Designer Dependant Persons Dwelling Plan



Are you looking for a single bedroom home that be for your teenager or an alternative source of rental income. Want to put it on your existing site?


This little design is 60m2 which means it complies with the size requirements of a Dependant Persons Dwelling, which is a permitted activity in some areas.

I live in 60m2 in my own home, so I asked myself what I love in my space and what I needed to have for it to function efficiently. The floor area of a Dependant Persons Dwelling is permitted to be 70m2 in some situations, this design can easily be expanded to that. 


Designed with an open plan living, kitchen, and dining area, upstairs bathroom and bedroom, this design has a small footprint for tight sites. This design is customisable to suit your individual and unique requirements especially with the height, to work within the planning requirements of your section.


The size of this design makes it possible to be manufactured off site, if part or in whole, which might offer more economy to your build. This can reduce construction waste, travel times, and reduce weather delays to your project.


Different materials to what have been shown can be used so that you get the exact look and feel that want, that reflects your style, budget, and taste.
