Garage conversions & ADU!

Accessory dwelling units (ADUs) and garage conversions are a popular and fantastic way to bring new life into your home. These types of projects—adding additional rooms or even an entire new floor to a home—help homeowners get more value from their home while ensuring their home continues to fulfill their changing needs.

Tremendous Return On Your Investment

There are a wide variety of reasons that drive homeowners to embark on a room addition or a garage conversion. For example, they may seek to accommodate a growing family through a room addition or converting their garage into a bedroom. Converting a garage into an additional dwelling unit allows homeowners to generate new income from renting that space. A garage converted into an apartment also will enable families to accommodate the elderly in
circumstances when they need to reside close by.

800 Remodeling has seen an understandable spike in ADU and garage conversion projects in Los Angeles since the beginning of the global pandemic. By converting the garage into an office, those newly working from home can achieve a valuable physical separation between home and work. Meanwhile, others have found the income from renting their new accessory dwelling unit a game-changer during times when other revenue streams might be less reliable.

Garage Conversions & ADU FAQ

With 800 Remodeling, we ensure that your ADU complies with all Los Angeles regulations. The ADU must be less than 16 feet tall if it’s under 750 square feet. For an ADU within an existing structure, we ensure that it doesn’t exceed the existing structure’s height. For a detailed, personalized plan for your ADU project, please get in touch with us.
An ADU and a guest house serve different purposes. An ADU, which we specialize in, includes its kitchen, making it a self-contained living space separate from the main home. Conversely, guest houses typically lack kitchens. For a comprehensive understanding of ADUs and how they can benefit your property, contact 800 Remodeling today.
The construction rules for ADUs in California vary based on several factors. Still, we at 800 Remodeling ensure all guidelines are met. For instance, detached ADUs can be up to 18 feet high under certain conditions. In comparison, attached ADUs can be as high as the main house or up to 25 feet, whichever is lower. Contact us to discuss your ADU project and understand the applicable rules.
An ADU permit in Los Angeles averages around $8,000 for a 1,200-square-foot unit. However, the cost can vary based on the design, property size, and location. 800 Remodeling can provide a detailed cost breakdown for your unique ADU project.
The permit acquisition process for an ADU with 800 Remodeling typically takes four to six months. We assist you through each step, ensuring a smooth and timely permit approval process.
While ADUs offer numerous benefits, some challenges include managing tenants’ living spaces, potential loss of storage, and increased property taxes. However, with the comprehensive services from 800 Remodeling, we guide you through these challenges and maximize your ADU’s benefits.
Yes, an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is similar to a granny flat. Both include a kitchen, bathroom, and living space and have separate entrances. 800 Remodeling specializes in the design and construction of both. Contact us for more information on building an ADU or granny flat on your property.
The rental income from your ADU is taxable. Still, you can deduct maintenance costs and depreciate the construction cost, often reducing or eliminating the tax increase. At 800 Remodeling, we can guide you through the financial implications of building an ADU. However, we recommend consulting a tax professional for advice tailored to your circumstances.
A garage conversion is generally the most cost-effective way to create an ADU. Keeping the existing envelope of the garage without expanding its footprint helps keep costs down. At 800 Remodeling, we can help you evaluate the best and most cost-effective approach to your ADU project.
According to California State code, all ADUs must be at least 150 Square feet, but some exceptions may apply. With 800 Remodeling, we can navigate these requirements and develop an ADU plan that maximizes your lot size and meets all regulations. For more information or services, don’t hesitate to contact us.
At 800 Remodeling, we recommend building above an old garage as one of the most costeffective ways to convert a garage. This approach allows you to add new space with a new purpose while keeping the project budget-friendly. However, this method might only be suitable for some cases, and it’s best to consult with us to determine the optimal solution for your specific needs.
The cost of architect drawings for a garage conversion typically hovers around £2,000. If you plan to build on top of your garage, you may also need a structural engineer, which can cost an additional £500 – £1,000. At 800 Remodeling, we can guide you through these costs and help you manage them effectively while ensuring the best results for your garage conversion.
Typically, you don’t need planning permission for a garage conversion as long as the conversion doesn’t affect the home’s exterior surface. However, planning permissions might be required if the exterior is tampered with. At 800 Remodeling, we handle all necessary permits and make sure everything complies with local regulations.
Yes, they can be. A garage conversion can add up to 20% to the value of your home, providing valuable extra living space that is less prone to planning complications.
While a skilled DIY-er can undertake a garage conversion, it’s important to remember that a building control inspector will check all work. Any work that doesn’t comply with building regulations must be redone. We recommend partnering with professionals like us at 800 Remodeling to ensure everything is up to standard and done right the first time.
A garage conversion involves several steps, including raising the floor height for insulation over the concrete slab, fully insulating the walls and ceiling, and providing heating and cooling for the space. At 800 Remodeling, we have the expertise and experience to handle all these steps and more, ensuring your garage is converted into a functional and comfortable living space.
The duration of a garage conversion varies but typically takes 3-6 weeks. However, this can change based on the complexity and scale of the conversion. We pride ourselves on completing projects in a timely manner without compromising quality.
While it’s not a legal requirement, having an architect’s plan dramatically improves the odds of a successful renovation. At 800 Remodeling, we provide comprehensive planning and design services to ensure your garage conversion is successful and meets your specific needs.
The ceiling height for a garage conversion should be around 2.2-2.4m once the floor has been raised to 15cm above the external ground level. We consider this and other factors to ensure your converted space is comfortable and functional.
Typically, planning permission is not required for bricking up a garage door if the work is internal and doesn’t involve enlarging the house. However, certain conditions may require planning permission. At 800 Remodeling, we handle all the permissions and ensure your project complies with local regulations.
The first step in a garage conversion is assessing the existing structure, which includes the foundations, walls, and roof. This assessment helps us understand the extent of work required to create a comfortable living environment. At 800 Remodeling, we provide a thorough assessment to ensure the success of your garage conversion.
A garage conversion does not necessarily devalue your home. In fact, in many cases, the additional square footage is appealing to home buyers. It can increase the resale value of your home. At 800 Remodeling, we aim to add value to your home with every project, ensuring your garage conversion enhances your property’s worth.
