Building Granny Flat. Step 2: Locate the Box with Hardware and Instruction Manual

The second step in building granny flats form YZY Kit Homes is to locate the box with hardware and an Instruction Manual.

“One of the most important thing to do is to locate a box where is your all hardware and all your screws inside. And the most important peace is your plans, because it’s your friend! There is a list of parts inside your plans which explains where everything goes. They are coming in a plastic bag. Find your main floor plan page.  In case of inclement weather, put it back inside your plastic bag. And you can always pop it out in a nail bag. And flip over to the next page that you need. And put it back inside just to preserve the plan a bit better.”  – advises Peter Swanson, Canberra Outdoor Structures.

You will find the Instruction Manual in the box with hardware. Manual consists of all drawings with every wall marked ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ or ‘D’ etc.  You will also find the plans of every wall with its every board marked by a different identification number.

Expert’s Tip: It is a good practice you mark the letters on the sub-floor, so every team member can see where every part picked form the pallet will have to go.

The next step is to getting all parts organized for installation. All granny flat building steps can be found on Builders Guide page.
