How Much Will a Backyard Office Cost?

May 4, 2022

If you want to build an ADU or accessory dwelling unit on your property to use as a home office, there are some important things to know to ensure your construction project meets your needs. One of the first things to consider is the breakdown cost of a backyard office shed. If you're opting for a ready-made shed, you will know how much you can expect to pay before you purchase.

However, the cost varies depending on the customized features of your office space. Los Angeles ADU Builder can help you create a home addition that will serve as your home office. You'll have a dedicated space to complete work and school projects, and a stylish and functional ADU can add value to your home.

The Los Angeles ADU Builder is here to help you decide which accessory dwelling units will meet your needs. If you're working from home, as many people are these days, you can benefit from a separate space outside of the house specifically for taking calls, working on reports, and even completing homework assignments. Adding the specialized door and window features, color schemes, flooring, and walls for your home office will make your backyard office shed a peaceful and productive environment for you.

Cost to Build a Backyard Office

Generally, you can expect to pay up to $5,000 for the materials needed for your backyard or garden office. This is the price for a basic shell of an ADU. Once you choose the unit you want, you'll have to weatherproof it and factor in plumbing and electrical work.

The final building phase could cost you up to $10,500. If you plan to build a garden office, you'll also need to look into business permits to ensure that all the features of your ADU are built according to local ordinances and codes.

The team at Los Angeles ADU Builder will work with you to ensure that you receive professional installation when it comes to making your backyard office into your own professional paradise right on your own property. An electrician may do the main wiring for around $1,000, and the Los Angeles ADU Builder team will let you know which options are most cost-effective for you if you want to add plumbing to your office or studio shed.

If you decide to add a bathroom to your backyard studio, you may not need insulation if you live in an area that gets lots of sunlight and it can cost around $200. You can ask the professional team at Los Angeles ADU Builder which insulation options are right for you since even a small bathroom will significantly impact the total cost of your ADU home office.

The overall cost of your ADU will depend on the size of the unit, the finishes and features you want to add, and how much labor is required to build the backyard office you want. You should also consider the decorative features you want in the office space once construction is complete so you can customize the area. This will increase your motivation to get more done in your new office. Contact Los Angeles ADU Builder for your consultation today.
