all about Additional Dwelling Units
Accessory dwelling units (ADUs) are becoming an increasingly popular housing option for homeowners looking to increase their living space or generate rental income. An ADU is a separate living unit on the same property as a primary residence, and it can take many forms, from a basement apartment to a standalone backyard cottage.
At Mahya Salehi Studio, we specialize in designing and building ADUs that meet our client’s unique needs and preferences. Our team works closely with homeowners to create custom ADUs that blend seamlessly with the existing home and landscape while providing comfortable and functional living spaces.
One of the critical benefits of ADUs is their flexibility. They can provide additional living space for extended family members or as rental units for extra income. They can also be designed to serve as a home office, art studio, or guest house. With the high cost of housing in California, ADUs offer an affordable way for homeowners to increase their living space without having to move or build a new home.
Another advantage of ADUs is their potential to increase the value of a property. Many homebuyers are interested in properties with ADUs because of their flexibility and income potential. This can make a property more attractive to buyers and increase resale value.
In addition to designing and building ADUs, we also offer consulting services for homeowners who are looking to explore their options. Our team can provide guidance on zoning and building codes, financing options, and the construction process. We are committed to helping homeowners navigate the complexities of building an ADU and making the process as smooth and stress-free as possible.
