Owner Builder ADU Garage Conversion Recommendedations

Posted May 23 2022, 17:10

Does anyone in Orange County have any experience with an architect that specializes or at least has experience with garage conversions? I’m very interested to tackle his project as an owner builder to save money to use higher quality materials. I’m located in Huntington Beach, has anyone else done this before? Would love to hear others’ experiences.

I converted my 488 sq ft garage into a 1 bed 1 bath ADU all in for 31k as an owner builder (before SB 13 passed). It's definitely worth it if you have the time and construction knowledge.
