Choosing the Right Room Addition Contractor
Room additions can enhance the appearance, functionality, and value of your home. They’re a popular option for homeowners in Southern California, where adding square footage can significantly increase a home’s resale value.
Maybe you need more space to accommodate your growing family, or you work from home and need an office suite. Perhaps you’ve always wanted a second floor or an in-home gym.
Room additions and accessory dwelling units are often confused, but they’re not the same.
A room addition is a build-out of an existing structure to increase its square footage and functionality. Adding another bathroom or bedroom, enlarging an existing living area, or adding a second floor are all examples of room additions.
An accessory dwelling unit is a standalone structure designed to function as a small home. An ADU typically has its own kitchen, bathroom, bedroom/sleeping area, and living space. It can be used as a guest house, rental unit, home office, art or music studio—or even a “man cave” or “she shed.”
