Extra Dwelling

Would you believe me when I say,

1 + 2 = $60k a year?

Here’s how that makes sense at Better Building.

Jonathan, Teacher(45)

We met Daniel for our kitchen renovation when he suggested an Extra Dwelling in our backyard. It was a hassle-free, one-year project and now we have two extra income streams right at the back of our house!


Concept & Assessment

If you’re thinking of building a sleepout or self-contained unit, we’ll come to you for a chat about your concept and an assessment of your property. It all depends on how much space you have on your section, what the land is like, and which council rules apply. From there, we may need to organise other checks – like a survey of the site, engineering reports, and drainage inspection.

Daniel and his team came up with the most amazing ideas we didn’t even know were possible, and utilised every inch of our property to good use.


Design & Consent

If your site is suitable, the next step is design and planning. We’ll work with you to create a plan that meets your needs – whether that means housing a teenager or relatives, or adding a completely self-contained dwelling for rental.
Council approvals and consents can get tricky, so we’ll deal with that side of things.

I’ve heard getting council consents were the most difficult part of building but Better Building sorted everything out. All I had to do was just sit back wait for it to clear! We love how all of our ideas came through so modern and stylish!


Construction &

Building is the next stage. Our team of certified builders will bring their years of experience to the project, making sure it’s completed to plan, to a high standard, and on time. When it’s finished, we’ll double check every detail and sort out the Code of Compliance so you can start using your new addition.

It was so exciting to be part of the whole process via their new system, Builder Trend! We were notified throughout the whole project so there were no surprises or sudden delays at all.
I am amazed by the end product, all the details down to the last final touch-ups! Now we have an extra yearly income of over $68k a year and couldn’t be happier! Trust Better Building to be your builder and guidance and witness amazing results.
