Features

Most granny flats are designed for people that do not have a large collection of things to keep on hand. However, if you do need to keep more things handy, the Emerald has you covered. There are 2 bedrooms, a full size bathroom, and a separate laundry.

There is also a spacious Alfresco which you access from the living area through the sliding door and is large enough for family and friends to visit and enjoy the outdoors. The bathroom is situated between the two bedrooms giving both residents easy access.

Steve, the director of the company is a very passionate person and happy with the staff. We're happy with the outcome of the granny flat they built for us. The inclusions were of high quality. We are happy to recommend them to other people who are intending to build one for either extra space, to downsize or for additional income.

We recently built a granny flat with DB-Homes and had a fantastic experience! They offered quality inclusions in comparison to competitors and were quick to responses. Alex and Rick were informative and very helpful during the sales process to build our custom granny flat. Jason Taouk (Project Manager) was taking lead throughout the build and kept us informed along the way. He always made time available to us to review the granny flat when it suited our schedule and was quick to address any areas of concern. As with any build there are always going to be minor defects, however these were addressed promptly and nothing major to prevent us from moving in. Overall, initial contract sign in May and was completed by late November. Thanks team!

So far, the construction of our granny flat has gone to plan and we are very happy with the team at Db homes and the feedback they provide. Jason - one of the foreman was very accommodating and helpful all through making the entire project fun and productive. We work across nations and we will be happy to employ their services on our projects overseas.

I must say that we are quite happy with our granny flat and garage. The DB Homes employees should be congratulated for the outstanding professional way they conducted the entire project.We thank Murat and his workers for fine contribution and we highly recommend it for future granny flat customers to go to, to seriously reconsider putting their trust and confidence in Steve Basafacan and his staff. We recommend them to anyone who are interested in first class, up to date granny flats to seek DB Homes and see what the company has to offer. Congratulations to all staff once again and thanks for the great professionalism.The granny is a comfortable living with sophisticated craftsmanship at a reasonable price. The team especially Murat was very helpful and hardworking supervisor. The whole arrangment was very professional and all Steve's employees are highly well mannered employees with a good reputation and very understanding to work with.Steve is a very astute proprietor who knows what customers prefer as you will see when you visit one of his showrooms.

Building a Granny Flat with DB Homes was an unexpectedly great experience.The office and on site supervision staff that I mainly dealt with, including Shelley, Ibrahim and Jason reflected their personal and the company’s high level of accountability, through their honest attention and clear, prompt responses to any of my concerns or enquiries.My role as a customer in the progress of the project became the communication and the observation of a smooth progress of well timed events, with minimal schedule deviations, resulting in the completion of a quality project, earlier than the timeframe of the contract.Based on my personal experience, I would not hesitate recommending DB Homes as a reliable Building Company, where quality of work and customer satisfaction dominate their business focus.

Prompt in addressing queries and concerns, quality work without hassles. No great price variations from original quote/agreed amount which means no headache in my bank account! Approachable staff available at every stage of the build whenever I needed clarification. Would work with them again definitely.

Honestly apart from a slow start in the process getting the construction to begin after that for the day the slab was poured to the day we got our keys it was quick, efficient and communication was great. Our foreman billal and project manager Jason constantly visited site to ensure works were on time and up to standard. Considering we are not at home as often he ensured everything met our standards thanks

We were recently given the keys to our new granny flat constructed by DB Homes who have surpassed our expectations. Everyone from the organisation who has been involved has been very helpful and professional from start to finish. We are particularly grateful to our sight supervisor, Murat. He is very honest and great to work with and we were very impressed with the regular updates he provided throughout construction. Thank you Murat and DB Homes, we look forward to our next project with you.

Our granny flat has basically been completed and let me just say, I'm blown away by the results. It looks amazing, inside and out. When compared to other companies that we had looked at, DB Homes definitely give a much more premium end result in regards to the quality of tiles, fixtures and fittings etc. The granny flat is spacious, well designed and looks great.Our site manager Jason Taouk was with us from start to finish during the process and was heaps responsive to any inquiries we had, he coordinated the whole process amazingly from start to finish and made sure we were satisfied. Heaps polite, top bloke. I'd suggest if anyone here is thinking of getting a granny flat built to ask for Jason to look after it.Thanks DB Homes.. you all did a great job.
