Our Process

From our initial consultation to handing over your keys, we will be with you through it all. Our 7 step Granny Flat Process and Five-Star Performance Checklist, ensure a smooth construction process and a qualify finished product, every time.

Step 1

Step 1- Consultation

The first step in the G.J. Gardner Granny Flat process is to sit down with one of our friendly consultants and discuss your granny flat proposed location, feasibility and purpose.

Step 2

Step 2- Preliminary Design

After meeting you, we then get to know everything about your lot/backyard- dimensions, topography, location of utilities, landscaping, etc. We then select an efficient Granny Flat design that fits perfectly into your backyard with required setbacks.

Step 3

Step 3- Plan Approval

At this stage, we request a deposit and present you with a contract. We then will complete your plan and present it to you for final review. Your Granny Flat proposal is then submitted to local municipality and fast tracked for approval.

Step 4

Step 4- Site Preparation

We now start the construction process of your new granny flat. During this stage, we connect all existing utilities and prepare the site for foundation.

Step 5

Step 5- Exterior Finish

Your Granny Flat’s exterior color selections and materials will look similar to your current home. Our Five-Star Performance Checklist guarantees that the exterior materials come together to create a beautiful new Granny Flat every time.

Step 6

Step 6- Interior Finish

During this step, your selected inclusions are carefully installed with our highest quality craftsmanship. We also welcome you to inspect our work before we complete the finishing touches.

Step 7

Step 7- Handover

When building is completed, we’ll be issued a Certificate of Occupancy, then request final payment and schedule your walk-though. After we complete the home orientation and received payment, we’ll hand over the keys to your new Granny Flat!
