California state law allows homeowners to build ADUs that are up to 1,200 square feet in size — the size of many starter homes. For properties with large backyards, as well as families seeking a multigenerational living situation, building a large detached ADU can be a great option to bring everyone together, as one Reseda family found by partnering with a Revival Homes contractor.
More Living Space for Loved Ones
Nearly 20% of Americans live in multigenerational households. But all too often, houses are designed for the immediate family, and aren’t large enough for multiple generations to live comfortably under one roof. Fortunately, ADUs help to solve this problem.
After the Reseda family started having children, the husband’s parents, who lived in the area, expressed interest in pitching in with childcare. This went so well that the family started planning for an ADU large enough for the grandparents to live in, right next door to their grandchildren. Given that the property has a large, flat backyard, the homeowners decided to go big, and build a comfortable, spacious “forever home” for Grandma and Grandpa.
The homeowners found a perfect fit for their project in a Revival Homes partner contractor. The contractor delivered a clean, modern finished product that matched the look and feel of the main house on the property. Extra bedrooms make sleepovers at Grandma and Grandpa’s a snap, and a spacious living room gets used for movie nights. For Mom and Dad, it’s an opportunity to have grandparents close to home, but with a degree of separation and privacy.
