    Garage Conversion – Accesory Dwelling Unit (ADU)

    As your family grows and more living space is needed, adding a new room to your home is a great solution that comes to mind. However, this may be a more expensive and complex project then what you may have in mind. The simpler and more affordable substitute is to renovate your garage into a living space. Your existing garage consists of a strong foundation, four exterior walls and a roof.
    Another, yet equally important reason to convert your garage into a living area in Los Angeles County is to provide an additional, fully independent housing unit completely separate from the main home, which can have all the necessities (kitchen, bathroom, closet, etc.).
