Convert Garage to Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU)
If you have a garage on your property that is unused or underutilized you may be considering a garage conversion to turn your garage into an auxiliary dwelling unit. Below we outline signs that suggest converting your garage into an ADU is the right choice.
1. Your property no longer meets your needs
If you love the location of your property, but its size and functionality no longer meet your needs, it is a good indication that you should convert your garage into an ADU.
For example, you could develop a home office ADU, to accommodate a new business venture or a recent move to remote working. Alternatively, you may create an ADU for an elderly relative or your child who is a young adult living at home, if you do not have room in your home to accommodate them.
2. An ADU would help you achieve a long-term goal
If converting your garage into an ADU would help you achieve a long-term dream or goal, you should pull the trigger and complete the conversion. For example, if you have always dreamed of having a large, family kitchen, you can convert your garage into a kitchen ADU.
Ensure you pick garage conversion specialists who have a good knowledge of kitchen appliances and kitchen cabinets Los Angeles based, to ensure the kitchen you have always dreamt of is created.
3. You want to add value to your property
If you plan on selling your home in the near or distant future, you will naturally want to receive the best price for your property. Converting a garage into an ADU is an effective way to add significant value to your property.
For example, if your property has multiple secure parking spots, such as a driveway and on-street parking, a garage is additional, unnecessary space.
An ADU, on the other hand, will be an interesting feature to the property and help increase the value of your home and attract more buyers.
