ADU Contractor in Santa Ana

Having an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) on your house is a really simple and an old idea. It is basically having a small dwelling right on the same grounds attached to your regular single-family house. It can be an apartment over the garage, a tiny house on the background, or a small basement apartment. It totally depends upon the owner where they want to get this accessory unit installed in their house. In other words, it is the process of garage conversions and room additions in Santa Ana, and you can get this installed in your property with the help of an ADU Contractor in Santa Ana from a trustworthy ADU Company in Santa Ana. People build them on their property for a lot of reasons including for financial and residential purposes.

Here are some of the benefits that having an attached ADU on your house will offer to you.

1- Raise your property value:

Were you aware of the fact that having a granny suite installed in your house can increase its value up to 30%. But obviously the percentage greatly depends upon the property and its location. Also, the re-sale value of the house is increased by 50%. The top 3 on the list that are proven to increase the value are: Detached ADU, Attached ADU, and Garage Conversion and room additions ADU. Though according to your property and lifestyle, you need to determine which Accessory Dwelling Unit will be bests for you. Also, keeping the budget into consideration. By adding a beautiful new guest home or a granny flat on single family zoned property, you will be able to make at least 80-90& return on the investment.

2- A way to earn passive income:

Getting an accessory dwelling unit built on your house is a good investment to make. The number one reasons why homeowners make this investment in the first place because it becomes a great to earn passive income. Since you are turning a part of your existing house into ADU, it means they have their own entrance, kitchen, and bathroom which allows you to rent of this place separately to tenants. These short-term rental payments are convenient for both the parties as it allows renters a place like home without to actually commit to a long-term lease payment.

3- Your ultimate working space:

If you’re someone who works for home, having a granny flat attached to the house is good. If you’re unable to focus on your work in the house due to varied reasons, you can just set-up an office space in the ADU. An ADU is the perfect option if you want to practice meditation, lead yoga courses, or accommodate patients during therapy sessions. That location exudes calm and serenity due to the privacy, which gives the impression that you’re on a deserted island. Build an additional residence on your property and forget about the traffic and city sounds.

4. A low-cost housing for the senior members of your household:

ADUs, often known as granny suites in the US, can be a perfect option to provide parents and grandparents extra room while still allowing them to live nearby. To keep your loved ones close to home and to enable you to be active in their everyday lives, consider building an ADU for your elderly parents. Long-term savings will result from this because an ADU normally costs between 10% and 20% less than assisted living, which can cost up to $7000 per month. It is a great way to allow elderly family members to continue living independently while also keeping an eye on them in case they require any assistance.

However, in order to get the job done, you need to hire an ADU Company to build the unit for you. Here are the reasons why!

• ADU Companies have the resources and the expertise:

If this is your first time building an ADU on your property, you surely won’t be able to do it all by yourself. You surely need to have an ADU contractor for that because they as said, they have all the knowledge and the resources to carry out the job perfectly. They’ll have the right tools and techniques from start to finish while if you start it on your own, you’ll just be left scratching your head thinking where to start from. Hiring a construction company like Orange County Construction means that they will take up the entire responsibility of the job from plans to permits to the construction. So, you can rest assured knowing that the work is being done by professionals.

• Know-how about the local codes and ordinances:

Having an ADU built on your property is not legal everywhere and even if it is allowed in a specific area, permits are required. Going through this whole process on your own can be really difficult at times. And that is why you need to have a local contractor of your own choice who has deep familiarity with building codes, permit requirements, and other legalities in your service area. Also, failing to comply with the ADU can result in hefty fines and sizeable delays. So, a specialist will take care of all these requirements and will make sure that the best practices and requirements are in place to get the job done!

Does Santa Ana allow ADUS?
ADU stands for “Accessory Dwelling Unit” and the JADU is a “Junior ADU” in Santa Ana. The name ADU is the official name the State of California gave when they mandated that Santa Ana must allow them to be built. It’s also another name for “grandma unit” or “guest house” and more.

What is a Garage Conversion?

In the city of Santa Ana there are many houses that don’t have a large back yard, so the state mandates that Santa Ana and all cities allow garage conversion (JADU or Junior ADU) to be built. Santa Ana can’t make you add more parking due to this. Build a small home in your garage legally.
