Accessory Dwelling Units


What Does ADU Mean?

Turn your home into the estate you deserve with small external dwellings that stand alone from the main building. An ADU, or accessory dwelling unit, is a fully functional mini-home complete with a bathroom and kitchen. They can serve as guest houses, homes for extended family, vacation rentals, or places for live-in help. An accessory dwelling unit is a great all-around investment, because it can save you money on elderly care, bring in rent money, be there to boost your property value, and more. You’ll never regret the asset that an ADU tiny home can be. Let Executive Design and Construction build yours in L.A. today!

Common Questions About Accessory Dwelling Units

Accessory dwelling units are in many ways a new concept. While there have long been savvy entrepreneurs and landlords who have renovated and rented out their extra space, there are now more avenues than ever to do so easily, especially with the advent of apps like AirBnB and Hipcamp. What our accessory dwelling units provide are a space to live, complete with a kitchen and bathroom. Here are the answers to a few other common questions you might have.


What is an Accessory Dwelling Unit?

To truly be called an accessory dwelling unit, the space should be capable of providing for all the basic residential needs of a home, including spaces to live, cook, clean, and go to the bathroom. That means having at least one kitchen and one bathroom. It is an additional residential area that stands apart and should be able to stand alone from the primary residence, while occupying the same lot.


Is an ADU a good investment?

Of course it is! If you’re going to be around for the long term, or even planning to sell soon, an accessory dwelling unit is a no brainer as an investment. The type of accessory dwelling unit that you’re building will have to be taken into account, but it’s hard to go wrong — you could convert some basements for as little as 20,000, or go grand and build an entirely new residence on your property for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The fact is, the average rent in L.A. is near to 2,250 per month. That means nearly 27,000 dollars a year, and if you turn it into a busy Airbnb, the profits could be significantly larger. So if you use it correctly, it should pay for itself in a relatively short time. Beyond that, it will be there to provide a place for guests and family to stay in times of hardship and celebration, and increase your property values when the day finally comes to sell.


Do I need a permit to build an ADU?

Yes, you will likely require a permit for the accessory dwelling unit you’re building on your property. It’s almost guaranteed if you’re expanding the overall size of your house or building a new unit altogether. However, there may be some instances where your home is set up to easily convert to an ADU without the need for much construction and red tape.
