You may be asking yourself whether to build an ADU or garage conversion. Luckily, you may now able to choose the structure best fits you!

Many new single and multi-family properties will be permitted to have both!

NEO Builder's ADU Development Process

We take your hand and walk you through start to finish. We are builders you can trust.

In just 5 steps you can change your life with an ADU or Garage Conversion!

1.  Create ADU Blueprints

In Los Angeles-area cities, and in unincorporated Los Angeles County, homeowners will need to run plans for the project by their local department of building and safety. For ground-up construction, that means diagrams and exact measurements will need to be included. If a project is especially complex, homeowners may want to seek assistance from a licensed architect.

2.  Get Permits

In an R1 zone, you are allowed in the state of California to turn your garage into a habitable dwelling unit. It will be an accessory to the main house. That is why it’s called an accessory dwelling unit, or ADU. NEO Builders will assist you in all aspects of the permit process. 

5.  Renting out the unit

California rules leave it up to local cities to decide whether ADUs can be listed on short-term rental sites like Airbnb. Some, like Santa Monica, Long Beach, and Los Angeles County, have chosen to limit airbnb but there are many ways to rent out units. Longer periods of time are easier with less hassle. 
Homeowners aiming to build a rental unit to help pay the mortgage are killing two birds with one stone.

3.  Build ADU or Garage Conversion

Upon receiving the permits, we finalize our Construction Contract, including a budget and estimated build time. Then we begin construction on your ADU or Garage Conversion. We provide weekly/daily updates and keep you involved throughout the whole process. After all, it is in your backyard!

Costs and estimated build time depend on the size and features requested. 

Building an ADU or Garage conversion can increase your property value by $100,000+ and generate $10,000-$50,000 in rental income per year, depending on location.
