Building a Music Room - building companies?

Recommended Posts

So we are considering the idea of building a granny flat, but purely a single large room to be used as a stereo music room first, with possible "invisible" theatre as a secondary function. And like a granny flat, this will be a separate structure to our existing home.

Question is, should we explore "granny flat specialists" such as existing homebuilding companies, or are there other solutions/companies to be recommended?

We are in Perth.

 

Cheers,

Mark

For each structure the council may charge you council rates so you may want to find out for sure.

If at least the roofing is connected it may not be a problem.

Your council will likely have a definition of what a granny flat is in terms of SQM. Presumably you want some sort of complying or exempt DA?

 

I'd just talk to them on a no-names basis. If its deemed "illegal" your insurance company may (will) refuse payouts if its damaged, fire, theft etc

I built an outer building purely for 2 channel. I have never looking back.  

For me this room with my mid-fi audio gears sound far highend SQ than those I experienced with extremely highend gears in an average room.

I used Danmar builder. Overall construction cost from start to finish is less than a pair of so called highend speakers.

Thanks @Chanh - what were the WxHxD dimensions of your build?
