A General Contractor for ADU Design and Construction in Laguna Hills, Mission Viejo, and Orange County
Accessory dwelling units (ADUs) are popular projects in Orange County. They are sometimes also called mother-in-law units, granny flats, or simply rental units. Whatever you call them, they are a great addition to a residential property. An ADU can provide you with an additional living space for family and guests, create extra income when used as a rental unit, and add a good amount of value to your home.
An ADU is an independent dwelling space, detached from the main house, that has its own kitchen, bathroom, living, and sleeping areas. Depending on how the ADU will be used, it can have other features as well. For example, if the ADU will be used as living quarters for an elderly family member, you may want it to have some handicap-accessible features, such as wider hallways and a roll-in shower. If it will be a long-term rental unit, you may want to consider adding laundry facilities and some additional storage space. If its main purpose is to be a short-term rental unit (or guest quarters for visiting friends and family), you may not need a full kitchen or a lot of storage space, but you might want to consider features like built-in bunk beds and a dedicated parking area.

Other Considerations for ADUs in Laguna Hills, Mission Viejo, and Orange County
If the ADU will be used by someone other than your immediate family or close friends, you will want to take privacy into consideration—both yours and your guests/tenants. The team at Scott McKee Construction can help you design your ADU in such a way that everyone involved feels as though they have their own space. Where the ADU is located and how it is accessed should definitely be considered. Proper sound control should be addressed as well.
Another thing to consider is the look of your ADU. An ADU should feel connected to the main house in terms of architecture and design. When we design an ADU, we want it to look like it has always been a part of the property, as opposed to an ill-considered afterthought. We take cues from the architecture of the main house and use similar materials in the ADU, such as stucco, siding, stone, roofing—even flooring and paint.
