To help with the housing crisis in the city, authorities responsible for regulating development in residential neighborhoods across Los Angeles have enacted favorable policies towards the development of unused spaces especially towards the building of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). This includes a backyard studio, backyard office, garage conversions, and alternate housing options.
Adding a backyard studio to your property by converting your garage can boost your property value and add much-needed square feet to your home. The cost of adding a backyard studio is much less than you think, as the foundation and main structure are already in place. Adding things like a door and window to give your alternate living space a more homie feeling.

Owning a Backyard Studio apartment is beneficial in many ways. You can use this as a way to earn extra income by renting out the space. This option allows for the ADU to pay for itself!
Another great option is using this dedicated space as an in-law suite for when relatives come to visit. This gives everyone their own space.
An accessory dwelling unit is a residential unit, for example, a studio apartment (the self-contained house where the normal functions of several rooms for example kitchen and bedroom are all combined into one room) that is built on the same lot of land as the primary residential unit. However, the utilities of an ADU are usually separate from the main residential unit.

As a homeowner in LA, you can gain a lot by adding a studio ADU to your residence. Some of the benefits you will likely see on building this type of accessory dwelling unit include:
Should you decide to put up your house for sale, property valuers will take into account the investment you have put into building the ADU which will translate into increased property value. Adding more square feet and extra space by building a backyard office or backyard studio will make your property value skyrocket.
On building a green ADU that relies on sustainable resources such as solar power (just like your primary residence should), you can end up lowering your monthly energy bill significantly. Further, if you start recycling water from both houses for gardening and landscaping purposes, you can also lower your monthly water bill significantly.
A studio ADU is a separate housing unit that you can put up for lease and in the process earn significant passive income on a monthly basis.
An ADU is a functional space that can be put into a lot of use. For example, you can convert it into a home office, gym, storage area, or even as a living space when family members come visiting.
A properly designed ADU can complement and enhance the architectural style, appeal, and general aesthetics of your entire residence.
The demand for housing in LA is at an all-time high, and as the owner of residential property in the area, you are in a prime position to accrue the benefits that come with owning a studio ADU on your property.
