Q. What is a garage conversion and why should I consider it?

Garage conversion plans repurpose your garage into habitable living space such as a home office, guest suite, or rental unit. This process adds valuable square footage to your property, potentially increases your home’s value, and addresses your evolving lifestyle needs without expanding your home’s footprint.
Project duration varies depending on the city, generally taking four to six months from design to permitting, plus additional time for construction. EZ Plans optimizes this timeline, ensuring a streamlined and efficient process from concept to completion.
The setbacks of the existing dwelling apply when converting an attached or detached structure to an ADU. The existing structure does not need to meet the current setback requirements when converting to an ADU. However, any addition to the converted structure/garage will need to meet the current setback requirements.
Replacement parking is not required when a garage, carport, or covered parking structure is demolished, or converted, to create an ADU.
Yes, converting a garage into a habitable space mandates permits to comply with building and safety codes. EZ Plans expertly handles the permitting process, ensuring your project adheres to local regulations and standards.
