Need more space or want to earn extra income? A minor dwelling could be the ideal solution!

Since the Auckland Unitary Plan was adopted in 2016, adding a second dwelling to your property has become a more workable option. Not only does a minor dwelling give you more space, but you’ll increase the value of your property. Your minor dwelling could be:

  • Your home office or studio
  • A granny flat for older family members
  • A space for teenagers or adult children
  • Rented out to earn extra income

Rather than digging out a basement, renovating a garage or converting an attic, building a stand-alone dwelling offers a lot more design options. You can plan the second building so it sits nicely on the site and ensure both homes have private entrances and outdoor spaces. And because it’s a modern addition, the minor dwelling will be energy efficient and cheaper to run.

We’d love to meet with you or your architect to discuss your plans for a minor dwelling.
