It's 47sqm on the current design.
I'm constrained on all sides. I know the Council/state codes inside out and this is the biggest I can possibly get. The location of the house makes it hard too.
What I would like advice on is whether I'm being ridiculous squeezing in two bedrooms or whether I should make it one big bedroom. Would tenants find it so unappealing that its not worth squeezing in two bedrooms?
I've got a design prepared. I can email it to anyone who is interested.
Bedroom 1 = 11sqm
Bedroom 2 = 7.5sqm
Bath = 4sqm
Living/dining room = 16sqm
Rear courtyard is 12sqm

Send me a plan if you would like.
The average bedroom size these days is approx 3m X 3m
To the administrator, it would be really good if you could upload pictures from the computer, not just a link from a website.SeanWilsonParticipant@seanwilsonJoin Date: 2013Post Count: 26
You want to have a minimum for a single bedroom (2.4wx3.0L)
For a master bedroom minimums are (3.6wx3.3L)Made_ManParticipant@made_manJoin Date: 2013Post Count: 35
at 47sqm i would do 1bdr as the overall size would be really small.TheFinanceShopParticipant@thefinanceshopJoin Date: 2012Post Count: 1,271Jamie MooreParticipant@jamie-mJoin Date: 2010Post Count: 5,069vagirl2012Participant@vagirl2012Join Date: 2012Post Count: 47
2br would make is pretty cozy, but it would depend on the area as to whether you can get a 2 br renter.BrazenParticipant@brazenJoin Date: 2010Post Count: 47
You can certainly fit 2 bedrooms into a 45 sq m granny flat (as a minimum) bit it does get a bit tight to be honest. Some tenants prefer bigger (or more) granny flat bedrooms whilst others want more living and dining space. The reality is that, for rental advertising, two bedrooms sounds better than just one. That is, it will get more rent as a 2 bedroom structure.
Here are some variations of one and two bedroom granny flat designs which have been built in Sydney: http://www.grannyflatapprovals.com.au/granny-flat-designs
