If you need to add a new structure on your property in order to accommodate a relative, but want to maintain your privacy, Remodel Works has a solution for you: granny flats. As an expert granny flat builder for multi-generational living in the San Diego area, the designers and contractors at Remodel Works know how to maximize your available space to create an aesthetically-pleasing separate unit that will keep your loved ones close by, without feeling like you are on top of each other.

What is a Granny Flat?

A granny flat is a separate, self-contained living area that is typically located on the grounds of a single-family home. Most often, a granny flat is built as a guest house in the backyard, but can also be attached to your main dwelling. The structure is called a granny flat because it has emerged as a popular and affordable way for families to accommodate their aging parents, as the cost of care continues to skyrocket.

Granny flats, also sometimes considered in-law suites, also fall into the popular tiny house category. The granny flat can be used not only for elderly parents, but also for nannies, young adult members of the family, or even as rental units.

Granny Flats in San Diego

A package of housing reform measures was passed by the San Diego City Council in 2017 to speed up the permit process, making it easier for homeowners in San Diego to build granny flats. The law was passed to help homeowners who wish to add a structure like a granny flat to extra space they have in their yard or garage area. Remodel Works knows how to create a granny flat for you within these guidelines, and together you will create a structure you and your loved ones will enjoy.

Why Granny Flats?

As Americans live longer and retire later, multi-generational living is becoming more and more popular. Seniors are living more active and healthy lives in their later years, and having them live in a granny flat on your property can be beneficial to the whole family.

Grandparents can provide live-in child care, which will save the family on expensive daycare costs. Likewise, adult children and older grandchildren can help care for elderly grandparents. Both solutions save the family thousands in care expenses.

Granny flats also strike a good balance between care and independence. Since a granny flat is usually a separate unit from the house, you can each maintain your privacy, while bringing the family together as much as you’d like.
