As delightful and comfortable as it is to be living in the renovated house next to the Greeny Flat, it’s possibly even more comfortable and delightful to be spending the next couple of winter months in Port Macquarie. A dear friend of ours owns a nice older home near the beach and wants to convert their garage into a granny flat.

The garage in Port Macquarie that I will be converting to a granny flat over the next couple of months.

The great thing about this garage is that those two roller doors face directly north so, by replacing them with large windows and adding a small awning for summer shade we’ll be able to set up the granny flat for really good passive solar performance.

Here are a couple of computer generated images showing the before and after concept.

And here are the before and after floor plans. I’m excited to see how it turns out because I think it’s going to be a really comfortable and functional little dwelling.
