If the house you bought has a garage, you may be wondering how to convert it into an ADU, and there are many garage to ADU conversion designs to choose from. A garage ADU can be as spacious as a studio apartment. Here are a few excellent ADU design ideas to consider:
1. Create a one room ADU
In some cases, an ADU can feature a design that’s similar to a hotel room, which will only have a single room and an attached bathroom. While this design is quite simple, it can also feature plenty of space. However, the amount of living space that you can create depends on the size of your garage. Levi Design Build will help you determine whether or not you have enough space in your garage to create an ADU.
2. Design an ADU with a partition
You might want to consider a design that features a bedroom and a kitchen. This can ensure that you have plenty of space, and ADUs that feature partitions can offer more privacy than other designs. Here are a few ways that you can create the partition:
- Build a wall with sheetrock and wooden beams
- Create a partition with a brick wall
- Design a partition wall that’s made out of cement
3. Consider creating an ADU with a separate entrance
If you are designing a garage ADU, it’s possible to create a separate entrance to it. This will offer an exceptional amount of privacy for residents, and these designs are easy to create for most people who own a home with a garage. The garage door can be replaced with a conventional front door, which will allow you to enter the ADU.
4. You can choose from many blueprints online
If you are planning to build an ADU, there are many designs that you can choose from. In fact, it’s possible to purchase garage ADU blueprints for less than $1,000. These designs will show you how to create your new living space, create a partition, and design a separate entrance for your accessory dwelling unit.
