At Cubitt's our guarantee of excellence includes;
The whole process was great, the contractors were fast, professional and very considerate of our family life. Very fast build and great service. Thank you
Early completion ahead of the contracted date saw us have the house tenanted quickly. Took a load of stress away and the finish is fantastic.
All of the staff, through administration, planning and building to completion, at Cubitt's have been most helpful and responsive in moving forward on the construction of a great little granny flat that gives great and appropriate extension to our Federation Cottage.
We chose Ian Cubitt’s to build a granny flat, with suitable modifications to meet the needs of our medical issues. Our granny flat has ramps, wide doorways, plenty of room to manoeuvre a wheelchair, sliding doors and a specially adapted bathroom. We could not be more delighted with the finished home. From pre-planning to completion we have been kept informed of progress. The site was always tidy, the tradespeople professional and polite, as were the supervising staff. The neighbours were very impressed with the low noise levels and lack of disruption to them.
We chose Cubitt’s as they had 3 flats of different designs in their showroom, which we could inspect. They organized Council approval for us as our granny flat had to be built close to our neighbour’s fences. Work was performed very efficiently. We even had some work done on a few Saturdays. The work was completed on time. We have no hesitation in recommending Cubitt’s.
The granny flat is nearing completion nearly a month ahead of schedule, with little to no problems, with all carpenters and trades being respectful and professional with their level of work being flawless.

No, we are not the most expensive, not by a long shot.
Cubitt’s have been building Granny Flats and home extensions in Australia for over 25 years. Our longevity and extensive knowledge of the industry allows us to deliver projects from world-class suppliers at affordable, value for money prices. Our experienced sales and design consultants will keep your budget in mind when considering any options for you.
Cubitt’s experience and passion for what we do means our projects are delivered on time and within budget, with no hidden fees or post-contract changes.
Plus, included in our cost is our unbeatable customer service. Our experienced and friendly staff are always available, from our design team right through to office staff, your site supervisor and construction team. Our motto is one contact, zero confusion!
Survey reports (such as bushfire, flood etc) ensure your safety and your warranty, so they are worth doing and doing well.
The team at Cubitt’s are completely transparent with you from the start about any report(s) that you will need, and the costs involved. In this way, you are aware of everything up front. Our team helps our customers understand the reasons and can support the process to get moving on your build.
Our standard inclusions are:
+ much more!

A feasibility study is the first action the team at Cubitt’s will take to give you the complete assurance that your property is appropriate for building a Granny Flat. A feasibility study and all of your pre-contract work is conducted completely free of charge when you come on board with Cubitt’s (with the exception of fees applicable to councils for surveys and certificates).
We recommend that you be cautious of anyone asking you for a deposit or fees for a feasibility study.
At Cubitt’s, our experienced council planning and drafting teams understand the complexities of building with councils throughout NSW and the ACT, and will take care of all the council dealings for you – it’s all included as part of our service.
Sometimes council approvals can take longer than anticipated, but we always keep you informed and supported every step of the way. Councils are increasingly becoming more aware of how crucial Granny Flats are to affordable living in NSW and the ACT, with some parts of Sydney seeing approvals doubling within the last two years alone. Some councils are approving applications in as little as ten days!
The short answer is no, this is not offered by every builder. Review your choices carefully and be really selective about who you choose to work with. We recommend that you sign up with a builder rather than a company who will draw up your plans and just leave it to an assortment of subcontractors to figure out the construction. All too often we come across people desperately looking for urgent help with unfinished jobs!
One of the advantages of building with Cubitt’s is that we are true builders ourselves – from our Founder Ian Cubitt himself right through to our construction team of over 100 experienced builders.
We give our customers the reassurance that when you indeed turn the key to your brand-new front door, your build will be complete, warranted, certified and completed with care and precision.
We recommend you take care to confirm what ‘Complete Service’ claims actually include when searching for a business to build your Granny Flat. Complete service should include designing, quoting, all council approvals, construction, fabrication and logistics plus after sales support and quality control.
Technically yes, and some Granny Flat builders will take your money without even visiting your property and proposed building site. But is that something you feel comfortable with?
The Cubitt’s team of experts will come to your site completely free of charge, to review whether there are any reasons why a Granny Flat wouldn’t work. During our visit, we can provide you with recommendations about how one of our Granny Flat models could be best placed on your land, and whether you would like to look at a base model or a customised model.
It’s all part of the Cubitt’s Advantage. Our staff are perfectly skilled, constantly committed and proudly respectful.
