Our Recent Projects

Woodland Hills homeowners are increasingly thinking about expanding their living space on their territory. Accessory dwelling units are used particularly successfully for this. An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a small house or outbuilding that will be placed on your property. It can either be attached to your main home or be an independent building in the same area.

ADU is one of the best options for families. Buying a new house or an additional apartment can cost a lot of money and not everyone has the budget for it. ADU can be a great solution for expanding your livable space.

Below we will tell you what ADUs can be used for, what the rules when building them are, how to hire a contractor, and other essential things you need to know before building an accessory dwelling unit in Woodland Hills.

How to hire an ADU service provider near me?

Before you hire, you must search for accessory dwelling unit service providers you can trust. Many companies are operating in the Woodland Hills and West Sacramento area, but it’s not a good idea to conclude a contract for accessory dwelling unit construction with the first company you find.

First, you should familiarize yourself with the available information — read reviews, talk with clients, and look at completed ADUs projects. A company that values ​​its reputation always cares about the quality of its services. Be sure to check that the builder has the necessary licenses required by state law. Also, check if the company provides liability insurance. This is essential since it is unlikely that you, as the property owner, want to be responsible for everything during construction.

ADU building service provider in Woodland

By hiring a company to build ADU in Woodland Hills, you are avoiding the additional headache and saving a lot of time. You can be sure that the existing space of your house will be greatly improved. There are special regulations for a converted space or structure. And although the manager of the company is obliged to inform you about them, it does not hurt to prepare yourself.

  1. Number of ADUs

A single-family home can have up to two ADU. A multi-family building may have more ADUs, but the exact number depends on the type of ADU planned and on the existing structures on the site.

  1. Minimum And Maximum Size

You are not limited in any way by the minimum size, but there are rules regarding the maximum. In this case, detached ADU and attached ADU will have different maximum allowable parameters.

  1. Height Limit

For all types of ADU in Woodland, the minimum height needs to be 16 square feet. An attached ADU cannot exceed the height of the primary structure or 30 feet, whichever is greater.

  1. Fire Codes

Fire safety is vital and all available measures should be taken to maintain it, but nevertheless, fire sprinklers are required only for a primary dwelling.

  1. Location

There are nuances regarding the location of your ADU depending on its type, but there is also one general rule for everyone. The ADU must be located in your residential area no more than one-half mile from a bus station or public transit station. It is allowed to install ADU both on the territory of a single-family dwelling and multi-family properties.

There are special regulations concerning detached ADUs. They should have no less than four feet of the side and rear setbacks from the existing primary dwelling, as well as from the rear property line. Junior accessory dwelling units and converted ones do not have to follow this rule.

  1. Parking Requirements

Attached and detached ADUs should also meet special parking standards. Parking provided should have one place. If the covered parking structure was converted to an ADU, then an off-street parking space would not be needed.

When you hire ADU Builders California to create an efficient dwelling unit, you can be sure that all the legally established rules will be met. Our team has great experience in construction in the designated historic
district and will do everything at the highest level.

Frequently Asked Questions — FAQ

Do I need a building permit for making an ADU in California?

It's best to get up-to-date information from your City Council. However, you will need to obtain an ADU permit from the City Planning Division. Also, if the size exceeds 1000 square feet (three bedrooms), you will need a zoning administrator permit. If you do not want to deal with all the formalities on your own, then we at Advance Remodeling are always ready to help you, including with obtaining the necessary permits.

Why do I need an ADU?

ADU is a great way to improve housing opportunities. By placing ADU on your site, you can get more living space for yourself or your guests. It will be something like a guest house on your territory or the so-called granny flats. This is an opportunity to comfortably accommodate more people on the territory of your single-family primary home. It is often used for accommodating aging parents. Also, room additions and garage conversions will increase the value of your home and also provide you with an opportunity to earn an additional source of income.

How much does it cost to build an ADU in California?

It depends on many factors - whether you will be building a structure separate from the primary residence or converting an existing one, what size you are planning, what materials you want to use, and so on. It is best to contact the Advance Remodeling managers for suggestions. They will advise you as soon as possible and help you determine the budget.
