If you’re interested in building a granny flat, either for it’s practical uses or as a investment opportunity, you might be struggling with visualising how one would look on your property or you might be simply looking for inspiration – so we’ve decided help you by rounding up a collection of the best looking granny flats we’ve come across online (including some of our own)!

Please note: not all listed granny flats are Acrow Investment designs, but we can certainly build one that is very similar in appearance and even tailor it to meet your needs – just get in touch or view our granny flat designs.

1. Cottage style

This cottage-style granny flat we found online makes excellent use of space and environment. Acrow has many similar designs and the majority of our plans come with outdoor deck as standard.

2. Contemporary colour palette

This Acrow designed granny flat has an excellent outlook and uses a gorgeous modern colour palette. Staining the timber slatting really gives this design an edge.
