There’s no need to pay for a costly upgrade from standard brick veneer. Fixed Price Granny Flats have included Hebel Power Wall Cladding with a rendered finish.
The stunning visual appeal of Hebel is more than skin deep. Underneath the impressive rendered exterioryou’lldiscover the many reasons why more people are turning to Hebel. It is a high performance steel reinforced, aerated concrete manufactured from sand, cement, recycled material, lime, gypsum and aerating agents. It has far greater thermal and acoustic properties than typical brick veneer.
The technology in these walls provides strong fire resistance, enhancing your energy efficient structure. A comforting thought for a comforting living environment.
Includes 90mm Timber Frame with R2.0l insulation, condensation barrier, 75mm Autoclaved aerated concrete cladding panels fixed to steel-battens.
Structural durability and termite protection comes standard in all Fixed Price Granny Flats. We use 3 types of termite barriers in our homes to give you peace of mind against these house-eating pests.
H2-F TREATED TIMBER FRAMES
The timber’s durability is enhanced to a level that is suitable for protecting family homes. H2-F in particular is not only hazardous to termites but is protected from wetting, preventing leaching.
RETICULATED TERMITE TREATMENT
Designed to provide an effective pre-treatment and replenishable Termite Management System around the perimeter of the structure and all service penetrations of immovable, infill/footing designs where subterranian termites are most likely to attack.
THE BEST WINDOWS
IN THE BUSINESS
The windows in our Granny Flats are Double Glazed Windows with Low-E Glass film to achieve a 7 Star Energy Efficient Granny Flat. These windows will keep the interior of your Granny Flat at the optimum level of comfort. The unique air pocket between these windows keeps the air from outside from entering your Granny Flat.
With this process we ensure that your energy costs are greatly reduced
✔ Save $$ on energy bills
✔ Reduced light use
✔ Reduced condensation

7 STAR ENERGY
There are a number of ways to build a Granny Flat so it complies with current regulations and standards. These are set at a minimum requirement.
In NSW the online Building Sustainability Index (BASIX) system set minimum requirements for heating and cooling performance of the building shell. A BASIX report can be completed online by a consumer or by a draftsman. BASIX Reports can be easily manipulated and many are. The Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) is a Government Backed Regulating Authority that rates designs for their thermal performance. These cannot be manipulated. A typical house built in 1990 would have rated about 1 star on the NatHERS scale. In 2003 less than 1% of homes built achieved 6 stars.
Fixed Price Granny Flats will provide a Certified 7 Star Rating Certificate with each Granny Flat.
C-BUS SMART WIRING
Clipsal C-Bus is the leading lighting and energy management system in residential construction in Australia.
The most common reason home owner’s do not install this product is that they do not know what professionally designed and programmed C-Bus can do for them or they simply have not budgeted for this great feature to be included in their project.
This is a modern and exciting addition to your new Granny Flat.
