Granny flats or teenage retreat - the garden room that grows with you!

Updated: Mar 7, 2020

The term granny flat has been used for years and no matter how much people try to change the term to something modern and sleek, Granny flat still sticks in our minds as permanent living and sleeping space for a family member. 


In many cases it is for an elderly parent who can no longer manage independent living without having a carer close by. But how do you approach someone dear to you and try to convince them to live in your backyard in what some would consider a shed?!

Inoutside recognises that the wellbeing of a vulnerable person living in a back yard building is of paramount importance. The space needs to feel like a home and not a shed. 

At Inoutside we offer customisation on all of our builds and this includes a full installation service that takes into account, high R values of wall, floor and ceiling insulation. The rooms are plastered to a smooth finish and the space can be bright and airy with good garden views from many elevations. 

Windows can be double glazed to reduce the carbon footprint but to also ensure the space has less noise interruption and no drafts. We can add kitchens and bathrooms to the builds, modern and sleek. Offer a superb outdoor space which is decked and under cover-so really more inside, outside. All built to the Australian Building Codes with opportunities to have materials upgraded to your specifications. 

We feel it is important that the person going to use it should be involved in the customisation process ensuring self management in the planning and organising process so in essence a shared experience. 

Please see our Design Gallery on the website which offers all sorts of different designs and configurations that can be enlarged and stretched to make a perfect 20th century Granny Flat!


Teenage Retreat:

As our children grow into young adults it becomes apparent that they need space - as do the parents! Sometimes a back yard room can have benefits for young people living at home.

Young adults need space and privacy so an Inoutside room can be a perfect haven to keep the home running smoothly and also adding value to the property when it is time to sell or rent!

A teenage retreat can offer a place to sleep, study, play games, use it as a gym or fitness room and hang out with friends. The rooms can be sound-proofed if you have a budding musician at home and are concerned about the noise effecting neighbours. 

The Mallee lends itself well to a teenage retreat as it has a good level of privacy with two long Cedar elevations and has space at the back for a small bathroom and frosted glass window.

Check out some of our designs in the Design Gallery and remember all our builds can be customised to suit your requirements and your churubs!

In order to make a beautiful home design, I needed a lot of time. I found photographs with an approximate design, but I needed to edit them and reduce the size so that they all fit on one sheet and I found a website and here I was able to edit the photos quickly and efficiently. And the design of the house turned out the way I wanted, I’m very happy about it, because my dream came true.
