Why Choose Garage Conversion?

Are you in need of extra living space but hesitant about the hassle and cost of a home addition? Converting an existing space could be the perfect solution for you. There’s no sense in taking up even more yard space by building a brand-new structure. Why not quickly and easily convert your garage to a bedroom or ADU?

Converting an old structure provides you with much more living space, and it also offers a range of other benefits.

Converting a Garage to an ADU

Is your main home often crowded with visiting family or guests? Or do you wish to earn a little more money by renting out a dwelling? Perhaps you should consider converting your garage to an Accessory Dwelling Unit.

ADUs are secondary living spaces that can be standalone or attached to the main domicile. They have all the amenities needed for comfortable living and function perfectly as in-law suites and rental properties. Many people across California have discovered that their underutilized garages can convert easily into ADUs with a fraction of the cost and hassle of designing and building a purpose-built ADU. As an experienced ADU contractor, we can turn your old structure into a fully fledged, independent suite, suitable for visiting family members or renting to tenants.

Pre-Approved ADU Plans


Garages in large multifamily buildings are susceptible to earthquakes. By law, these structures must be made earthquake-safe with a soft-story retrofit, or they risk being declared unsafe. Some people choose to keep their parking spaces by installing expensive steel reinforcements, but most people choose to convert their garages into ADUs. The internal walls remove the soft-story issue, and the extra living space provides a house for guests or renters.

Garage Conversion Types

Converting a Garage to an ADU or a JADU

An ADU is a second building on your residential-zoned property that can increase your property value and serve as a rental property, housing for extended family, friends, or in-home health providers. ADUs can be rented in the short- or long-term to provide a new income source for property owners. JADUs are additional living quarters but are less than 500 square feet and contained within a residence.
