I have a 1012sqm block of land flat cleared and would like to put 2 homes 1 3 bedroom and 1 granny flat in qld. Anyone have experience or idea of best solution/way to start this project. Plan both to be rented on completion. Block is 50 ×20 frontage.
It appears to me that things don’t quite compute….. A quarter acre should be PLENTY big enough to fit a house and a Granny flat, with room to spare. Some folks do this on half that size block. Was there something else that was unsaid – e.g. are there easements on the block that can’t be built upon? Is the house a very LARGE 3 bedder?
Ah, right…. That makes more sense now. Septics can take up a lot of space when using transferation trenches. Aren’t there now newer ways to handle this? Have you researched these later septic options, and do they help (i.e. do they take up less space)? It’s been a long time since I had such a property, so my knowledge today is not great.
Fortunately I have not had time to investigate, meaning the plans /contract is not yet fully finalised to build .And thanks I will investigate further, but when I had plumbing application it was the council whom needed that type of septic design?
I will talk to council and builder about the design and see if I can further reduce the are area of land required.
