1. Plan

First things first — planning your garage conversion. Define the requirement for your new space, whether it will be a guest house, a rental unit, or a cozy personal workspace. Make sure to take into account the building regulations of your local area before commencing.

With our combined expert advice, your initial concepts will be refined into a practical, achievable, and cost-effective blueprint.

3. Organize the Space

Once we’ve sorted out the layout, we start reorganizing the space. This stage may involve raising ceilings, adding walls, or opening up the area for natural light and airflow. We use cutting-edge equipment to perform these operations, ensuring the structural integrity is fully maintained.

4. Install Utilities

To convert your garage into a livable unit, utilities like water lines, electricity, and gas need to be installed. Our team of licensed professionals will outfit your ADU with all necessary utilities, ensuring safety and code compliance along the way.

5. Interior Finishing

Now it’s time to give the personalized touch to your ADU. This step involves adding flooring, painting, installing lighting fixtures, cabinets, appliances, and detailing the interiors. It’s the step where the structure starts looking like a home.

6. Inspect and Move-in

Before you get ready to move in, we conduct a thorough inspection of the converted unit to make sure everything is in perfect shape. After all, your safety and satisfaction are our top priority.
