Should You Build an ADU or a Garage Conversion?

You may not have to choose! The State of California recently passed laws (AB-68 and SB-13) which allows many new zoning codes to accommodate Accessory Dwelling Units and Garage Conversions. Many new single and multi-family properties will be permitted to have both! NEO Builders would be happy to help you decide if just one or both is the best option for you! Not to mention we are the fastest builders in California!

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 city 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.

4.  Complete Finishes

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. 

3.  Build ADU or Garage Conversion

Upon receiving the permits we finalize our the Construction Contract which will include 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! View  virtual tour of our ADUs!

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

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