What type of ADU Should you build?
You may be asking yourself whether to build an ADU or garage conversion. Luckily, you may now be able to choose the structure that best fits you! Most states recently passed laws allowing many new zoning codes to accommodate Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU/ALU) and Garage/Basement Conversions. Many new single and multi-family properties will be permitted to have both!
Ceed Civil ADU Development Process
We take your hand and walk you through from start to finish.
In just 5 steps you can change your life with an ADU or Garage/Basement Conversion!
In most jurisdictions, homeowners will need to run plans for the project by their local department of building and safety. For ground-up construction, that means diagrams and exact measurements will need to be included. If a project is especially complex, homeowners will utilize our engineering expertise to ensure it’s built to code.
In most areas, you are allowed to turn your garage or basement into a habitable dwelling unit. It will be an accessory to the main house. That is why it’s called an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) or accessory living unit (ALU). Ceed Civil will assist you in all aspects of the permit plan process.
Upon receiving your permits, Clients can finalize their Construction Contract, including a budget and estimated build time. Then they will begin construction on your ADU or Garage Conversion. We can provide engineering services throughout the build process. After all, it is in your backyard!
Costs and estimated build time depend on the size and features requested.
Building an ADU or Garage/Basement conversion can increase your property value by $100,000+ and generate $10,000-$50,000 in rental income per year, depending on location.
When your ADU or ALU is completed, the final inspection will give you the ability to start utilizing your new space and generate the income you have always wanted.
