What Is A Garage Conversion?

Garage conversion ADUs (accessory dwelling units) turn your average garage into a perfect living space. Whether your home has an attached or detached garage, we can transform this area into a secondary housing unit. This is done through our building process, which involves customizing the place for your application and building within the space we have to work with.

A housing unit is not the only thing we can transform this space into, as we can create offices, game rooms, gyms, libraries, collector displays, living rooms, bedrooms, and anything else that comes to mind! We have the experience and versatility to make your dreams come true. If you’re a homeowner in Orange or Los Angeles County, be sure to give us a call today and get your free garage conversion quote!

Advantages To an ADU/GARAGE Conversion

Living within LA and Orange counties can be pretty expensive, and homes just seem to be rising in price. An excellent way to increase your income and the value of your home is by converting your garage or building an ADU on your property to create an additional living space. Since this new addition to the house will be completely livable, you can rent out this property to establish another income stream. This comes with little work, stress, or additional involvement, making for the perfect way to add some extra money to your pocket.

If you decide to sell your home, this added conversion will help increase your property's value! As the housing market grows, more individuals already seek a home with added perks such as an ADU unit, making this an excellent value proposition.

As families begin to grow, the average 3-4 bedroom home is no longer adequate to match demographic realities in the U.S. Converting your garage into an apartment can help create the room you need to live comfortably with your family, as everyone can have the space they require to live their day-to-day lives. This area can also be perfect for any elders you may take in, as they can have their own space to live independently while still being close to the rest of the family!

Permissions and Requirements

Like any other construction project, many permissions and requirements must be met to complete the work adequately. Our garage builders know all zoning restrictions and permits within Orange County, LA, and beyond. When working with us, rest assured knowing you will benefit from our expertise, as our goal is to complete the work well and legally.

Regulation compliance is also essential and can include fire regulations, design guidelines, California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24), California Green Building Standards Code (CALGreen Code), etc. Our garage builders can ensure your new unit is up to compliance.

Converting your garage into an ADU can create issues with parking, as you might need additional room for potential renters or other occupants. There are specific permits, design options, and other aspects to be aware of if additional parking is required, and our experts can guide you through the process.
