What Kind of Los Angeles

Garage Conversions are Available?

With garage conversions, the possibilities are endless! We’ve worked on projects ranging from playrooms to home offices to personal fitness rooms. That being said, most homeowners in Los Angeles initially consider garage conversions as a way to add an extra bedroom.

When you convert your garage into a living area, you’re creating what’s called an “additional dwelling unit” or ADU. These units can be detached or attached to the main house, but they must be less than half the size of the primary structure in order to qualify. Depending on where you are located, building codes may also dictate the number of exits and entrances, the height of the ceiling, the number of outlets, and other factors. In the midst of a housing crisis, garage conversions offer a way to transform underutilized space and earn passive income through renting.

Interested in creating your own rental space? Recent legislation in California aims to make garage conversions more accessible to homeowners. In January 2020, the state passed two new laws (AB-68 and SB-13) which will allow many single-family and multi-family properties to add one ADU. Within Los Angeles, this means that as many as 381,082 homes may now be eligible to add an ADU!

How Much Does Garage Conversion

Cost in Los Angeles?

At Regal Construction & Remodeling, we work with homeowners to accommodate almost any budget. Garage conversions typically do not involve expanding the existing structure of your home. This means that conversions can be more cost-effective than new construction because they don’t require altering the foundation.

To determine the cost of your Los Angeles garage conversion, we’ll need to consider a number of factors, including whether we are raising the floor, insulating the walls, adding heating, cooling and ventilation, and updating doors and windows. On average, room additions in Los Angeles may cost between $20,000 to $50,000.

Some other factors that will influence project cost include:

  • Additions or alterations to the foundation
  • Demolition work and site preparation
  • Government planning and permit fees
  • Quality of building materials such as flooring or countertops
  • Appliances and furniture

Working with Regal Construction for Garage Conversions

Since 2008, we’ve been helping homeowners with their Los Angeles garage conversions. When you contact us for an estimate, we’ll start by discussing your project. We love to help homeowners find thoughtful and creative solutions to everyday functional problems.

Next, we will schedule a consultation. During your in-home consultation, we’ll assess the available space. At this stage, we’re going to help you ensure the functionality of your planned garage conversion. For example, we may want to pull down the walls of an adjacent room in order to create more open space and clear sightlines throughout the addition.

After we’ve designed your garage conversion, we’ll move on to drafting an estimate. Our estimate gives you an expected cost breakdown for materials and labor. Our company was built on a foundation of trust and respect for our customers, so we don’t use any high-pressure sales tactics. We strive for excellence in every project, and customer satisfaction is our top priority.
