How to transform a garage into a huge ADU you’ll love
At Dream Home Design and Build, we understand that space can be a precious commodity, and sometimes the answer to expanding your living area is right in front of you - your garage. With the rising popularity of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), converting your garage into an ADU can be a smart investment that can save you money and potentially earn money from renting it out.
Firstly, before starting any work, it is essential to consult with a contractor to ensure that your garage is suitable for conversion. You will need to check zoning regulations and building codes in your area, as well as structural requirements to ensure that your garage is safe and up to code.
Once you have established that your garage is suitable for conversion, it's time to get creative with the design. ADUs typically have a smaller footprint than a typical home, so it is essential to maximize the use of space. A small kitchen and bathroom can be incorporated into the design, providing all the necessary amenities without taking up too much space.
One of the benefits of converting your garage into an ADU is that it can save you money on construction costs compared to building an entirely new structure. Additionally, if you choose to rent out the ADU, you can earn money to supplement your income or offset the cost of the conversion.
It is important to consider the design of the ADU from the perspective of potential renters. Incorporating features that appeal to renters, such as storage space and energy-efficient appliances, can make your ADU more attractive to potential renters, maximizing your earning potential.
