An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a legal and regulatory term for a secondary house or apartment that shares the building lot of a larger, primary house.
Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) have become the latest craze in the country due to financial benefits it brings for homeowners or property owners. In city of Los Angeles, the permit submittals for ADUs have tripled during the past few years and it continues to grow. More homeowners are investing in converting their existing garage space into an ADUs or building new ADUs in their backyards because they know they can have a steady income for many years to come. Others use this space for having guests over from out of state or country and some use the ADU space for having their parents, children, or friends to live. The ADU provides more than just a habitable space… it provides independence, privacy, and confidence.
ADU’s are limited and restricted for their size, height, and location on the property by local city code. We would be more than happy to help you with your ADU conversion or new construction design.
