Less space at home? But a tight budget to buy a new one in LA? Don’t worry! Accessory Dwelling Units in Los Angeles can be the best solution for you to this problem. Even when you have the budget to get a new home, leaving all convenience in the current location just for space doesn’t make sense.

In fact, it’s better to create an ADU on your yard in the same plot and covert an unused space in the home. All you need to sit with us and discuss the design you want to have.

But before that, you must clear the confusions and queries lurking in your mind.

Can I convert the garage into ADU?

Many homeowners have doubts if they can legally build an accessory dwelling unit. Yes, you can do so if you live anywhere in LA. You can convert your garage space into an attached or detached rental room to make it livable. But the regulations may differ from one place to another in California.

How much do you need to spend on ADU and garage conversion?

There’s no certain answer! It can vary depending on your structural requirements and budget. For example, you can estimate at least $150,000+ for a full custom rebuild of a detached or attached ADU. Contrarily, $60,000+ is expected for a simple garage conversion. You may get such budget ideas from the reply of customers on Yelp.

Detached or attached ADU or Garage conversion: Which makes more sense?

Some people who have a budget limit go for garage conversion, while a few prefer building a new detached or attached ADU. Also, the following advantage and disadvantages may help you decide so:

  • A garage conversion is time-saving while less expensive than building an ADU, as mentioned. You can spend only on interior decorations, not on the roofing and foundation.
  • On the other hand, you may get less return on investment if having a plan of selling it. After all, you have left with no parking space!
