What Kind of Los Angeles

Additional Dwelling Units are Available?

High-quality ADUs can increase your property’s resale value and home equity while solving functional problems.To begin planning your additional dwelling unit, you’ll want to identify your intended use for the building. If you’re planning to find a tenant for the ADU, this should influence your design choices right from the beginning. On the other hand, if you’re planning to occupy the ADU while renting out the primary residence, you’ll have the opportunity to completely customize your living space.

Need some inspiration? Take a look at some of the most popular kinds of ADUs:

  • Garage Conversions & Additions
    • The most cost-effective way to add an ADU is through garage conversion. This is because the basic structure of the ADU already exists. If you are converting a two-car garage, you will likely have sufficient space for a studio, or potentially a one-bedroom unit. To expand the ADU beyond the confines of the garage, consider requesting a quote for home additions!
  • Detached ADU
    • Considered the ‘quintessential additional dwelling unit,’ detached ADUs are free-standing structures built on property that is already occupied by the primary residence. Detached ADUs are usually located in the backyard and should include full amenities, such as a kitchen and a bathroom.
  • Attached ADU
    • Attached ADUs are particularly popular with property owners who live with extended family or full-time caretakers. These structures can be the result of converting an existing space (such as an unused, enclosed patio) or they may be added through new construction. Attached ADUs share at least one wall with the primary residence.
  • Multistory ADUs
    • While most ADUs are constructed as single-story homes, multistory units are also possible. Unfortunately, the maximum height of an ADU cannot exceed 25 feet, which limits the buildings to two stories. By separating bedrooms between the floors, it is possible to create an enhanced sense of privacy for the occupants.

How Much Does an Additional Dwelling Unit Cost in Los Angeles?

ADUs provide an elegant solution to the housing crisis and help you build property value. Best of all, ADUs offer consistently high returns on your initial investment while simultaneously improving your quality of life. At Regal Construction & Remodeling, we believe ADUs should be an option for everyone, so we work with homeowners to accommodate almost any budget.

To determine the cost of your Los Angeles ADU project, we’ll need to consider a number of factors, including the size and scope of the project. If you need the services of a specialist, such as an architect or electrical engineer, you’ll need to include them in the budget. On average, constructing a new additional dwelling unit in Los Angeles may cost between $250 to $450 per square foot. Generally, as the space gets bigger, the cost per square foot will decrease. To get an accurate estimate, you’ll need to schedule a time to review your proposed changes with a licensed contractor.

Some other factors that will influence project cost include:

  • Connecting existing utilities
  • Demolition work and site preparation
  • Government planning and permit fees
  • Quality of building materials such as flooring or countertops
  • Appliances and furniture
