ADUs are additional dwelling units, or accessory dwelling units. They are constructed on properties where a single residential home is already in place. Most of these ADUs are used as guest homes, in-law apartments, or storage.
Epic Home Upgrades and Construction is the leader in ADU units in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, and Orange County in California.
Benefits of ADUs
There are multiple benefits of constructing an ADU on your property. However, there are two that really stand out to us.
The first benefit is using this additional dwelling unit for family members. This will turn your residence into a multi-generational home. This is perfect if you need to care for an elderly parent or want to give a relative a head-start in life without needing to pay a lot of rent. There are so many other reasons why multi-generational living might be perfect for your family.
The second benefit is the income it will allow you to collect if you rent your additional dwelling unit out to other people. This rent can be used as stable income that can help improve your financial status if you are currently struggling.
While there are many uses for additional dwelling units, there are only technically four different types of ADUs.
A garage ADU is basically a garage conversion. We will help you turn your existing garage into a space you can use as an additional dwelling unit. If you do not want to convert your existing garage space, we can help you create a design that will add a second level over your garage.
A detached ADU is the most popular additional dwelling unit. This new construction will allow you to create additional space where privacy will never be an issue. This is the option many homeowners like yourself choose when they are creating a guest house or in-law home. This ADU will ensure your guests, or members of your family, always have the space they need without constant interruptions.
An attached ADU is new construction that will add more space to your existing home. This attached space can have all the comforts of a real home, even though it is attached to your home. Most homeowners call this a room addition, which is what it technically is.
An internal ADU is normally called a basement remodel or basement conversion. However, an internal remodel can also involve adding a second story addition to your home.
