- the environment
Single House Zone – a minor dwelling can be built of up to 65m2.
Mixed Housing Suburban Zone – each section can have up to two dwellings without resource consent
Building a minor dwelling with us
We can provide a fixed price turn-key contract from the start, so you know what to expect during the entire process.
Research and consultation
We meet on site to determine site requirements and establish your needs. We then prepare the fee proposal for design and building consents.
Design and pricing
We hold a preliminary design meeting and come up with some concept design drawings based on your plans or our ready-to-build house plans.
We create a preliminary cost estimate and identify any resource consent, engineering and consultant costs required before moving on to the final concept design drawings and costings.
We will prepare, submit and manage any building consents through council.
We begin construction, oversee budgets, contractors and any consultants. If any changes to the plans are required, we will process any variations through council.
Before you move in, we will ensure that all final inspections have been undertaken and then get council sign off, if required. We will then walk you through your lovely new dwelling, showing off the many gorgeous features while also reiterating the details of our 10-year home building warranty.
A minor dwelling can be a smart choice
Our designers have dreamt up some very clever designs that maximise living on smaller footprints: secondary dwellings that make the very best use of the land they occupy.
