Making Room For The Kids

Turning an old storage room into an oversized granny flat.

The Brief

When newlyweds needed to save for their own place, mum and dad jumped in and asked us to build them a space of their own. What was there originally was just an old shed and some decking. We created a fully contained granny flat with a large living area, new kitchen, new bathroom & walk-in wardrobe.

Project Description

We started with a timber deck area and an unused storage room. We had to strip out the storage room and block off the internal access from the main house.


We demolished the brick wall, rear-face of the home to create a new access way via sliding doors. We supplied and installed a completely new timber framework and flooring to create their new bedroom and bathroom.  All new plumbing and electrical services were hooked up for both the kitchen and bathroom.


In the bathroom, we installed the waterproofing, tiling and all new fixtures and fittings. We followed this with a laminated kitchen with stainless steel appliances. The entire property was plasterboarded and 600 x 600mm floor tiles installed, along with LED downlights and fresh paint throughout the new granny flat. A walk-in wardrobe was built as a great addition – places of this size don’t usually accommodate such a luxury.


Lastly, we relocated the laundry to an undercover outdoor area to maximise the internal space and minimise the sound of the washer and dryer in the main living space. Best of all is that we came in $3,000 under budget and delivered the project in perfect timing.

client testimonial

Adesso Building Renovations was able to give my daughter and son-in-law a space to call their own, away from the main house, with their own fully self-contained flat. Not only did this give extra value to our property but the build is of such great quality, we know it will last well beyond our retirement years.

Giovanni never hesitates to do the little extra things that just make the whole experience so much more pleasant.


ABR's attention to detail and workmanship really shone through after we started using the bathroom. It's not until you spend a little time in a space that you realise the quality that goes into the work.


Giovanni and the team basically built us a whole new house. It was such great value. It has everything a couple could want.
