What Do Homeowners in California Need to Consider When Remodeling A Garage Into An ADU?

From aesthetics and design guidelines, to the legality of an Accessory Dwelling Unit, there are many things homeowners must consider during remodel. For homeowners in the State of California, there are specific guidelines that must be followed before you begin your garage conversion.

  3. Garage Conversion and ADU Requirements Consider plumbing needs - tank or tankless water heater? Gas or electric? HVAC needs - full system, or a more affordable ductless unit most effective in smaller spaces? How many electric outlets, lights, and switches need to be installed and where in the ADU will they be located? and where do you want them? You’ll need to discuss with your Treeium contractor what kind of electrical panel you’ll need as well.

  4. ADU’s as Rental Property Even if you don’t live on the same property as your garage converted ADU, you can still rent the space to a tenant! However, ADU’s cannot be sold separately from the main home
