Granny flats are prefabricated and shipped ready for placement and are economical as they provide accommodation or office facilities that are self-contained. 

    While granny flats have traditionally been built on-site, an increasing number of importers are now choosing to import them pre-made; this is because granny flats can be easily sourced from overseas manufacturers and delivered to Australia at a fraction of the cost of a traditional build.
