The Perfect Addition to a Traditional Spanish Bungalow in LA.
Construction Costs: $175,000
This handsome Spanish Bungalow started life as a detached 2-car garage that was originally built in 1932.
The owners (a growing family and only limited space available in their 3bd/2ba main house) originally reached out to us for help in converting their garage into a studio apartment.
Although they wanted a one-bedroom ADU, they didn't want to lose any of their valuable backyard to make way for the small addition required to convert the garage into a true one-bedroom home.
We listened to their desires and designed the perfect solution to add the extra bedroom they needed while maintaining the backyard as-is.
The solution was to design an addition that extended forward and attached to the existing home. A breezeway was added to separate the main house from the ADU and maintain access from the driveway into the backyard.
The result is a brand new ADU that looks like it is part of the home's original design.!
