Pico Rivera ADU Keeps Family Close

Pico Rivera, CA
1 bedroom
1 bath
380 sq. ft.

Maria, a homeowner in Pico Rivera, was looking for a way for her daughter, Stephanie, and her son-in-law, Arturo, to live in the neighborhood nearby. It turned out the answer was right in Maria’s backyard. With Revival Homes’ help, Maria was able to transform a detached two-car garage (which wasn’t even being used for parking) into a lovely, space-efficient home for Stephanie and Arturo.

Running the Numbers

The first step was helping Maria determine her project budget. Revival Homes, as both a financing platform and a construction marketplace, was well-equipped to analyze Maria’s finances, prequalify her for different loan products, and recommend a financing approach. After helping Maria assess her options, she secured a HELOC (home equity line of credit) from her local credit union, enabling the project to move forward.

Southern California homeowners also know that building an ADU can make their home significantly more valuable. Revival Homes used its Big Data model to help Maria forecast the gain in home value that she would likely see by converting her garage into an ADU, finding that it could raise the home’s value by 20%.

The Right Match

After assisting Maria in nailing down a project budget, and getting a better understanding of the features Stephanie and Arturo were looking for in their new home, it was time to connect her to a Revival Homes partner contractor. Freddie was the right match for Maria’s ADU — as an expert in garage conversion projects, he developed a design plan that would get the most out of the ADU’s 380 square feet, including touches like vaulted ceilings that would give the home a more spacious feel.

The Finished Product

Stephanie and Arturo’s new home has a clean, modern feel. The kitchen appliances are stainless steel, selected for energy efficiency. The living room, just opposite the kitchen, is filled with natural light. The bathroom has wood floorings and cabinetry, with a compact walk-in shower surrounded by glass.

The ADU has been a perfect first home for Stephanie and Arturo, and enabled them to join the nearly 20% of Americans who live in multigenerational households. Now, Maria stays close to them, without being too close.
